In my index card system, I have 100 of the best battle verses pulled from the Bible. These battle verses tell us how God can protect us from attacks from our enemies – whether these attacks be from other people or demonic spirits.
As a result of the terrorist attack that hit our country on 9/11, we are all going to be stuck with having to keep our radars up for any further attacks. With the mindset of these radical terrorists, they can strike us anywhere, anytime, and at anyplace.
However, I did find in my battle verse system one rather long, powerful verse that really shows how God the Father can protect His own from heavy attacks from the enemy. I am going to go ahead and give you this verse in this article, as it will help give you the knowledge that God can and will protect His own.
However, to get God’s protection on you, there is something that you have to do on your end – and that something is to “pray it on you.” You have to “plead” the Blood of Jesus in order to get God to protect you, and you have to “pray” some of these other battle verses on you in order to move God to want to protect you.
Here is a very good verse that will show us that sometimes we will not get what we will need because we simply did not ask God for it in the first place.
“Yet you do not have because you do not ask.” (James 4:2)
In other words, if you do not ask God to do something specific for you, then He may not do it for you because you simply did not ask Him to do it for you. Sometimes it is literally that simple!
For those of you who may be afraid of what may be coming down the road – really grab a hold of this powerful battle verse. This verse is very specific in that it will show you that God can give you His maximum protection right in the middle of an actual war zone.
Each Christian should be doing the following now that we have officially entered into both natural and spiritual type warfare:
- Plead the Blood of Jesus over your bodies, your houses, your cars, all of your loved ones who do not know how to Plead the Blood on themselves, and over all your office buildings if you are currently employed.
- Take the following battle verse, quote parts of it back to God the Father, and ask Him to give you the protection that this verse is talking about. Tell Him that you will believe in every part of this verse and that you will have full faith and belief to accept the protection that He will give you as promised by this verse. Tell God that you will stand on the wording that is in this verse and that you will have full faith and belief that He will protect you from these types of attacks in the future.
God loves it when you quote His own Word back to Him. This shows Him that you are doing your homework, that you believe in His Word, and that you are also willing to take a very strong and powerful stand based upon what His Word is telling you to do.
Please notice that some of the words in the following battle verse really do apply to our current situation. It says that God will deliver you from “perilous pestilence.” It says that we are not to be afraid of the terror by night or the arrows that fly by day.
Not to be afraid of the “pestilence that walks in darkness” could help us in the event of any type of biological attack. This verse also says that God will keep any plague from coming near our houses.
It also says, rather graphically, that God will protect you even though a “thousand may fall at your side.” This means that God can protect you right in the middle of an actual attack.
There are plenty of incredible God-stories coming out about how numerous people were directed by God in the two World Trade Centers to get out before the buildings started to crumble. God did protect some of His own right in the middle of that attack, just like this verse says!
This verse also tells us that God will give us His angels to take charge of us.
Now here is one big, whopper, mammoth battle verse straight from God the Father Himself. It is Psalm 91:1-16.
Study the wording in this verse very, very carefully. This verse is giving us powerful revelation from God the Father on how far He can go to protect His own – even in the worse battle case scenario you could possibly imagine.
“He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress; my God, in Him I will trust. Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the perilous pestilence.
He shall cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler. You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, nor of the arrow that flies by day, nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness, nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday.
A thousand may fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand; but it shall not come near you. Only with your eyes shall you look, and see the reward of the wicked. Because you have made the Lord, who is my refuge, even the Most High, your habitation, no evil shall befall you, nor shall any plague come near your dwelling; for He shall give His angels charge over you, to keep you in all your ways.
They shall bear you up in their hands, lest you dash your foot against a stone. You shall tread upon the lion and the cobra, the young lion and the serpent you shall trample underfoot. Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him; I will set him on high, because he has known My name. He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him and honor him. With long life I will satisfy him, and show him My salvation.“
There is only one catch to being able to get this kind of divine protection on you. This kind of divine protection will only be for the people who have truly entered into a personal relationship with God the Father. Notice the following words:
1. “He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.”
The word “dwells” is implying someone who has established a very good, close, intimate, personal relationship with God – someone who lives and walks with God on a daily basis, not just when an emergency presents itself.
He who lives and walks with God and has established a good personal relationship with Him will get the benefit of being able to abide under His shadow – which means that He will then have God’s divine protection on him and his life.
2. The next verse says:
“Because you have made the Lord … your habitation, no evil shall befall you.”
Again, the word “habitation” is implying someone who has established a good, close, personal relationship with the Lord on a daily basis. Live and walk with God in this type of close personal relationship and then no evil will befall you.
3. The next part of the verse says:
“I will set him on high, because he has known My name.”
The phrase “known my name” is also implying someone who has entered into a close personal relationship with God. You cannot really know God unless you have established a good, close, personal relationship with Him.
Establish a good, close, personal relationship with God – and then God will move to set you up on high and out of harm’s way.
4. This verse then ends on a very powerful note:
“With long life I will satisfy him.”
In other words, God will allow some of you to live a long life, protecting you from a lot of the evil of this world if you will truly enter into a close, personal relationship with Him.
This incredible battle verse really does capture the protection that we all need to get from God the Father, especially with the possibility that our landscapes may have forever changed with the events of 9/11/01.
