His Protecting Presence

Though a thousand fall at your side, though ten thousand are dying around you, these evils will not touch you (Psalm 91:7 nlt).

There are so many things we can be afraid of in life. With around-the-clock news coverage of the coronavirus, our fears only seem to get affirmed. After all, we don’t know what is coming next.

But in Psalm 91, we find this promise for believers: “Though a thousand fall at your side, though ten thousand are dying around you, these evils will not touch you” (Psalm 91:7 nlt).

Know that God is in control of our very lives. Isn’t that great to know? It isn’t over until it’s over. Until that time, we can live with boldness. 

I read the story of a courageous Christian who was standing before a king who wanted him to deny Christ. The king threatened, “If you don’t do it, I will banish you.”

The Christian replied, “You can’t banish me from Christ. He says He will never leave me nor forsake me.”

The king said, “I will confiscate your property and take it all from you.”

The Christian said, “My treasures are laid up on high; you cannot get them.”

“I will kill you,” the king told him.

“I have been dead forty years,” the Christian answered. “I have been dead with Christ; dead to the world. My life is hid with Christ in God, and you cannot touch it.”

The king said, “What can you do with such a fanatic?”

May God give us more Christians who know something of God’s protection like this believer did. However, there is a difference between trusting the Lord and testing the Lord. Don’t take unnecessary risks and expect Him to bail you out. Yes, He will keep us in all of our ways—but our ways should be His ways.
