“He (God) allowed no man to do them wrong; yes, He reproved kings for their sakes,
22 Saying, Touch not My anointed, and do My prophets no harm.”
Dear people of God, a friend of mine told me today how his cousin once said the only reason he was paying school fees for his daughter was because she was his biological child.
His reason for making this statement was because this daughter, a born-again Christian, had been admonishing him to give up alcohol and some other vices in his life and he was offended.
By God’s grace, I have learned that as long as you have God as your Source and Provider, no human being can threaten you. You can see this clearly from today’s lead Holy Bible text above.
When someone has made up his mind to follow Jesus Christ, no evil can successfully overwhelm him. Notice I said no evil can overwhelm the person. I did not say no evil can come to the person because satan will always try, but no evil can overwhelm the person.
Of course, such person who knows his authority in Christ Jesus will always exercise it and overcome all evil in his life.
It is for this reason I know that any pastor who uses police or security escort to move about is not a genuine man of God. What level of protection can a human being give you when he has his limitations?
What are you scared of that makes you have need for personal security?
If you are truly serving God, His angels in their millions and billions are always available to protect you from all evil. This is what the Lord Jesus Christ alluded to in His directive to Apostle Peter in Matthew 26:52-53, “Then Jesus said to him, Put your sword back into its place, for all who draw the sword will die by the sword.
53 Do you suppose that I cannot appeal to My Father, and He will immediately provide Me with more than twelve legions [more than 80,000] of angels?”
How many human beings can have 80,000 people to protect them on this earth? Can they afford to pay the people or take care of them?
However, these same legion of angels are at the disposal of a genuine child of God when danger arises because God has said He will never leave us or abandon us – Hebrews 13:5-6.
A parent who is fortunate to have a God-fearing child in this untoward generation that is able to look him in the face to tell him the truth according to the Word of God in the Holy Bible should count himself blessed of God.
Such a person rather than threaten the child should worshipfully praise and thank God for giving him such blessing. If you threaten the child and carry out such threat, I can assure you that God Almighty will rise immediately to the aid of that child against such parent.
Some occultic people or ritualists also engage at times in threatening children of God. I feel so sorry for them because they are coming towards a moving train that would utterly crush them unless they repent and retrace their steps immediately.
Dear people of God, there is great beauty and joy in following the Lord Jesus sincerely in a life of holiness and righteousness. This is because satan and his agents cannot harm you once you are in Christ and remain in Him sincerely.
If you are yet to take a firm decision to follow and trust the Lord Jesus sincerely, today and now is that moment, for tomorrow may be too late.
May the good Lord bless you as you heed His Word today, act on it and share with others in Jesus’ Mighty Name, Amen.
