In peace I will both lie down and sleep; for you alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety - Psalm 4:8.
Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go” — Joshua 1:9.
God is your personal security who pays attention to you to make sure that nothing bad happens to you day and night—forever. He understands without guidance people fall and get hurt making it the reason why he protects us (Proverbs 11:14).
Despite what is happening around you, with a relationship with God you are protected from surrounding danger.
The Lord will keep you from all harm, he will watch over your life; the Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore - Psalm 121:7-8.
There's no need to be afraid of anything when you are surrounded by God's protection. “For He will give His angels charge concerning you, to guard you in all your ways.” —Psalm 91:11. This mean that God will instruct his angels to watch over us. God has given some angels a purpose—to guard his children, and those who are faithful will be under the constant care of his angels.
This is God's perfect love. "There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love" —1 John 4:18.
“For it is written, ‘He will command His angels concerning you to guard you carefully" —Psalm 91:11. God sends his angels to protect those who have committed themselves to his loving care. “The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear Him, and He delivers them" —Psalm 34:7.
God sends his angels down to his true children and rescues them from danger—if we choose to trust him (Matthew 18:10). God assigns angels to each of us for our protection. And the angels who are our liaison, have direct access to God.
“Are not all angels ministering spirits sent to serve those who will inherit salvation?” —Hebrews 1:14. Angels are servants of God that carry out his desires, and work for our good for those of us who have accepted salvation. Outside of God's salvation you are subjected to circumstance.
In a relationship with God, you are no longer subjected to circumstances rather circumstances are subjected to you. This is the assurance we have as believers.
“See, I am sending an angel ahead of you to guard you along the way and to bring you to the place I have prepared” —Exodus 23:20.
“Because he loves me,” says the Lord, “I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name. He will call on me, and I will answer him I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him.” —Psalm 91:14–15.
Not knowing what God is saying concerning your life can be harmful. Without this knowledge you will live a life of fear, concern, or anxiety. You will live a life of limitation while being subjected to gloom as opposed to living a life of fearlessness and freedom.
God's Word is good news. It is your joy, peace, guidance, and life source.
God's great love expresses his care, grace, and mercy to everyone (Isaiah 65:1). This is the mystery of his love. But why not be in a position where it is guaranteed, constant, and forever? This is possible by accepting salvation.
The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous man runs into it and is safe - Proverbs 18:10.
