“For He will order His angels to protect you wherever you go. They will hold you up with their hands so you won’t even hurt your foot on a stone.”
Psalm 91:11-12, NLT
Jesus fasted for 40 days and nights, no food and/or water. He was tempted first to turn stone to bread. Famished, Jesus said “It is written: One does not live on bread alone, but on every Word that comes forth from the mouth of God.”
The devil then took Jesus – In the temptation narrative Satan seems to be fulfilling these familiar functions of a transporting angel. It is important that in both cases Satan is transporting Jesus not to hell, but to the “high places” – the first time to the top of the Temple in the Holy City and the second time to the very high mountain.
This is the point that Satan tempted Jesus to jump from the height quoting The Word above!
For He will order His angels to protect you wherever you go. They will hold you up with their hands so you won’t even hurt your foot on a stone.
The guiding here is that Satan who has heard The Word billions of times! attempts to utilize it wrongly to confuse/murky up fact. Yes! Jesus is The Word. Did Jesus know Himself? Yes! We are encouraged to meditate on The Word of God day and night. DO IT! Amen.
God has commanded angels to guard you. God has given angels, not your circumstance, not your situation, the authority to act on your behalf.
God is your refuge and strength. He is your protection and he has commanded angels to come to your aid. Maybe, you too, had a situation like I described that you can’t explain.
As you pray and read Psalm 91 today, proclaim God’s promise that He will send His angels to guard and protect you – to minister to all your needs.
Father, thank You for Your mighty protection. Thank You that whenever we are in danger, we are not alone. Thank You for sending Your angels to help us when we need it most. We trust in You Lord. Thank You for being with us, for guiding us. You are faithful. Help us Lord, to lean on You. Help us to trust in You more, in Jesus’ mighty Name. Amen.
