Keeping Us From Evil
I’ve been thinking about Psalm 121:7-8, which says, “The LORD shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul. The LORD shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore.”
This has been comforting to me because frankly my mind is conjuring up all kinds of evil that could be perpetrated against Bible believing Christians if the godless progressive politicians gain control of America.
I know that our God is still in control and that there are still a few scenarios in play regarding the election that could offer a less problematic condition for constitutional citizens.
The thought has also occurred to me that, generally speaking, God’s wisdom may want us to learn a greater dependence on His providence than reliance on having a friend in the White House.
It is kinda hard to read through Revelation 13 and not conclude that American patriotism must be absence if the whole world is wondering after the Beast, who has global economic control of our once free American citizenry.
This is why I have been thinking about Psalm 121:7-8, because my mind — left to itself and not fixed on the Lord (Isaiah 26:3) — is bound to keep the list of potential evil ahead growing, but when the Lord promises to preserve our life despite the evil around, it no longer matters what kind of evil we’ll have to deal with.
The promise even states “preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth” so that kind of does away with any reason to fear having to shrink back from normal day by day activities, even if it is as did Daniel not forsaking the pattern of prayer he was accustomed to. We may find that the days ahead will be marked by God’s supernatural protection of His saints despite the increase of evil.
So, if you are finding yourself, like me, wondering about the future, contemplate Psalm 121:7-8, and know that “The LORD shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul. The LORD shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore.”
