Your Divine Security Detail

‘The angel of the Lord encamps all around those who fear Him, and delivers them.’ Psalm 34:7 NKJV

Just as a president or a prime minister are constantly surrounded by security guards, as a redeemed child of God you are surrounded by angels. You may not be able to see the president’s or prime minister’s security detail, but just let someone make a threatening move and trained guards instantly form a protective shield around them.

Dr James McConnell, founder of Whitewell Metropolitan Tabernacle in Belfast, Northern Ireland, was preaching one night during the ‘Troubles’, when a paramilitary leader with a gun came into the church to kill him. The man’s wife had become a Christian and her life was so radically changed that he hardly recognised her. The man only took a few steps up the aisle when he stopped dead in his tracks, turned, and ran out of the church. On later becoming a Christian, the man testified that he’d seen two big angels standing on either side of Pastor McConnell!

When Paul’s ship encountered a storm and everyone thought they were going to perish, Paul announced: ‘There stood by me this night an angel of the God to whom I belong and whom I serve, saying, “Do not be afraid”… take heart… for I believe God that it will be just as it was told me.’ (Acts 27:23–25 NKJV) Today, you have a divine security detail watching over you.
