Just open your eyes, and see how the wicked are punished. If you make the Lord your refuge, if you make the Most High your shelter, no evil will conquer you; no plague will come near your home. For he will order his angels to protect you wherever you go. They will hold you up with their hands so you won't even hurt your foot on a stone. You will trample upon lions and cobras; you will crush fierce lions and serpents under your feet! The Lord says, I will rescue those who love me. I will protect those who trust in my name. When they call on me, I will answer; I will be with them in trouble. I will rescue and honor them. I will reward them with a long life and give them my salvation. Psalms 91:8-16 NLT
Watch and wait dear friend. The wicked will meet their fate if they do not repent. Inevitably, their evil conduct will end in utter destruction. Wickedness can never lead to a good end. Doing what is wrong will never lead to the right place. Doing what is right will never lead to the wrong place. Choosing to accept and obey the Most High (El-Elyon in Hebrew) is the way to live. God will always provide for and protect the interest of His children. The revenue of His resources never recede. The vigor of His virtue never varies. The prowess of His power never perishes. The wisdom of His Word never wanes. The wise man will link his life with the Lordship of Jesus Christ! The foolish man will ignore Him at the expense of his life, his children's lives, and eternity. Let others laugh and scoff at us as God's children! Their fate is impending. Ours is sound, safe, and secure in the Savior!! Although the world is under an evil regime, we who are God's children are not under Satan's control. We are free from the slavery of sin. We are royal in our lineage. We have been adopted into the family of God! Our inheritance is incomparable. We have angels as our escorts in life. For the angel of the Lord is a guard; he surrounds and defends all who fear him. Psalms 34:7NLT Therefore, angels are only servants, spirits sent to care for people who will inherit salvation. Hebrews 1:14 NLT God has dispatched angelic protection over His children. Even Satan knows this fact. In Matthew 4:5-7, and Luke 4:9-12, on the mount of temptation, he quoted Psalm 91:11-12 to Jesus in an attempt to twist its application and get Jesus to jump off the highest point of the Temple. Satan has always twisted God's Word to get people to be deceived. We must understand it's proper text, context, and application. For example: we can't claim the promise of angelic protection, jump off of the Empire State Building in New York, and expect to live. That is utter foolishness. On the other hand, we can live life with the confident assurance that God is with us and His angels are guarding us. We must believe and proclaim that! Finally, God promises to rescue those who love Him and honor His name! He declares the blessing of long life to those who honor and fear Him! Not only is this applicable in the current human world, but eternal life in the coming new heaven and earth!! Amen!!
