God Our Protector


Psalm 91 New Living Translation (NLT)
Psalm 91

Those who live in the shelter of the Most High
    will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty.

Saying in other words Those whom acknowledge him will live in that of the highest among us Christ Jesus and will find safety in his shadow Whoever goes to the Lord for safety, whoever remains under the protection of the Almighty,


This I declare about the Lord:
He alone is my refuge, my place of safety;
    he is my God, and I trust him.

For He is refuge to my soul he is my safe place he is my father God and in whom I shall always trust can say to him,
“You are my defender and protector.
You are my God; in you I trust.”


For he will rescue you from every trap
    and protect you from deadly disease.

As believers he will rescue you from evil around you and keep you in protection from plagues and deadly disease He will keep you safe from all hidden dangers
and from all deadly diseases.


He will cover you with his feathers.
    He will shelter you with his wings.
    His faithful promises are your armor and protection.

He will protect you by his angels surrounding you in their wings always keeping his promises for the are your armor of protection


Do not be afraid of the terrors of the night,
    nor the arrow that flies in the day.

Do not fear the shadows of evil or the attacks in the light for he is your protection He will cover you with his wings; you will be safe in his care; his faithfulness will protect and defend you. You need not fear any dangers at night
or sudden attacks during the day


Do not dread the disease that stalks in darkness,
    nor the disaster that strikes at midday.

Do not fear disease and plagues or any tragedy and disaster of a new day or the plagues that strike in the dark
or the evils that kill in daylight.

Though a thousand fall at your side,
    though ten thousand are dying around you,
    these evils will not touch you.
Though so many are falling and dieing around you remain in knowledge that you are protected and saved throughout it all A thousand may fall dead beside you, ten thousand all around you, but you will not be harmed.


Just open your eyes,
    and see how the wicked are punished.

You will look and see how the wicked are punished.


If you make the Lord your refuge,
    if you make the Most High your shelter,

You have made the Lord your defender,
the Most High your protector,

10 
no evil will conquer you;
    no plague will come near your home.

and so no disaster will strike you,
no violence will come near your home.

11 
For he will order his angels
    to protect you wherever you go.

For my refuge is in him and he promises to protect me and keep me safe from all harm God will put his angels in charge of you to protect you wherever you go.

12 
They will hold you up with their hands
    so you won’t even hurt your foot on a stone.

They will hold you up with their hands
to keep you from hurting your feet on the stones.

13 
You will trample upon lions and cobras;
    you will crush fierce lions and serpents under your feet!

You will trample down lions and snakes,
fierce lions and poisonous snakes. He will take down all evil and evil doings around us no matter what it is
14 
The Lord says, “I will rescue those who love me.
    I will protect those who trust in my name.

God says, “I will save those who love me
and will protect those who acknowledge me as Lord.

15 
When they call on me, I will answer;
    I will be with them in trouble.
    I will rescue and honor them.

When they call to me, I will answer them;
when they are in trouble, I will be with them.
I will rescue them and honor them.

16 
I will reward them with a long life
    and give them my salvation.”

The lord just wants a relationship with you and you with him to keep a covenant between the both of you bound together to eternity and eternal life in faith in him He will reward them with long life;
and will save them.”

God Our Strength

Isaiah 40:31 New King James Version (NKJV)

31 

But those who wait on the Lord

Shall renew their strength;

They shall mount up with wings like eagles,

They shall run and not be weary,

They shall walk and not faint.

But those believe in God’s word and meditate on it and wait in excitement and anticipation for the Lord that they shall be renewed in strength and new birth living once again

They shall rid themselves of old habits and take to flight and soar like on eagles wings

They shall go forth in joy and exuberance and not become weak or weary as Jesus is at their side

They shall walk in faith and not faint for the Lord God will hold them strong

The lord is our strength and beginning in new life he walks a along side us even when we falter and stray in sin. Believers wait eagerly for Christ’s return as he had promised at death on the cross. He brings us to salvation through his death upon the cross and gives us new lives of no sin and renewals that we may rise above ourselves once again.That we move forward in faith and building of a relationship with him knowing that we are safe and not grow tired and worn within ourselves from the sin of the world and of life that we know we are safe to walk along with him in faith and not fall sick or faint that we shall remain in a new life like a newborn baby just into the world for he has given us new life in him.

