Divine Full-Coverage Lifetime Protection

Psalm 27:1   (NLT)

The Lord is my light and my salvation—
so why should I be afraid?
The Lord is my fortress, protecting me from danger,
so why should I tremble?

Psalm 27.1 - Divine Full-Coverage ProtectionDarkness, devastation, destruction, devil, death—these are things that scare many of us. Scary people, objects, and situations come our way. They’re real. We don’t deny them, and we don’t have to; we just deny them control.

The Lord is our light amid darkness; He’s our salvation in perilous situations. He’s inside of us, by our side, before us, and behind us. He surrounds us with an impenetrable shield, and yes, with songs of deliverance. So, when enemies rise before us, we don’t worry; we don’t fear; we rise above them. Our God is God Most High.

The Lord is God. His power transcends any and every threat coming our way. He has never failed, and He will never ever do. He’s loving, righteous, holy, and just. He’s not a malicious or capricious God who occasionally desires to see His children beaten down by their enemies just for the fun of it. There’s no ill-will in Him—no spot of mischief.

Enemies may abound, the mountains and hills may crumble, but our God is on our side; His throne is established. He comes and saves. His presence is protection. There’s nothing the enemy can do to those living in God’s secret place—under the Almighty’s wings.

There are those who wish our downfall; that will remain a wish. We don’t delight in our enemies’ failure, but their devices against us often boomerang to them. We don’t cower; we don’t get intimidated; we don’t get paralyzed into inaction. We live joyfully and victoriously—with our shoulders humbly squared; our heads humbly held high; melody remains in our hearts; confidence is in our every step.

We have a divine, full-coverage, lifetime protection. We’re dauntless. Unto Him be all the glory; unto Him be all the praise.

No Fear of Bad News

Psalm 112:7   (KJV)   7 He shall not be afraid of evil tidings: his heart is fixed, trusting in the Lord.

Bad news doesn’t scare believers. Our hearts and sights are set not on all the evil things going on around us; they’re steadily fixed on the Lord. Situations may be scary in the Psalm 112.7 - No Fear of Bad Newsnatural, but we always trust in our absolutely trustworthy God and Father. He’s always much bigger than our biggest problems and worst situations.

We don’t deny the existence of evil tidings. Bad things abound. They surround us. We live in an ever-darkening world that can’t stand what we stand for. There are enemies who don’t take it sitting down. They want to continue doing evil, and they won’t rest until they utterly get rid of the godly.

We live in peace. Goliaths of life are big, but God is bigger. We don’t deny evil, we face them head-on. We don’t take them lightly; evil and sin are serious matters. We don’t play around with them; to do so is to court disaster. No. We deal with them decisively and uncompromisingly. We don’t give in to them; we don’t surrender to them. We may be in the minority, but fewer doesn’t always mean weaker. We’re for God, thus, He’s for us; and “…If God be for us, who can be against us?” (Romans 8:31).

God’s Plans Fulfilled

revelation-10-7-gods-plans-fulfilled

Revelation 10:7   (KJV)   7 But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets.

All of God’s sovereign plans will be accomplished; there’s no force—human or demonic that can stop, derail, or delay what He has purposed. There are those who work contrary to God’s will and God’s plans; some, knowingly and deliberately; some, unknowingly and ignorantly. But whatever the nature is of any deterrence to what God declares, they will all fail. God’s plans will prevail. It will be a horrible time for His enemies; it will be glorious for us.

We look forward to that time; we look up and watch, when the curtains of the mysteries of God open, when we understand them, and when the things existing in our faith become visible. People can say whatever they want to say. Many people today think we’re deceived, that we believe in fairy tales, that we’re hurting others for leading them astray, that we’re propagating a lie, that we’re enemies of progress. It’s not always easy, but we patiently bear the burdens.

We will be vindicated. Just because there are more people and louder voices deriding us doesn’t mean we’re wrong; majority isn’t always right. We look like underdogs in this conflict, but we’re the underdogs who are guaranteed with victory. This assurance comes from Someone Who has seen the end from the beginning. Systems and ideologies come and go; kings and kingdoms rise and fall, history will continue to have expected and unexpected twists and turns, but all these lead to the fulfillment of God’s decrees. We often hear people say, “There’s nothing sure here on earth;” this is true if God isn’t in the equation. But God doesn’t change; His promises are true. What He says will happen will happen. This is the anchor of our hope; this is the solid rock we stand on. We’re right, and everyone—even our accusers will recognize this.
