The Promise Of God’s Protection

One of the ways that God shows His love for us are his many promises to keep us from harm, from loneliness, from evil, from our enemies. Let’s go through just a few of these now:

Isaiah 41:10 “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”

Isaiah 59:1 “Surely the arm of the Lord is not too short to save, nor His ear too dull to hear,”

Matthew 10:29-30 “Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground outside your Father’s care. And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. So don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.”

Many of the prayers and psalms in the Bible remember God’s promises of protection and safety. Here are a few of them:

In the first book of Samuel, Hannah’s prayer shows the faithfulness of God to those who are faithful to Him. In 1 Sam 2:9 says: “He will guard the feet of his faithful servants, but the wicked will be silenced in the place of darkness.”

Psalm 4:8 “In peace I will lie down and sleep, for you alone, Lord, make me dwell in safety.

Psalm 91:1-2 “Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and fortress, my God, in whom I trust.”

With so many promises that God will keep us safe, protect us, and never leave us, it’s no surprise that His people have many stories of His protection at work in their lives. One sister relates that she felt an urge to carry her young child in her arms, and at that time she found he was close to swallowing a small ball. A brother in the faith told me a story that he had once been told that he wasn’t bothered as he was passing a shady area because he always had big men following him around – even when he usually walked there alone!

Here’s one of my own: as a child I was once helping to push a car that the adults were trying to get started. Okay, maybe not really helping, just pushing along and enjoying the feeling of seeming to help. Just when the car started, I stopped, and took a step back and to the right – right into the path of an incoming car on the opposite lane. Just moments before I would have been hit, someone strong grabbed my arm and pulled me out of the path of the other vehicle. To this day, I can’t recall the face of that man, but I believe he was God’s way to keep me safe from harm.

What are your personal stories of God’s protection and salvation? Feel free to share them here, so that others may be blessed by the way that God has blessed your life.

My story goes as such; I was but a young man and was with my mom and dad heading west out of Edmonton. I was sleeping in the back buckled up in the middle seat mom was driving and dad was the passenger .the next thing I was to remember I was beside the ambulance and mom and dad were hurt my mother was thrown 500 feet of the opposite side of the Hwy 16 a dad was wearing his belt and stayed in the car witch just flipped out of no where for no reason still no explanation as to why, I was thrown threw the ruff of the car and landed sitting on my bum legs crossed and hands on my legs no cuts no bruises! Not a thing. Eye witness report confirmed I did go threw the roof, but no hole . My dad trapped in the card kicked out the back window to try and save me but a witness stopped and ran over to me moving me before a car hit me .A couple years down the road my dad past away from cancer, and three years after that I lost my mom. and both sides of moms and dads family didn't take me in I was all alone . the next 19 Years I walked alone not knowing why I was still here. When I was 25 I had a daughter and began to feel the good, gods love and some understanding as to why I was all alone.

Another few years down the road I went to bed.It starts out its a dream and there is a bird moving changing and very evil. Then all the sudden the black demon with red eyes, wings that spanned 50 feet and arms the size of trees. I remember being scared and saying to the beast who just stared at me "just stay the fuck away from me." I was ready to fight and die but nothing happened. After a bit he was gone, a little girl was there and said "thanks to me for saving me." I said "no problem, I have a daughter of my own but don't leave me." Then I remember hearing a voice in a room with no doors. It said come on in! Jesus appeared before we walked threw the wall. I saw two doors then golden gates as far as the eye could see. We were walking towards them. I am aware this is a dream. When we get to the doors, they open I could here people,, music and wind! They where all having a party, it was so inviting and peaceful . The next thing I knew I was walking on the beach with the father myself on the right hand side . We talked. The next thing I knew I hear "Ian" I look back too see my mom and dad. I ran to them and grabbed them. "I haven't seem you fuckers in years" I said. I pulled them both in towards my chest, holding them tight, we fell to the water.

Then: I awoke in my bed . Still to this day I have no idea why life went the way it did for me, but I never looked at my story with sadness. I always told people do not feel sad, but take it as I do, inspirational!