In God’s Time

Isaiah 49:8-9

“In an acceptable time I have heard You,

And in the day of salvation I have helped You;

I will preserve You and give You

As a covenant to the people,

To restore the earth,

To cause them to inherit the desolate heritages;

That You may say to the prisoners, ‘Go forth,’

To those who are in darkness, ‘Show yourselves.’

Isaiah 49:8-9 speaks about how when the time comes for us to be saved in the time of his return that those who are ready and go forth with him in the time will be fervent in prayer and studies in God’s word he will hear all the prayers of the people of the land will show us favor and hear the series of help. He will guide us and protect us since we have shown we are accepting of him. He will build a covenant and promise to keep us safe from plagues and disease. That he will restore the land back so that they again may settle in it once again so that we are no longer held in fear and prisoners of the dark and evil of the land and again we remain in the light of good setting us free those who were in the dark will come out into the light and go forth to be free. They will become like sheep who graze upon the land and hills.

Are You Ready To Meet The Savior

Matthew 25:1-13 New Living Translation (NLT)

Parable of the Ten Bridesmaids

25 “Then the Kingdom of Heaven will be like ten bridesmaids[a] who took their lamps and went to meet the bridegroom. 2 Five of them were foolish, and five were wise. 3 The five who were foolish didn’t take enough olive oil for their lamps, 4 but the other five were wise enough to take along extra oil. 5 When the bridegroom was delayed, they all became drowsy and fell asleep.

6 “At midnight they were roused by the shout, ‘Look, the bridegroom is coming! Come out and meet him!’

7 “All the bridesmaids got up and prepared their lamps. 8 Then the five foolish ones asked the others, ‘Please give us some of your oil because our lamps are going out.’

9 “But the others replied, ‘We don’t have enough for all of us. Go to a shop and buy some for yourselves.’

10 “But while they were gone to buy oil, the bridegroom came. Then those who were ready went in with him to the marriage feast, and the door was locked. 11 Later, when the other five bridesmaids returned, they stood outside, calling, ‘Lord! Lord! Open the door for us!’

12 “But he called back, ‘Believe me, I don’t know you!’

13 “So you, too, must keep watch! For you do not know the day or hour of my return.

God gave us life by creating us and sending his son to die on the cross for our salvation knowing that although he wanted acceptance from all his children there would be those that would not accept him and form a relationship with him

Matthew 25:1-13 expresses that as it talks about the second coming of Jesus and how when he returns we as believers should be ready for anytime as we do not know the timing or place of his return however he promises that he will be returning in many different passages Matthew 25 and the parable of the ten bridesmaids is only one passage of the several in God’s word.

Matthew 25:1-13

States that we need to have our oil lamps ready (word of God, the Bible) and we need to be ready to meet the bridegroom (Jesus) that if we procrastinate and aren’t ready and in his word we will miss the opportunity to leave with him and will be left behind. That if we ask to come with him after he already met us him saying to us he doesn’t know us as we were not all worried about meeting with him and having a relationship with him that we lost our opportunity as he was not important in our lives. Though even it through our wrong choice he always has loved us and to him the importance in his life was being number one in our lives and having that relationship. Yet if we did not show when he was ready he saw that he was not our number one in life and he was not important or impressed and we find ourselves lost and left out of a life forever with him. He talks in Matthew 25:1-13 about how he had ten bridesmaids (ten people) whom he had wanted to meet on his second coming and of the ten there were 5 faithful and 5 fools. Those who stayed in the word and formed the relationship and lamps of oil(God’s Word) with him these five knew the signs to accept for vision of signs of Jesus second coming. Those who were fools and did not bother with showing him that he was important to him and form that relationship and had not studied and had use of God’s Word with Christ did not recognize the signs and by the time they had it was too late and they had missed opportunity and were left behind never going when the time was ready and going with Christ.

Jesus wants you to accept him and have a relationship with him and read what his father had taught him and said so that you can fully know who he is and for you to truly be faithful to him showing him that he is not just there as an acquaintance but as your friend and something important in your faith and journey that he may feel proud and fulfilled in the relationship he’s built in us as we are in Christ.

In Christ

In Christ

I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.

Galatians 2:20

This scripture speaks about the full faith in Christ Jesus for as humans we were brought to life because of God whom created Adam and Eve from where mankind was then created from the serpent tempting Adam and Eve in Genesis chapter 3 for in our lives we also become tempted by the serpent himself also creating us sin. Thus bringing in this scripture in Galatians 2 verse 20

I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.

