Living Under The Protection Of The Almighty

When He hears our cry, our Father in Heaven looks upon us with love, grace and mercy. In answer to our prayers, sometimes He takes delight in giving us immediate answers, and sometimes He makes us wait. When this happens, it is for good reason – only He knows what is going on behind the scenes.

Most of the time though, what appears to be delays are only in fact His solutions that we have yet to recognise or acknowledge. We must trust that all our prayers are being answered, all according to God’s will for us. Hosea 14:8 says “I will answer their prayers and take care of them. Like an evergreen tree I will shelter them; I am the source of all their blessings.”

When faced with life’s uncertainties, if we look to God for our answers, He will guide us step by step along the path we must travel. Psalm 121:8 says “He will protect you as you come and go now and for ever.” If we could only see the wonderful orchestration of His plans for us, we would all be amazed!

God is the supreme ruler. He is ruler of the Heavens and Earth, and of all the powers and authorities. He is the one that has the final say in everything. Proverbs 19:21 says “People may plan all kinds of things, but the LORD’S will is going to be done.”

People may try to hurt you, but in the end, they will get what’s coming! We do not need to concern ourselves with this. God deals with people in a most loving way, and it is not up to us to seek vengeance of any kind. Deuteronomy 32:35 NKJV says “Vengeance is Mine, and recompense; Their foot shall slip in due time; For the day of their calamity is at hand, And the things to come hasten upon them!”

God wants you to understand something here. He will never leave or forsake you while you call to Him for help. This is just not His way at all. His way is for you to live confidently amidst all the trials and tribulations of this world, knowing full well that He is taking care of things for you. This is promised to us in Hebrews 13:5-6 NKJV ‘For He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” So we may boldly say: “The LORD is my helper; I will not fear. What can man do to me?”

When one understands the enormity of this promise made out of love for us, we shall become knowledgeable in the ways of the Kingdom. The further one walks upon this path of life, one begins to see all the answers coming to fruition. It all begins to unfold like a beautiful love story between man and his maker. Revelation 3:20 NKJV says “Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me.”

Let nothing stop you my friends, from walking the path of salvation. If you do, you will never get to experience the beauty and majesty of living a life filled with promises fulfilled, both here and in all eternity. Psalm 91:15-16 NKJV says “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.”

You will see the glory of His Kingdom come into your lives and into your homes, if you receive Jesus into your heart today. He is a faithful God, and His promises hold true. Deuteronomy 7:9 NKJV says “Therefore know that the LORD your God, He is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and mercy for a thousand generations with those who love Him and keep His commandments.”

It doesn’t matter what is going on around you, whether it be a recession, poverty, broken marriages and friendships, family quarrels, job losses, unpaid bills and mortgages, sicknesses and health problems. If you go to the LORD for safety, and you love him and acknowledge Him as LORD, then you shall live under the protection of the Almighty forever and ever! Amen.

PS Psalm 91:1-4 says ‘Whoever goes to the LORD for safety, whoever remains under the protection of the Almighty, can say to him, “You are my defender and protector. You are my God; in you I trust.” He will keep you safe from all hidden dangers and from all deadly diseases. He will cover you with His wings; you will be safe in his care; his faithfulness will protect and defend you.’ Amen.

All glory goes to the Father, Son and Holy Spirit whom I believe as always have guided me and instructed me with these words. May God bless you and keep you. Amen.
