Standing On The Promises Of God, Part V
A thousand may fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand; but it shall not come near you. Only with your eyes shall you look, and see the reward of the wicked. Psalm 91:7,8
Literally thousands are falling dead around us every day from disease, war, famine, accidents and storms and our life is in God's hands at all times! Men are fainting from fear because of all things coming upon the world but God said it shall not come near us!
God's word to us is to keep our eyes straight ahead on the task at hand, walking the narrow road and seeing the wages of sin being given out to those who are wicked and disobedient to His law. We are no longer of this world if we are truly born again and seated with Christ in the heavenlies. As new creations in Christ we are no longer subject to the judgments that are falling upon the world, being ambassadors and citizens of the Kingdom of God.
Although we are a supernatural race free from the confines of time and space we live in the world but we are not of this world, and we must at all times stay under the shadow of God's protection abiding in His presence and in constant communion with Him!
Keep me as the apple (center of His eye) of Your eye; hide me under the shadow of Your wings, from the wicked who oppress me, from my deadly enemies who surround me. Psalm 17:8,9
Your servant in Christ, Tim Laughlin
