God says you are: Protected

Proverbs 18:10  ” The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous run to it and are safe.”  Especially this year and what’s happening with COVID 19 we can’t take the protection of God lightly.  But instead of me rattling on, I feel it’s more important to read what the Word of God says.  Psalm 20:1 “May the Lord answer you when you are in distress; may the name of the God of Jacob protect you.”    Job 11:18 “You will be secure, because there is hope; you will look about you and take your rest in safety.”   Psalm 69:29 “I am in pain and distress; may Your salvation, O God, protect me.”  There is protection in the powerful name of the Lord, and He assures us that He will keep us safe from  calamity, and enemies…including COVID 19.

Job 1:9-10 ” Does Job fear God for nothing? Satan replied. Have You not put a hedge around him and his household and everything he has?”

Satan accused Job before God by challenging Job’s motive.  Satan claimed that Job lived as he did because he was blessed of God and had not suffered or paid the price for God’s continuing grace in his life.  He questioned Job’s godliness as being just a means to financial gain, not true reverence.  The Accuser ,Satan, is always lurking around, contesting, shaming, and heaping guilt… but remember this – he is powerless to penetrate that hedge of protection God has placed around us…unless we allow him.
