We live in dangerous times. A time in which a person could be attacked by terrorists while watching a concert or sipping a latte in his favorite cafe. A time in which an epidemic from one country could spread to another through a single traveler. A time in which earthquakes, floods, and other calamities seem to be happening all too often.
Now, imagine living life without the paralyzing fear of these things. My friend, that is God’s desire for you today. Though the perils that plague us in this day and age are certainly real, even greater is the reality that you can live fearlessly and protected.
There is a beautiful verse in Psalm 91, which promises that he who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. This is a powerful promise of the Lord’s protection over our lives.
God has given us in this psalm a powerful prayer of protection, through which we and our families can find comfort, as well as safety and deliverance from every known or unknown danger and harm.
