Psalms 91:11 ERV “He will command his angels to protect you wherever you go.”
A Christian, at any level, can actually do without security operatives. As I took a walk at night yesterday, I went to get something from a shop nearby, I was conscious of the presence of angels and I meditated on the story about Elisha and his servant.
The king of Aram sent horses, chariots, and a large army to Dothan, to capture Elisha the man of God from his house. They arrived at night and surrounded the city. In the morning, Elisha’s servant woke up and was scared when he saw them. He ran into the house to tell Elisha, and Elisha laughed out loud! Hahaha! Then Elisha prayed and said, “Lord, I ask you, open my servant’s eyes so that he can see.” The Lord opened the eyes of the young man, and the servant saw the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire. They were all around Elisha. Hallelujah!
It’s okay to employ private guards if you can afford them, but your trust should be in God alone; Psalms 127:1 says “If it is not the Lord who watches over the city, the guards are wasting their time.” You are not only protected from physical attackers, you are also protected from spiritual attackers; from diseases and all other forms of attack! It doesn’t matter how close they are to where you are, neither does it matter if others around you are being hit; the word of God says that even though you see it with your eyes, it will never come near you! Glory to God!
