My dearly beloved in Christ, I greet and bless you all in the Name of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. The auspicious word of God that comes to you for today is taken from the book of Psalms 121:7, “The LORD shall preserve you from all evil; He shall preserve your soul.”
We have just entered the New Year and slowly trying to settle ourselves. God will be with you in your undertakings. So do not worry as to how the New Year is going to be but always depend on the Lord Almighty and He will lead you in a mighty manner. In this world, we have to face many afflictions, problems and troubles in our lives especially in the surrounding place where we live in our neighbourhood, in our workplace, in our ministry, and in our business especially in our families. Many dangerous things surround us because satan is going about as a roaring lion to devour us. He is only looking out for a chance to trap people who come his way.
But from today, God says, that He will preserve you from all kinds of horrible people and every form of horror that strikes you every now and then. God will protect you from the evil hands of the people and also the evil work of the satan. God will nullify all their plans. He will not allow all their plans to materialize against your life. As a result, God will safeguard you from all the evil thoughts and works of the evil one.
What must you do for the Lord to safeguard you from the works of the evil one? You must surrender your life to Him. And tell him about your difficult situations. Tell Him that there are many people who are waiting to attack you from all corners. And request Him to protect you from the hands of those wicked and cruel people. Share with God all your problems daily and you shall be comforted. He has said, “Come unto me all ye that are weary and heavy laden, I will give you rest.” Tell God that there are many people who confront you, though they often pretend to be good. Say “Lord You alone can protect and redeem me from their hands, I surrender my life to you. Save me from their cruel and wicked plots.”
The Bible says, “When a man’s ways please the Lord, he makes even his enemies to be at peace with him.” Therefore when you surrender your life to God He will change the attitude of your enemies and make them come back to you in friendly terms.
In the past, many of you could have suffered because of the power of the witchcraft, sorcery and divination that had been cast upon you by your enemies. But the Lord will even protect you from such evil deeds that had been cast upon you due to jealousy or revenge by your own people. God will protect you in such a way that no evil will befall you. Some of you are thinking that there is no one to redeem you from out of all your struggles. Today God will deliver you. Whether you are in the jail or in the deep sea, or in the trap of huge debts, or from some kind of wrong relationship that had been forced upon you in a secret manner, whatever it may be God will redeem you, from all harm and danger. God will not only redeem you from all such hurdles but also save your soul. Not only your body but also your soul will be protected by God. He will save your soul from falling into sin and from being filled with grief. So, we shall bow before the Lord who will not only protect you but also comfort you by His word. Submit yourself to the Lord, your family to the Lord, and your business and even your ministry in the hands of God. Then the Lord will do great things for you.
Prayer: Dear Lord, we thank You. Lord you who keep us safe from all the troubles that surround us, and also you who saves our soul from destruction. Whatever disaster that people may cause to us, we pray that God will protect and safeguard us from all such problems which are thrust upon us. We submit ourselves, our family, our business, and our ministry, and everything that causes harm to us, in your precious hands. Keep us from all harm and danger, disease, and famine and pestilence.
