Psalm 121:5-8 The LORD is thy keeper: the LORD is thy shade upon
thy right hand. The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night.
The LORD shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul. The
LORD shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth,
and even for evermore.
There are limits to what human security can do, but there is no limit to God’s security and protection over your life, Psa.127:1. The Almighty God who has called and chosen you in Christ to serve Him will surely keep you so that you can continue to do His will on earth. Why do you think Pharaoh could not just throw a spear or shoot an arrow at Moses all the while that Moses demanded Israel’s freedom from his land? It is because when God sends you on an assignment, He goes with you. Jesus promised that He will never leave us nor forsake us (Matt.28:20).
God has promised to be with you when you go through the waters and through the fire (Isa.43:2). They will not overwhelm or consume you. In Psalm 23:4, David declared that even though he walked through the valley of the shadow of death, he would fear no evil because God was with him. God’s Angels are also encamping (lodging) around you and their assignment is to divinely deliver you from all harm (Psa.34:7).
The mercies of God are also a source of our divine preservation. Varying mercies that we desire are available to us through Christ, whether it is journey mercies, healing mercies, or any other kind of mercy. Because of God’s mercies, you will not be consumed (Lam.3:22). Enter God’s presence right now and obtain His mercies (Heb.4:16).
Prayer Focus: Thank God for His presence with you and for His Angels and His mercies that are available to preserve you. Receive God’s mercies over your life and family today.
