Are you tired of being bombarded by distressing headlines and unsettling news? In the midst of all the chaos, it’s easy to lose sight of something crucial: God’s unwavering protection and love for you. Let’s delve into the uplifting message found in Psalms which provides a source of comfort, reminding us of the shield of security we have in Him.
You shall not be afraid of the terror by night,— Psalms 91:5-7 (NKJV)
Nor of the arrow that flies by day,
Nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness,
Nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday.
A thousand may fall at your side,
And ten thousand at your right hand;
But it shall not come near you.
These words are like a soothing balm for a weary soul. They speak of divine guardianship, a promise that transcends circumstances and dispels fear. The imagery of arrows, pestilence, and destruction is a representation of the trials and uncertainties that assail us in life. But within this tumultuous backdrop, there is an assurance that as God’s precious child, you are shielded.
Yes, the world might be experiencing turmoil, but you are under the wings of the Almighty. The promise acknowledges that difficulties will arise. Yet ultimately, they will not triumph over you. This passage echoes a profound truth: no matter how intense the battle, victory is certain for those who put their trust in God.
So, while the news headlines may be unsettling, don’t let fear take root. Instead, hold onto the assurance that God is for you. His love is your fortress, His protection your shield. He sees your struggles and knows your heart. In a world filled with uncertainties, His promises remain steadfast.
Believe this truth, receive it, and let it permeate your thoughts. Amid the noise of the world, anchor your soul in the unshakable truth that you are a beloved child of God, and His protection surrounds you. With this knowledge, you can face each day with courage, knowing that you are enveloped in the safety of His embrace.
