God Protects and Defends
He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust.” Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler And from the perilous pestilence. He shall cover you with His feathers, And under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler. You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, Nor of the arrow that flies by day, Nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness, Nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday. A thousand may fall at your side, And ten thousand at your right hand; But it shall not come near you. Only with your eyes shall you look, And see the reward of the wicked. Because you have made the Lord, who is my refuge, Even the Most High, your dwelling place, No evil shall befall you, Nor shall any plague come near your dwelling; For He shall give His angels charge over you, To keep you in all your ways. In their hands they shall bear you up, Lest you dash your foot against a stone. You shall tread upon the lion and the cobra, The young lion and the serpent you shall trample underfoot. “Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him; I will set him on high, because he has known My name. He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him and honor him. With long life I will satisfy him, And show him My salvation.”
(Psalms 91:1-16 NKJV)
+God’s Holy Angels are used in His Protection Plan for His People.
Are they not all ministering spirits (Angels), sent forth to minister (give attendance or servanthood) to them who shall be heirs of salvation?
+Heirs of Salvation are the children of God.
For he shall give his angels charge over us, to keep us in all our ways.
+This is a warning to those who would dear to bring harm to the children of God.
Take heed that you despise not one of these little ones; for I say unto you, that in heaven their ANGELS do always behold the face of my Father who is in heaven.
+God always has at least one Angel assigned to everyone of His Children as a part of His protection plan for us. Amen and thank you Lord.
2 Thessalonians 1:6
Seeing it is a righteous thing with God to recompense (repay) tribulation (distress and affliction) to them that trouble you…
7 And shall not God AVENGE his own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though he bear long with them?
8 I tell you that he will AVENGE them speedily…
Dearly beloved, AVENGE NOT yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, VENGEANCE is MINE; I will REPAY, saith the Lord.
+God Himself is our Faithful Protector. Hallelujah!
God is our refuge and strength, A very present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, Even though the earth be removed, And though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; Though its waters roar and be troubled, Though the mountains shake with its swelling. Selah There is a river whose streams shall make glad the city of God, The holy place of the tabernacle of the Most High. God is in the midst of her, she shall not be moved; God shall help her, just at the break of dawn. The nations raged, the kingdoms were moved; He uttered His voice, the earth melted. The Lord of hosts is with us; The God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah
[Psalms 46:1-7 NKJV]
But now, thus says the Lord, who created you, O Jacob, And He who formed you, O Israel: “FEAR NOT, FOR I HAVE REDEEMED YOU; I HAVE CALLED YOU BY YOUR NAME; YOU ARE MINE. WHEN YOU PASS THROUGH THE WATERS, I WILL BE WITH YOU; AND THROUGH THE RIVERS, THEY SHALL NOT OVERFLOW YOU. WHEN YOU WALK THROUGH THE FIRE, YOU SHALL NOT BE BURNED, NOR SHALL THE FLAME SCORCH YOU. For I am the Lord your God, The Holy One of Israel, your Savior; I gave Egypt for your ransom, Ethiopia and Seba in your place”. [Isaiah 43:1-3 NKJV]
