Safety in God’s Presence

Read: Psalm 91:1-16

God provides safety and security to His people when they travel through unforeseen situations. God is all-knowing and sees that His people are protected from danger. God is our Shield, our Refuge and Fortress. In medieval times, a fortress was built to protect the city from being invaded by other enemies. When arrows or cannon balls were shot through, the fortress took their impact, protecting the people inside the city. As God is our Fortress, He will block the stray arrows thrown at us by the enemy (Ps. 91:5). Like a mother hen that protects her chicks under her wings, God will cover you with His wings (Ps. 91:4).

Guarding Your Heart

Read: Proverbs 4:23

In this world there are a lot of distractions. It is hard for a believer to guard his heart from sinning. There might be some tough choices that we have to make in order to prevent from falling into the devil’s trap. If we compromise once, it is easy to fall into sin constantly. Just like a little yeast contaminates the whole batch of dough, so is sin (Gal. 5:9). A man might be tempted to see forbidden content on the internet. If he gives in to this temptation, he becomes addicted to pornography. Through the guidance and help of the Holy Spirit, a believer is able to overcome the enemy. The wisdom of God warns us from taking the wrong path. God’s wisdom can be found by reading His Word daily.
