As we approach the presidential elections in 2016, the possible changes of tomorrow and the always impending dangers of political decisions fill the air. The weather doesn’t seem to be helping the already uneasy hearts of Americans either as earthquakes and flooding continue to move our nation, not to mention the wars that threaten our freedom. We are truly living in the last of the last days, but be of good cheer and fear not!
Being bombarded daily with these details of the world in which we live there must be a flushing out of the destruction of evil and the renewal of the hope that is found in those belonging to the kingdom of God. Our minds must be reshaped to the truth of God’s Word.
Romans 12:2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your MIND
When we, through the Word of God, place our constant trust in the safeguarding of our lives and all matters that pertain to our families all fear and anxiety of the future is removed. God has never been willing to see the righteous forsaken or their descendants begging bread; He just won’t allow it. Even when the justice of God in the Old Testament demanded that Sodom and Gomorrah be removed the righteous supplications of Abraham brought deliverance to Lot and his family. In fact, the order to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah could not be carried out until the righteous were removed.
Genesis 19:22 “Hurry, escape there. For I cannot do anything until you arrive there”
The children of God must know that Satan cannot steal, kill and destroy at will those that have been washed in the blood of Jesus and given the host of heaven as enforcers of their protection. In the book of Job, Satan complained to God about the hedge that had been placed around Job and around his household and around all that he had on every side. We are in this world but we are not of it or of the sway to which it is under. It is our faith that overcomes the world and gives us victory, as we are untouched.
In 1 John 5:18 we see this exact thought outlined and if you study it out it reads like this:
“We know that whoever is born of God/Love does not sin; but he who has been born of Love, Love guards him, and the wicked one does not touch him.”
We are the protected! No weapon, spiritually, emotionally, physically, relationally or financially can work itself against us and prosper, for this is our heritage as righteous children of God. As we dwell in the secret place of the Most High and abide under the shadow of the Almighty our deliverance and protection is not a matter of “IF” or “WHEN” but a constant knowing that right now we are set on high and removed from the effect of the evil one.
Psalms 91:7-8 A thousand may fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand; but IT WILL NOT COME NEAR YOU. Only with your eyes shall you look, and see the reward of the wicked.
Your righteousness goes before you declaring your every move and the glory of the Lord is your rear guard. You are, as my wife prays every time we drive away from our house on a trip, covered bumper to bumper side to side with protection.
I encourage you to paint the image of your protection in your heart with the Word of God this month and give life to it by voicing God’s Word over your life, business and family; declare your position in the Lord and charge your angels to respond to the Word of the Lord.
Psalms 103:20 Bless the Lord, you His angels, who excel in strength, who do His will, heeding the voice of His word.
