Portion of Protection

As I spent time today in prayer, talking with my Father, I sensed an urgency to pray for those that need protection. Immediately, this promise came to my spirit:
He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall remain stable and fixed under the shadow of the Almighty [Whose power no foe can withstand]. I will say of the Lord, He is my Refuge and my Fortress, my God; on Him I lean and rely, and in Him I [confidently] trust! For [then] He will deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the deadly pestilence. -Psalms 91:1-3

It seems as though anxiety, worry, stress and preoccupation occupy our minds, and oppress our spirits so much so that we tend to lose sight of and forget God's promises to us, His creation, His children. As the New Year began, I found myself asking for Peace, asking God to fill my life, my heart, my mind with His Peace. I quickly noticed that the more I asked Him for Peace, the more I found comfort when the stressful times came, weather it be regarding finances, business, or whatever situation may arise and try to come against us. I have come to realize that a good part of the devil's time is spent on trying to make us lose our focus and our concentration on keeping God's Word alive in our heart and spirit. When those anxiety attacks and "worry warps" as I like to call them, come and try to infiltrate our minds and get us to focus on anything other than God's Word, we need to pause, take a break, see the works of the enemy, call him out and declare that we are dwelling and fixed under the shadow of the Almighty! Call upon the overshadowing Power of His Presence and see how quickly that attack will disappear! 

If you have been feeling overwhelmed with anxiety, if you need to remember that you dwell under His mighty protection, I say to you this day, that no weapon formed against you will prosper, I say to you that He rescues you from hidden traps, shields you from deadly hazards. His huge outstretched arms protect you— under them you’re perfectly safe; His arms fend off all harm!  Get up, lift your eyes and your head to the Heavens and declare that you are protected. Your Father is watching over you, over that situation and I call you triumphant and victorious over what you are going through!  He paid it all, He overcame it and it's yours! Claim it and watch Him work in and through you!  

Keep these Scriptures close to your heart and soul and the devil will flee at the mention of His name!

The Lord will keep you from all evil; He will keep your life. The Lord will keep your going out and your coming in from this time forth and forevermore. -Psalms 121:7-8

But no weapon that is formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue that shall rise against you in judgment you shall show to be in the wrong. This [peace, righteousness, security, triumph over opposition] is the heritage of the servants of the Lord [those in whom the ideal Servant of the Lord is reproduced]; this is the righteousness or the vindication which they obtain from Me [this is that which I impart to them as their justification], says the Lord. -Isaiah 54:17

Yet the Lord is faithful, and He will strengthen [you] and set you on a firm foundation and guard you from the evil [one]. -2 Thessalonians 3:3

For the Lord delights in justice and forsakes not His saints; they are preserved forever, but the offspring of the wicked [in time] shall be cut off. -Psalms 37:28

The eternal God is your refuge and dwelling place, and underneath are the everlasting arms; He drove the enemy before you and thrust them out, saying, Destroy! -Deuteronomy 33:27  

Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore will I deliver him; I will set him on high, because he knows and understands My name [has a personal knowledge of My mercy, love, and kindness—trusts and relies on Me, knowing I will never forsake him, no, never]. He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him.With long life will I satisfy him and show him My salvation. 

 It is my prayer that this reflection be a part of your daily portion.
