O my Strength, I will watch and give heed to You and sing praises; for God is my Defense (my Protector and High Tower). Psalms 59:9 (AMPC)
The moment we get fully convinced that there’s nothing we could possibly ever need or want that the Lord isn’t or hasn’t, then that’s when we shall start living unfettered and carefree as a bird.
Whatever things we will ever require in life are found in the Lord. He is everything and has everything that makes life possible, livable, and enjoyable.
So He doesn’t just give us things we need and want but He Himself is those things.
He doesn’t just give us defense or defend us against our adversaries but He Himself is our defense.
The Lord is our sure defense against all danger, enmity, and harm. He is our protector, He is our protection.
We shouldn’t walk through life uneasy, apprehensive, and scared to death because of the uncertainties, problems and troubles of the world. Someone has got us covered all around. He assures us that when we pass through the waters He will be with us, and through the rivers, they will not overwhelm us. When we walk through the fire, we will not be burned or scorched, nor will the flame kindle upon us. See- Isaiah 43:2 (AMPC)
We will no doubt face and go through problems, troubles, or danger but none of it will overpower, crush, or destroy us because the Lord with us, all around us is our proven and reliable defense.
The Lord is our defense against the evil schemes of men and all wickedness. He’s our defense against slander, false accusation, malice, and defamation. No need to be afraid of the plots of the ungodly.
He’s our defense against deadly diseases and plagues.
No need to go around anxious and in dread of the ever springing up strains of deadly infections, germs, viruses, or pandemics. No need to be in bondage afraid of a world embroiled in all sorts of wars whether economic, nuclear, or cyber. The Lord is our defense against every and any weapon of mass destruction.
No need to be afraid of natural disasters; be they earthquakes, storms, floods, droughts or the ever unstable environmental and climate change. The Lord is our defense against all peril.
Psalms 91:3-7 (GNT) He will keep you safe from all hidden dangers and from all deadly diseases. He will cover you with his wings; you will be safe in his care; his faithfulness will protect and defend you. You need not fear any dangers at night or sudden attacks during the day or the plagues that strike in the dark or the evils that kill in daylight. A thousand may fall dead beside you, ten thousand all around you, but you will not be harmed.
All you need to do is declare and rest in this truth that; O my Strength, I will watch and give heed to You and sing praises; for God is my Defense (my Protector and High Tower).
