I am a friend of God's. It's the epitome of "friend's with benefits".
Because I have become friends with God through my relationship with His Son Jesus Christ, I live free from fear and condemnation (John 5:24).
I also live in a home that enjoys peace and angelic protection.
Psalms 91:9-12 (AMP) - Because you have made the Lord your refuge, and the Most High your dwelling place, 10 There shall no evil befall you, nor any plague or calamity come near your tent.11 For He will give His angels [especial] charge over you to accompany and defend and preserve you in all your ways [of obedience and service]. 12 They shall bear you up on their hands, lest you dash your foot against a stone.
I believe this passage this morning as much as I believe any other verses from the Word.
I have felt the protection of angels. I have sensed them surrounding me. I know beyond doubt that they have rescued me at times, and have probably been doing that for as long as I can remember. I have even caught glimpses of them. I also believe some have shown themselves to me in human form.
All of this is trustworthy to believe as it is corroborrated in God's Word.
It's easy to dispute this or deny it, or even write me off as a crackpot, as long as you have no such knowledge or experience.
I have the inner witness of the Holy Spirit that speaks to me and shows me Truth (Rom. 8:16).
You may dispute or disagree all you like.
I know better. I know it's real. I know it works.
You can know that too if you choose.
Jesus never fails.
Still Keepin' it Real,
