We are living in the days of wars and rumors of wars, one country is fighting against another country. People are losing their lives and properties, and economic collapse, hunger, and starvation have become the norm. So many are afraid for their lives.
Insecurity and lack of protection are seen among us. Our military men are worried and concerned about the present situation in the country. Families of the militaries are worried about the safety of their spouses.
In such a period as this, we need to anchor our trust in God’s word to find confidence in our lives. For He will never leave us nor forsake us, He will always guide and protect us in the midst of any difficult situation.
These are some Bible verses that will help us understand that His protection is upon our lives:
…God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.
2 Thessalonians 3:3
But the Lord is faithful. He will establish you and guard you against the evil one.
He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say to the Lord, “My refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.”
Though I walk in the midst of trouble, you preserve my life; you stretch out your hand against the wrath of my enemies, and your right hand delivers me.
No weapon that is fashioned against you shall succeed, and you shall confute every tongue that rises against you in judgment. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord and their vindication from me, declares the Lord.
The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous man runs into it and is safe.
You are a hiding place for me; you preserve me from trouble; you surround me with shouts of deliverance.
What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?
Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the Lord your God who goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you.
2 Timothy 4:18
The Lord will rescue me from every evil deed and bring me safely into his heavenly kingdom. To him be the glory forever and ever. Amen.
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.
Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil.
The Lord is on my side; I will not fear. What can man do to me?
Behold, I have given you authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall hurt you.
But let all who take refuge in you rejoice; let them ever sing for joy, and spread your protection over them, that those who love your name may exult in you.
And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.
I can do all things through him who strengthens me.
2 Corinthians 4:8-9
We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not driven to despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed…
He only is my rock and my salvation, my fortress; I shall not be greatly shaken.
1 John 5:18
We know that everyone who has been born of God does not keep on sinning, but he who was born of God protects him, and the evil one does not touch him.
1 Corinthians 10:13
No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation, he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.
Behold, I am with you and will keep you wherever you go and will bring you back to this land. For I will not leave you until I have done what I have promised you.
No evil shall be allowed to befall you, no plague come near your tent.
Now when these things begin to take place, straighten up and raise your heads because your redemption is drawing near.
A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you.