Galatians 2:20 this speaks about humans in that when Christ died we also died to sin not saying that we don’t sin anymore but that sin was removed in our lives because of Christ’s death when he died he gave his life for all of our affliction and sins yet we continue to live only through Christ as he gave his life to save you and me that we no longer live within sin consuming us but through Christ have been saved from any and all wrongs we have done and continue to do when we falter. The life which we live not is in the belief in knowing we are automatically forgiven and saved in that Christ loved us all to remove what the serpent placed in our journeys along our past lives and that we now have belief that we are living for God in being reminded of Christ’s story of how he took all of our sins in death and we died in our old selves to create our new selves knowing that even if we still may sin which everyone will Christ has paid it all for us freeing our bond from the grips of Satan.

That our body is now in the body of Christ that we live for him and have been forgiven. That we now live and walk in faith in the Son of God in complete comfort of the love he has for us and that he gave himself for us to take away all our sin paying out our largest debt that only he God’s Son could pay by his death on the cross when our old self made of the serpent had tempted us and created us to live. Jesus has given his life to create us whole again and giving us this new life in him that we may be the people God had created us to be in his eyes he has given us back freedom and purity through Christ

We As Believers

In Acts 27 verse 22 says

Acts 27:22

And now I urge you to take heart, for there will be no loss of life among you, but only of the ship.

1 Corinthians 3:15

If anyone’s work is burned, he will suffer loss; but he himself will be saved, yet so as through fire.

2 Corinthians 7:9

Now I rejoice, not that you were made sorry, but that your sorrow led to repentance. For you were made sorry in a godly manner, that you might suffer loss from us in nothing.

Philippians 3:7

But what things were gain to me, these I have counted loss for Christ.

In Acts 27 verse 22 says

Acts 27:22

And now I urge you to take heart, for there will be no loss of life among you, but only of the ship.

Take knowledge and heart in knowing that we as believers are blessed and honored in Christ Jesus. When we have loss of things within our lives weather it be loved ones or materialistic there will be no loss of life among us as believers even if there has been loss all that will be of loss is the materialistic and the journey traveled for one day amongst the palms we shall again see those of the ones whom passed once again and we will remain blessed in Christ with eternal life no life shall be lost we have been given the promise of eternal life next to the throne of God in peace.

It is written in God’s wording states in

1 Corinthians 3:15

If anyone’s work is burned, he will suffer loss; but he himself will be saved, yet so as through fire.

So though we may suffer loss of materialistic things we can have faith and peace in knowledge that we are saved and the journey we traveled was only a tiny piece of the best journey we are still yet to travel that of meeting with Jesus face to face and once again our loved ones who await your entry through the golden gates of heaven’s door it’s only a piece of the real journey it’s not full loss like that of materialistic items and it’s only a quest for the biggest blessing being by Gods side.

For he said 2 Corinthians 7:9

Now I rejoice, not that you were made sorry, but that your sorrow led to repentance. For you were made sorry in a godly manner, that you might suffer loss from us in nothing. Otherwise in another way of saying this

yet now I am happy, not because you were made sorry, but because your sorrow led you to repentance. For you became sorrowful as God intended and so were not harmed in any way by us. For God is our guidance, protection, healing, and journey into a peaceful everlasting life as he promised when he saved us. Something to think about that God state’s only his word

Philippians 3:7

But what things were gain to me, these I have counted loss for Christ. Which in another term means- But Christ has shown me that what I once thought was valuable is worthless. Our journey with Christ is the biggest gift and the hardest journey amongst all the journeys and even that which we feel as loss for the bLessing God has promised to us that through him we are saved and given eternal life with him to see once again all our loved ones who we’ve never really lossed. We can take heart in knowing we as believers are saved

Whomever is a believer and follower of Christ has a full filling live of promised living water of abundance. What this means is that our life is always strong and overflowing with God’s love and intimate in his teachings and a everlasting life in him and a story of life, love and faith to share.

John 7:38 says- as the scripture says whoever believes in me, streams of life living water will pour out of his heart.

Jesus covers us intimately in an abundance for his love and life everlasting life and a spot in heaven if we are saved by accepting him as our savior and promises to be with us eternally forever no mater of anything that is a hinderance or where we falter that he never leaves us and is always loving and faithful through it all.

He promises to always be with us and provide us what we need if we ask him for our needs. He will always provide and guide us should we choose to love and accept him and have a relationship with him.

