GOD’S SAFETY PROCEDURE (God’s Principle For Protection)
👤 Pastor Chris Oyakhilome;
📖 TO THE BIBLE
Psalm 121:3-7 CEV “The LORD is your protector, and he won’t go to sleep or let you stumble. The protector of Israel doesn’t doze or ever get drowsy. The LORD is your protector, there at your right side to shade you from the sun. You won’t be harmed by the sun during the day or by the moon at night. The LORD will protect you and keep you safe from all dangers.”
▶️ LET’S TALK
When Jesus was born, the Bible tells us that King Herod staged a manhunt for the young child, to kill Him. Thankfully, an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream and commanded him to take the child and His mother, and flee to Egypt (Matthew 2:13-14) and Joseph did exactly as he was instructed. Wait and think for a minute: we’re not talking about just any child; we’re talking about Jesus, the Saviour of the whole world. “Shouldn’t He be protected by all angels? Why flee with Him to Egypt?” you might ask.
First, understand that there wasn’t any deception whatsoever in the angel’s instruction to Joseph; there was a real threat to Jesus’ life, and Herod actually could have killed the young child if Joseph hadn’t followed that instruction. Also, notice the angel of the Lord didn’t say, “Flee to Syria.” The instruction was explicit: “…Flee to Egypt, and stay there until I bring you word…” (Matthew 2:13). If Joseph had gone to Syria, he would have encountered another trouble. We must be where God wants us! His protection isn’t everywhere; His protection is in His instruction to you.
Some people feel they can do whatever they want and choose whatever way to go, and then think God is supposed to see to it that they’re shielded and protected from evil. It’s not so! God gives instructions and directions; you’re divinely protected in following the instructions and guidance that He’s given you. You’re shielded from all the attacks and evil that destroy others when you stay in His Word. He’s the Boss; when He tells you what to do and where to go, comply. When you align yourself with His perfect will, you’ll dwell in safety permanently. Hallelujah!
You will surely come back with a Testimony!

I dwell in Christ; therefore, I’m forever in safety, shielded from all the attacks and evil that destroy others. No weapon formed against me shall prosper, because the Word of God is my life; in Christ, I live, and move, and have my being. Hallelujah!
