Read: Psalm 82
Key Verse: “Defend the cause of the weak and fatherless; maintain the rights of the poor and oppressed. Rescue the weak and needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked.” - Psalm 82:4
Most people have no idea how many threats their nation faces. Security is a constant consideration. Nations, terrorists, rebels, and angry citizens are all capable of doing massive amounts of damage. Your country probably has elaborate systems and organizational development with the goal of protecting her people. There are also spiritual battles and threats in the heavenly realms that you do not see each day.
The devil was at work trying to crush Peter, but Jesus was praying for Peter (Luke 22:31). How many times has God protected you without you even realizing it? I think when you get to heaven and your eyes are fully opened and your mind fully aware, you will bow down and thank God for the protection you have received. God keeps His eye on the weak, the fatherless, the poor, the oppressed, and those who fear Him.
