God is our Protection

Those who live in the shelter of the Most High will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty… He will shield you with his wings. He will shelter you with his feathers. His faithful promises are your armor and protection.”
Psalm 91:1,4

I read about a clever little bird in the tropics who, before she leaves the nest, covers her young birds with leaves. Should a poisonous snake strike its tongue against the leaves, it will instantly recoil. The leaves are poisonous to the snake.

As Christians we also have an adequate covering against our adversary, the devil. God Himself is our covering. He shields us with his wings. He shelters us with his feathers. His faithful promises are our armor and protection (Psalm 91:1,4).

How have you experienced this?

Some years ago, when I was especially run down in body and spirit, I sensed an encroaching darkness descend upon me. On this particular day, I had gone to bed early but I couldn’t sleep. An ominous dread filled my heart. When I opened my eyes, I saw a dark figure had entered the room. I called for my husband to come and together we said, “In the name of Jesus Christ, we command you to leave. We are covered with the blood of Jesus Christ and you cannot touch us. We belong to God.”

Instantly, the darkness vanished.

In Christ, we have a covering that the powers of darkness cannot penetrate. Therefore, we have nothing to fear–ever.

Father, I thank you for the victory that is ours in Christ Jesus. Knowing that You are covering me and my family, I can now relax and go to sleep.
