“His Protection and Deliverance”
The Lord will keep you from all evil; He will keep your life. The Lord will keep your going out and your coming in from this time forth and forevermore. Psalm 121:7-8
I believe we are living in the onset of PERILOUS times. Yet these verses in Psalm 121 gives us the ASSURANCE of our LOVING, HEAVENLY FATHER’S GUARANTEE to be the KEEPER of our life. (v5) In verse seven, we are told that: “The Lord will KEEP us from ALL evil,” meaning that we need NOT fear what today, tomorrow, or eternity, holds, because we KNOW WHO holds our FUTURE; that is; IF WE ARE HIS CHILD. And as Joseph told his brothers, who MEANT EVIL upon him, we can say too; “You meant evil against me, but God meant it for GOOD.” (Gen. 50:20) Keep in mind; “He will KEEP your life.”
God CARES about EVERYTHING we encounter, even the small, insignificant things. That’s why the Psalmist could say with ASSURANCE, that; “The Lord will KEEP your GOING OUT and your COMING IN from this time forth and FOREVERMORE.” (Eternity). Sometimes it is the will of God that we go through the fire, in order to STRENGTHEN our FAITH and TRUST in Him. But we NEVER have to face ANY KIND of ADVERSITY on our OWN. He has PROMISED NEVER TO LEAVE nor FORSAKE us. And He DOES KEEP His promises. What a BLESSING to KNOW that God has PROMISED His PROTECTION and DELIVERANCE in WHATEVER WE MIGHT FACE in our DAILY LIVES. We can have that ASSURANCE of casting ALL our cares on Him because He cares about us. (1 Peter 5:7) Do you have that ASSURANCE?
If you have NOT given your HEART and LIFE to God, then you DO NOT possess that ASSURANCE. But God wants you to have the GUARANTEE of His PROTECTION and DELIVERANCE from ALL EVIL. In order to do that, you MUST BE WILLING to TURN AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle and TURN TO GOD, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART. And CONFESS your sins to Him and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS. BELIEVING with ALL your HEART, that Jesus died for YOU, and that He is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God. Then you MUST ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION and BE ASSURED of His Hand of PROTECTION and DELIVERANCE. Do this NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
