The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear him, and he delivers them. Psalm 34:7
Many times, in Israel’s history they sensed the protection of God around them. There was a strong realization God was encamped around them and there was an encouragement God was protecting them from the dangers of their enemies.
The same promise is here for us today as the people of God. He encamps around those who look to Him. This promise means in our state of fear to recall the truth God is here with us. It means when tempted to grow anxious we must remember God is with us. His presence brings not a portion of His goodness but all He has.
Imagine when fear tries to overcome our mind all we know is God’s angels are surrounding us. We know not because we see but because God’s promises are true, and we rely not on what our emotions may be telling us but convinced in faith God is standing with us. Often, we allow fear to dictate to us how we walk through the trials of life. Convinced of truth we can be protected with His words.
Today in the Workplace
When troubles are surrounding you, come back to the verse and allow its truth to surround you.
