Job 5:19-22 “He shall deliver you in six troubles, yes, in seven
no evil shall touch you. In famine He shall redeem you from
death, and in war from the power of the sword. You shall
be hidden from the scourge of the tongue, and you shall not
be afraid of destruction when it comes. You shall laugh at
destruction and famine.”
There are many believers who have been greatly discouraged in the area of protection. Perhaps, you have experienced a very difficult or even tragic event or are going through a very challenging
situation right now. I want to encourage you to build your faith upon His promises and not upon your experiences. The word of God says that, in this world, we will have troubles (John 16:33). The fact that God declares in His word that He will deliver you from troubles tells us that experiencing troubles is part of the Christian journey. But God wants us to know that, the more you hear preaching on Psalm 91, the more you quote it and remind yourself of the Lord’s protection daily, the more your faith in His protection will grow. Faith comes from “hearing, and hearing by the word of Christ” (Rom. 10:17). The more you hear, the more you believe. The more you claim and pray the prayer of protection, the more you will walk in its blessings. That is the intention of this devotional guide, to saturate you with the hearing and hearing of the Lord’s protection promises for your life until your faith is robust and overflowing. Experiencing deliverance from trouble is fantastic, but there is a promise that is even greater and that is when you are at that place where “no evil shall touch you”. That is my prayer for you and your loved ones. While you live in dangerous times, you have an almighty God who watches over you. May you increase and have a progressive revelation of the Lord’s protection in these last days.
Confession for Today
