“Because he loves me,” says the LORD, “I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges My name.” (Psalm 91:14)
Dear friend, today’s promise of God is from Psalm 91:14, “Because he loves me,” says the LORD, “I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.” This is such a wonderful promise because the Lord says, “When you acknowledge My Name, I will rescue you and I will protect you.” This happened to me and my family a few years back.
We wanted to attend a religious meeting in Bangalore. All my cousins and relatives around 15 of us went in three cars to attend the meeting. At that time there was lot of problems in Bangalore. There were riots and people were stopping the traffic that was coming into Bangalore. They didn’t want us to attend the meeting.
Many people told us not to go the meeting in such a time as that, but we were led to go the meeting and listen to the Word of God. Just as we reached Bangalore, they stopped all our cars and began to even puncture the cars. So we were frightened at that time. But even then, we wanted to acknowledge the Lord. We determined in our hearts that we will stand strong for Him. There were people waiting with cans to burn down our cars. But because we acknowledged the Lord, He protected us and saved us. Amidst the crowd there was a person who knew my father and so we were allowed to go. Yes, that’s how the Lord protected us. We acknowledged Him even though we were scared and fearful. Miraculously, the Lord sent help and protected us. The Bible says in Psalm 91:7, “A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you.” Nothing will come near you. You might even be having the fear to live in this world, you might be surrounded by enemies, but the Lord says nothing will touch you.
Thank You for Your protection on my life. Please come with me wherever I go. Heal me from all my sicknesses. Deliver me from the snares of the devil. Help me to always acknowledge You and be rescued.
In Jesus’ precious name, I pray. Amen.