Take my words of strength and do what is right in the world! Do more for others then yourself. My story has way more to it, I am not going to tell all, but know this! GOD THE FATHER does hear us, he does watch over us, and there is a purpose for all of us,after this life! Since my experience in heaven, I don't know what the father said to me. I am not allowed to remember that part. I no longer fear evil. I am what god made me a soldier. His solider and he needs that from all of us. Effort, not just prayers. Our blood and sweat as well. We the good have to stick together, stand up against evil. Be good to one another. Do onto others as they do onto us. I hope my words ring loud and far.I hope someone will stand with me. Do what is right. Alone we are weak, out numbered. Together we can move mountains. It's a lonely road to walk the good path, trust me I know still it is the right path and heaven is the best reward out there

. As we are called upon after this to fight in his army when the end of days comes as this is the only side that is worth it. well for now stay good and keep the faith and may the fource be with you.

His protection around me/us has been phenomenal. Many things have happened over the years that some wouldn't believe.

One time we were coming down a curvy mountain and a car came around the turn, going up the mountain. He was halfway across the center lane on our side of the road in a sharp turn. We had no reaction time and if we would have had reaction time, we wouldnt have had anywhere to escape to, except through the guardrail and down the side of a VERY steep mountain. Our two vehicles passed through each other and everything in our environment turned from color to black and white for a blink of an eye.This happened on the VA side of the mountain near Rawley Springs VA.

This also happened two more times on different roads in two different states. The only difference on those is everything stayed in color. One of those we witnessed at an intersection in Pigeon Forge Tn. The two cars went through each other at the light we were waiting at. If they would have hit each other then they would have hit us too.

If God promises protection to his obedient children who love Him in sincerity (He says those who really love Him follow His commands), then it is true. Let God be true and every man a liar. If you love your good Father then you trust Him to protect you, and He will. If you don't have total faith that He will protect you, then you leave yourself open. And little children have their gaurdian angels, Jesus says their angels behold the face of God in Heaven. Just because someone disagrees with His promise of protection doesn't make His word any less true. That person who doubts His word needs to check their hardened heart that is full of doubt. God has miraculously saved me and my father multiples times.

God is faithful always even when we are faithless and can only do good. With the psalms, books of prophets fulfilled upon Jesus Christ's fulfillment of prophesy on earth, and the law being vanished and in its place the Grace of perfect pure divine love, that is love without punishment and harm or injury, I agree, we are so as St Paul stated, lavishly bless.

Thank you our Lord God Almighty in the name of only begotten Son Lord Jesus Christ.

HI....I felt like reading testimonies ofor God protecting people and when I read the last one...reply of sedic64...I was suddenly reminded of just yesterday morning....an incident where I had to say to myself that God is truEly awesome and amazing amongst so many things I can say in praise and honour to God.Yesterday morning( and there were a few such occasions in the past),on way to George....I realised that from time to time.... in a space of one hour...I actually fell asleep for brief moments.Funny enough...but can only have been God at work to ensure my and other people's safety....I was asleep and when I woke up so for a few times...I have passed car,lorries and abt two trucks.That brings me to a point...it was God who must have kept the wheel and woken me...cos I did not swerve. I slept in George for an hour and felt better on my way back to Cpt.God is awesome.....God also kept me safe from an horrific accident that could have happened where on my way to Langebaan in Cape Town one night to go there for work purposes.....I just missed by a split second a car who was travelling at a great speed and I at 120km/h.......missed by just one last nick of a pull away.......from the car that was in my Lane with brights on for a head on collision.God is awesome.My believe...sometimes we get into a situation (even if we are to take care and don't do by the book and so we find ourselves tired behind the wheel) where truely God gets working to keep us safe.I can and by the grace of God...will put my testimony of that incident and protection of God in an accident situation some time (testimony where I woke up behind wheel...dream woke me up)....God is awesome and amazing.I give honour to God...I also humbly ask....pls keep me in your prayers

I am so thankful to God for bringing my family and I safely home. We were travelling to Durban from Port Elizabeth on 29 April. We were almost coming to Mooi River plaza when we could see huge fires. Police guided us onto another road. There was a truck strike. If we did not make a stop earlier on then we with have been caught in between the burning trucks. God is good.
