SURROUNDED BY THE HEDGE!;
(God’s Hedge Of Protection Surrounds You!)
TO THE BIBLE Job 1:10 AMPC
“Have You not put a hedge about him and his house and all that he has, on every side? You have conferred prosperity and happiness upon him in the work of his hands, and his possessions have increased in the land.”
Job was a great man who loved God and lived righteously before Him. He had plenty of possessions and a large household all because God blessed him. But unknown to Job, Satan tried many times to attack him but was unsuccessful. One day, Satan came into God’s presence and said of Job: “You have always protected him and his home and his property from all harm. You have prospered everything he does—look how rich he is! No wonder he ‘worships’ you!” (Job 1:10 TLB). That hedge of protection placed by God around Job repelled satan’s attacks every day till Job unknowingly broke it through his wrong words of fear and doubt (Job 1:13-22 and 3:25-26)
Like Job, you’re surrounded with a hedge of God’s protection, including everything that concerns you; that’s why Satan can’t touch you! It’s a spiritual force-field, and it shields you from every attack of the enemy. Don’t use the language of doubt and fear; otherwise, you could break that force-field. Only say what God’s Word says about you. Doing this and praying in other tongues will help strengthen, raise and expand that force-field around you.
Whenever you feel pressure from the enemy, that’s not the time to cry or cower; that’s the time to speak God’s Word and pray in other tongues fervently! At such moments, you don’t just speak in tongues for five minutes and quit; increase your ‘firepower!’ Power up, and strengthen that force-field! And when you do, nothing hatched out of hell will be able to withstand or defeat you.
David’s Song of Praise
22 David sang to the LORD the words of this song when the LORD delivered him from the hand of all his enemies and from the hand of Saul.
2 He said: “The LORD is my rock, my fortress, and my deliverer;
3 my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge,
my shield and the horn of my salvation.
He is my stronghold, my refuge, and my savior—
from violent people you save me.
4 “I called to the LORD, who is worthy of praise,
and have been saved from my enemies.
The LORD the Strength of His People
A Song of Ascents.
Those who trust in the LORD
Are like Mount Zion,
Which cannot be moved, but abides forever.
2 As the mountains surround Jerusalem,
So the LORD surrounds His people
From this time forth and forever.
1 Peter 5:8-9
8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.
9 Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world.
Dear Lord Jesus, thank you for the powerful hedge of protection that Surrounds me today. Every time I talk the Word and speak in tongues, I increase its perimeter and activate its repelling force against Satan and his demons. Satan flees in terror, even now, as I speak under the anointing of the Holy Spirit.
DAILY BIBLE READING
John 13:31-14:1-14, 2 Kings 23-25
1 Corinthians 14:1-9, Proverbs 24
Talk in tongues until the power of God inundates your whole being and saturates the entire environment. You might start slowly, but as you continue, the spiritual ‘force-field’ around you gets wider and wider, driving the enemy further away.
