Promises of protection.

This world is becoming a frightening place to live, specially in some places more than others.  We surely need promises now to help us realize how much God cares and  takes care of us.  Here are some very important promises from Scripture that will give us hope.

John 10:10  "The thief does not come except to steal, kill and destroy.  I have come that they may have life and that they may have it more abundantly."

Psalm 97:10  "The Lord.....guards the lives of His faithful ones."

Psalm 91:9-11  "Because thou hast made the Lord, which is my refuge, even the Most High thy habitation;  there shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.  For He shall give His angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.

Psalm 32:7  "You are my hiding place;  You shall preserve me from trouble."

Psalm 121:7,8  "The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil: He shall preserve thy soul.  The Lord shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore."

Psalm 91:1-7  "He that dwelleth in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.  I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress; my God, in Him will I trust .  Surely He will deliver thee from the snare of the fowler. and from the noissome pestilence.  He shall cover thee with His feathers, and under His wings shalt thou trust;  His truth shall be thy shield and buckler.  Thou shalt not be afraid of the terror by night; not for the arrow that flyeth by day; nor for the pestilence that walketh in the darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.  A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand, but it shall not come nigh to thee."

After reading these promises, there is no need for us to be afraid, is there?  We are safe in His keeping and we need have no worries.  We just need to trust Him in all things.  Grandma Joan
