“The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear him, and he delivers them.”
Psalm 34: 7
Did you know God has assigned angels to us? Now is that cool or what? And not only that, but they are “encamped” around us! Wow.
I have never seen an angel, but it is amazing to think about isn’t it? Why does God do this?
I believe He has placed this verse in the Psalms in order to encourage us! This is one of those verses that God gives us to say, “I’ve got your back!” In other words, He is showing his love and concern for us. Indeed, He is protecting us!!
And this verse continues with, He delivers us. Another way of looking at this verse, is that God sees everything we face and go through, He is right there, and He will take us through to the other side.
The terrible things that happen, do not last forever! He will make a way for us! Remember Israel standing at the Red Sea? They thought there was no way out…..but God…….Hallelujah!! Do I hear an amen? Praise You Lord God.
Thank you Heavenly Father, for this verse and so many others that encourage us, and lift us up, and beyond whatever we are facing! Continue to protect us and deliver us, according to Your will. Amen.
