In one of the scenes from War Room, the latest Kendrick Brothers movie to come out in theaters, Elizabeth and Miss Clara are walking along when a guy comes up to them with a knife in his hand, demanding that they give him their money. Elizabeth is super scared and about to do so, but Miss Clara refuses. She commands him in Jesus’ name to put down his knife. He responds by putting it away and leaving! When the police come, and are filing a report, Miss Clara tells them to remember to write down that she told him to put away his knife in JESUS’ name, because people leave Him out all too often. Throughout the entire situation, Elizabeth is extremely nervous, while Miss Clara remains calm because of her trust in God.
In today’s crazy world, tragic events take place quite often. How can you feel safe and secure in the midst of the chaos around you? By putting your faith in God’s protection! In Psalm 91, God promises supernatural protection from all kinds of danger to those who belong to Him. Here are a few of those promises –
- Thousands may fall all around you, but what is affect them will not come near you. (verse 7)
- If you make God your refuge, no harm will overcome you, nor shall any disaster come near where you live. (verses 9-10)
- He will command angels to guard you. (verse 11)
- He will rescue, protect, and deliver you. (verses 14-15)
God’s Word will never return to Him empty. It accomplishes what He sent it to do (Isaiah 55:11). When He promises you protection, you can be certain that you are safe!
There is power in the name of Jesus! His name is above all others (Philippians 2:9). John 16:23 promises that whatever you ask for in His name will be done for you. If you ever need someone to come to your rescue, call upon His name. He is the Savior – He wants to save you!
Because of God’s protection, you can feel safe, even in the midst of a crazy, chaotic world. With Him on your side, you are well protected!
