Your Right to Safety and Protection
Regardless of what goes on in the world-the threat of terrorism, war or outbreaks of disease-you should live with the confidence that God will keep you safe and protected. You have no reason to live in fear as long as you trust in His promise to shield you from danger. No matter what you see on the news, you must not be afraid!
God's Word is filled with promises to deliver His people from terror and destruction (Psalm 91:5). As you live in obedience to Him and confidently rely on His Word, you can rest assured that nothing evil will happen to you, and neither will any sickness or disease come near you (vv. 10-11). God has assigned angels to make sure of it.
However, the promises made in Psalm 91 will only become a reality in your life when you do what verse 9 says: ".make the Most High [our] dwelling." (New International Version). In other words, you must trust in God completely, above anything and anyone, where your safety and protection are concerned.
Isaiah 54:14-17 says that by being firmly established in our righteousness-your right-standing relationship with the Father-you have a right to safety and protection. To be established in righteousness simply means to be firmly convinced that you are the righteousness of God. It gives you the right to benefit from all of heaven's resources in order to keep you safe.
Your part in living under God's protective covering is critical. You must build a daily regimen of: (1) reading and studying the Bible; (2) thinking in line with God's Word; and (3) confessing (or speaking) scriptures that deal with your safety. When you learn to live by these principles, you will achieve the results you desire.
