“A thousand may fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand; but it shall not come near you. Only with your eyes shall you look, and see the reward of the wicked. Because you have made the Lord, who is my refuge, Even the Most High, your dwelling place, No evil shall befall you, Nor shall any plague come near your dwelling; For He shall give His angels charge over you, To keep you in all your ways” (Psalm 91:7-11 (NKJV)).
Life can be very challenging at times. Especially, for a woman who walks in the world with a spiritual father yet lacks the accountability of a physical one. Or a woman who is mothered, yet motherless, due to undeveloped practice of motherhood. Or a woman who is guarded in pain, yet humbled in prayer… Yes, life can be hard for her.
But I am here to tell you that God is more than all of these challenges in one. He can heal every crevice of pain that the enemy tries to pull out of your darkest closest on a Saturday night. And while I understand the pain of past misfortune – God has warned me that you are weary due to the inability to reach out and use the strength of your father. God has healed you of your past, yet every time a test indicates a limitation due to past calamity, you begin to weep of weary out of fear of disappointment.
Hear me, and hear me clear.
God’s word says that, “No evil shall befall you, Nor shall any plague come near your dwelling; For He shall give His angels charge over you, To keep you in all your ways” (Psalm 91:11). There is no limitation in God’s ability to deliver you from evil. You must truly understand that your past has left you and your future is bright, and although what you see offers a limited perspective due to past misfortune – Your Father has warned that, “A thousand may fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand; but it shall not come near you” (Psalm 91:7). Your past can no longer hinder you, it can no longer hold you back, and it can no longer prevent the advancement of your existence. You are under divine protection as you, “have made the Lord, who is my refuge, Even the Most High, your dwelling place” (Psalm 91:9).
Repeat After Me
Though I have one thousand worries of past perspectives, discouragement, and financial insecurity, I find faith in God knowing that He will send His angels to protect me from every worry.
