So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. All who rage against you will surely be ashamed and disgraced.
He is Our Protection
But an evil spirit from the Lord came on Saul as he was sitting in his house with his spear in his hand. While David was playing the lyre, Saul tried to pin him to the wall with his spear, but David eluded him as Saul drove the spear into the wall. That night David made good his escape.
1 Samuel 19:9-10
Saul’s jealousy affected his way of thinking and he became obsessed with seeking to kill David. When we keep dwelling on negative or impure thoughts, it will ultimately produce bad fruit. The word says that we have to “cast down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ.” 2 Corinthians 10:5
There was once a general manager who, because of his jealousy, treated a newly recruited manager very badly. He removed the manager from his allocated office and put his own staff in the room. The manager gave the situation to the Lord and was soon returned to his rightful office by management who recognised the injustice. The general manager’s jealousy, however, soon turned to fear and he subsequently left the company, creating an opening for the new recruit to become the new general manager.
The Lord’s protection is always on His people and He will never let them down. If you are struggling with a difficult situation at your workplace or at home, give it to the Lord because He is faithful to release you from the manipulations of those who are bound by jealousy and bitterness in their hearts.
I thank You, Lord, that no weapon fashioned against me will stand and that You will refute every tongue that seeks to accuse me. Amen.
God bless you.
Your obedient servants in Christ,
Theo and Manju
