TOPIC: God’s Eternal, Unshakable Word
And we desire that each one of you show the same diligence to the full assurance of hope until the end, that you do not become sluggish, but imitate those who through faith and patience inherit the promises. – Hebrews 6:11–12
The Lord has put a now word in my heart for the times we are living in, and that word is “protection.” I want to show you from the Bible what Jesus died to give you in the area of protection. Even as I write this book, the Lord is commissioning me to preach strongly from Psalm 91 so that you can walk in His divine protection in these last days. Psalm 91 has just sixteen verses, but is loaded with many potent promises that we can stand upon.
Unfortunately, when we are faced with problems, whether it is a sickness, an accident, or any kind of trouble, many of us don’t lay hold of and claim the Lord’s deliverance found in His Word. Yet, when you do hold on to God’s Word for deliverance, the devil is so afraid that the Word will become firmly rooted in your heart. That is why he will come immediately to try to steal the Word from your heart. He will point to your outward circumstances and taunt you with thoughts such as, “Look, your child is still sick—where is God now? Where is the reality of Psalm 91?” At that very moment, you are presented with a choice. You can either back away from God’s Word and agree with the enemy, or you can stand in faith and continue to believe His promises.
Even as the Lord put it on my heart to write this book on divine protection, He told me that there are people reading this who might think, I have claimed the promises in Psalm 91 before and it didn’t work. My dear friend, I want to encourage you to hold on to His Word. Whatever your experience has been, the Word of God stands eternal and unshakable. If you have not experienced full protection in the past, I believe that as you hold on to His Word and persevere in faith, you will walk more and more in the Lord’s total protection.
