The other night I was fretting over a decision, when I realized it was not that big of a deal. In the big scheme of things, in an eternal perspective, it is a blade of grass in a huge pasture. So I confidently come to You my Lord for help in the decision making.
As Your enemy, Lord, and ours, the devil defies You to save us. Ha! You did it once and for all: Jesus, You defeated satan on the cross! Now You arm us with faith which cannot be overpowered by the devil. We follow Your Word under the tutorage of the Holy Spirit and we cannot be beaten. You indwell us, and submitted to you, nothing can harm us. When things come against us, Your protection holds always!We are always everywhere guarded.
Sometimes the enemy uses people to come against us. Sometimes he uses governments to try to overcome us. But You Lord are greater than all! As we choose to be Your children and live in a deep committed relationship with You, You put Your shield of glory over us to protect us. You are our rear guard, so none can come behind us to deceive us.
Isaiah 58:8-9 (AMP
Then shall your light break forth like the morning, and your healing (your restoration and the power of a new life) shall spring forth speedily; your righteousness (your rightness, your justice, and your right relationship with God) shall go before you [conducting you to peace and prosperity], and the glory of the Lord shall be your rear guard 9 Then you shall call, and the Lord will answer; you shall cry, and He will say, Here I am.
Isaiah 4:5-6 (AMP)
5 And the Lord will create over the whole site, over every dwelling place of Mount Zion and over her assemblies, a cloud and smoke by day and the shining of a flaming fire by night; for over all the glory shall be a canopy (a defense of divine love and protection). 6 And there shall be a pavilion for shade in the daytime from the heat, and for a place of refuge and a shelter from storm and from rain.
Those who live rightly enjoy the protection of the glory of God. The glory is full of power and light; anyone covered by the glory has nothing to fear. God has promised a covering of His glory, a defense of divine love and protection.
There shall be a a place for shade against the heat and a refuge from storms and rain. What heat the enemy brings against us will not overcome us with God sheltering us; storms of discord and frenzy of panic and fear, of hatred and disease cannot vanquish us, because our loving God places His protective shield of glory over us. We walk with God ~ unafraid through storms. There shall be no sneaking up behind us to catch us off guard, because His glory is also our rear guard. Live without fear.