Rev 7:17 because of the lamb, who is in the center of the throne will be thete shephatd and he will guide them to spring of live giving water, and god will wipe every tear from there eyes

Jesus is the lamb of God given an automatic seat in the throne by his father, our Heavenly Father, God and through Jesus life and love and proclaiming him as our savior and having a relationship with him we are also promised automatic entry into a seat in heaven as well. Jesus is our Shepard helping you lead us on the path which is of him and not be strayed yet only if we follow and trust in him. He fills us with all the life he has for us to show and do the right things for others to know him also. He wants us to overflow and boast in his life and he will wipe away all of our tears and worries and take them all from us for us to start fresh in what needs need to be attended to. He is a faithful friend, a savior, a man of truth and honor and so much more and all he wants is trust built and a relationship with him so that he can give you the best of the best in all he sees fit for each one as he sees in whom they are.

Trusting God When You Don’t Understand

Shane Linville

“Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not rely on your own understanding” (Proverbs 3:5).

I know many people who ask God to guarantee their success before trying what he has asked them to do, but that’s not faith.

Faith always requires risk. Faith means you obey even when you don’t understand it.

For example, forgiveness never seems like a good idea before you do it, but it’s one of the greatest tests of your faith. When someone hurts you, it may not seem right to forgive that person. It may not appear just. But forgiveness is always the right choice, regardless of whether or not you can understand it.

Remember when you were a kid and your parents told you to do something that didn’t make sense you? But now you can look back with 20/20 hindsight and understand your parents’ perspective.

That’s how it works with God, too.

Faith is doing what’s right even when it seems absurd. Proverbs 3:5 says, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not rely on your own understanding” . You never know the whole picture, but God does.

The Bible gives us a great example of this in the story of Gideon in Judges 7. Gideon took 300 Israelites to battle 135,000 enemy soldiers. The odds were 450-to-1. God had the soldiers take torches, trumpets, and clay pots—a command I’m sure Gideon thought was ludicrous.

Then, God told Gideon to put the clay pots over the torches so the light couldn’t be seen at night and to go surround the enemy’s camp. God said, “When I tell you to, blow the trumpets, break the pots, and let torchlight suddenly shine out in the darkness. It will look like a huge army is surrounding the camp. It will cause mass confusion, and the enemy soldiers will end up fighting each other.”

Gideon obeyed, even though it didn’t make any sense! The Israelites blew their trumpets, broke their pots, and revealed the light from their torches. The enemy soldiers woke up in shock and started fighting each other instead of the Israelites. Gideon did what God told him to do, and the Israelites won the battle.

Sometimes God tells you to do something that appears foolish—like going into battle facing overwhelming odds. Faith is obeying God even when you don’t understand what he’s asking you to do.

You can’t live by faith without risk. But God knows why he is asking you to do it. You can trust him.

Finding Comfort In Jesus

Job 16:5

But I would strengthen you with my mouth, And the comfort of my lips would relieve your grief.

Saying I could strengthen you with my advice to bring you comfort 

The Lord doesn’t want us in distress he wants us to find Comfort in him to talk to him about all of our needs and trust in his guidance 

Psalm 119:50 New King James Version (NKJV)

50 

This is my comfort in my affliction,

For Your word has given me life.

In my suffering your words bring me comfort of the promise you have given me by giving me life

In his comfort he takes all our suffering as his own to bring us comfort 

The father doesn’t want us to be discomforted or to grieve he wants to bring us comfort through him and for us to release it all at his feet so that we find comfort

Live In Passion Of Christ

Colossians 3:5

Therefore put to death your members which are on the earth: fornication, uncleanness, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry.

So put to death the sinful, earthly things lurking within you. Have nothing to do with sexual immorality, impurity, lust, and evil desires. Don’t be greedy, for a greedy person is an idolater, worshiping the things of this world.

Galatians 5:24

And those who are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.

Those who belong to Christ Jesus have nailed the passions and desires of their sinful nature to his cross and crucified them there.

Colossians 3:23

And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men,

Work willingly at whatever you do, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people

1 Thessalonians 4:5

not in passion of lust, like the Gentiles who do not know God;

You should not use it to please your own desires like the people who do not know God.

in other words live not in sin of man and the world for they lead you down wrong path in the footsteps of evil but live in the passions of Christ laying all sin at the foot of the cross and in work working for him in all passionate ways rather than working for that of man do not use sin to please your own desires like that of man but rather use it for good like those whom know God are passionate in all desires but those who live of they’re own desires are like the people who know no God

I love those who love me, and those who seek me find me. -Proverbs 8:17
