A Christian’s Assurance in the Face of Crisis
Galatians 1:3-4 KJV
Grace be to you and peace from God the Father, and from our Lord Jesus Christ, Who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father:
2 Samuel 24:25 NKJV
And David built there an altar to the LORD, and offered burnt offerings and peace offerings. So the LORD heeded the prayers for the land, and the plague was withdrawn from Israel.
Christ Jesus has been offered on behalf of the Body of Christ. He has offered Himself without spot to God to cleanse us from our sins which delivers us from this present evil world. Christ’s death was the full payment for all our sins. This was the propitiation for our sins. God looks upon us in mercy and chooses to watch over us and protect us as His own. See 1 Corinthians 6:19-20
The Blood of Jesus Christ has established a New Covenant based upon better promises. The New Covenant is far better than the Old Testament. If God protected those in the ancient times under the Old Covenant, then most assuredly He will see to it that you are safe. See Matthew 11:11; Hebrews 7:22; 8:6.
Remember that God the Father loves you the way He loves Jesus. Think about it. God would willingly and joyfully do for you whatever He would have done for Jesus if He was here on earth. Why? Because as He is so are we in this world. You are the Body of Christ. See John 17:23; 1 John 4:16-18; 1 Corinthians 6:15-17; Colossians 1:24.
You are not an ordinary person. See 1 Peter 2:9; 1 Corinthians 6:1-3. You have a privileged place in God. Get it straight: You are special to God. He considers you a special envoy and an ambassador of the kingdom of God. You are entitled to the protection of angels. See 2 Corinthians 5:20.
Psalms 91:11-13 NKJV
For he shall give his angels charge over thee,
to keep thee in all thy ways.
They shall bear thee up in their hands,
lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.
Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder:
the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet.
Psalms 34:7 NKJV
The angel of the LORD encampeth
round about them that fear him, and delivereth them.
God has assigned His angels to protect you and to preserve in these times. Fret not, God is faithful, He won’t let you down. He preserved Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego. He plagued Pharaoh and his family because of Abraham and Sarah. He closed the wombs of everyone in Abimelech’s because of them too. You are the seed of Abraham. So you can be rest assured that God will preserve you and deal with all those who come against you. Selah
Let the following words comfort your heart:
Isaiah 41:10-13 KJV
Fear thou not; for I am with thee:
be not dismayed; for I am thy God:
I will strengthen thee;
yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.
Behold, all they that were incensed against thee shall be ashamed and confounded:
they shall be as nothing; and they that strive with thee shall perish.
Thou shalt seek them, and shalt not find them, even them that contended with thee:
they that war against thee shall be as nothing, and as a thing of nought.
For I the LORD thy God will hold thy right hand,
saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee.
Rest in the Lord. He will protect you, preserve you and cover you at all times from the evils of these last days. Not one of your hairs will perish. Trust God! He has been doing this for a very long time. Selah
