Isn’t it interesting to note how beautifully the Lord keeps us each day!!
Days, months, years; gladly passing by before us one after the other. From them all, we are witnesses to cherishing good days and even learning lessons from bad days as well. As children of God we know it’s Him, who is keeping a watch over us day in and day out. This makes me 🤔- How mindful and caring our God is!!!
As birds flying, so will the Lord of hosts defend Jerusalem; defending also he will deliver it; and passing over he will preserve it. Isaiah 31:5
Put your name instead of Jerusalem and read this verse for yourself. You are loved! 😊
- He Defends Jerusalem,
- He Delivers her,
- He Preserves her.
11 WAYS HOW HE PROTECTS/DEFENDS US:
1. He protects by making a hedge around us – Old Testament saint Job had a hedge around him(Job1:10) Thanks to Jesus, we the New Testament saints have several hedges around us – His Blood, His Name, His Word, The Holy Spirit as a fiery wall, His Angels, The Church and many more.
2. As the mountains are round about Jerusalem, so the Lord is round about his people from henceforth even for ever.Psalms 125:2 The Lord envelopes us like a mountain range and so when the enemy approaches he can see only the mountains, not us.
3. On the left hand, where he doth work, but I cannot behold him: he hideth himself on the right hand, that I cannot see him: Job 23:9 He protects us even on our left and right making sure the adversary doesn’t come near us.
4. And the cloud of the Lord was upon them by day, when they went out of the camp. Numbers 10:34 He kept the Israelites as a cloud by day. He protects us in the same way too. What a wonderful God, who is so keen and diligent to preserve us left, right even from above!!
5. The eternal God is thy refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms: Deuteronomy 33:27 How marvellous! There isn’t even a gap left for the enemy to even come near us.
What need does this Great God have to care for us so much? Thats because of His love and compassion for you and me.
