A few years ago, we were on the tail end of a hurricane that was going through north Florida. We were along the southwest coast and thought we were far enough away from the eye to enjoy a nice summer beach vacation. However, when we arrived we were under tornado warnings all night and the following morning , the sea waves had reached our doors and the wind sounded like erie howls and screams. Down the street, homes had collapsed. It was late at night , our family gathered around in one bed and we could feel our wooden beach house shake through the night. The bed and furniture were moving and our porch furniture was being tossed around as if it were a palm branch.
I clung to my children as we could feel our bed moving and listening to howling wings. I recited 2 bible verses over and over out loud. The verses began to comfort us, build up our faith,our fear was diminishing and slowly each child feel asleep. I remember being at complete peace knowing I was safe in Gods hands even though the wooden beach shack was shaking so hard our inside furniture was moving. I peacefully fell asleep in the storm.
12 years ago, I sat through a storm and was a nervous wreck. Am I going to die? Will my roof come off? Why are my walls shaking? Why is my husband going outside to look? Agh! You see, it’s all about controlling your thoughts. Focus on God’s word, know He is in control and you will be okay. Fix your thoughts, don’t worry and take a break from listening to people put fear in you.
Promises of God’s Protection:
I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for thou, Lord, only makest me dwell in safety. In peace I will lie down and sleep, for you alone, O Lord, will keep me safe Psalm 4:8
For you are my hiding place; you protect me from trouble. You surround me with songs of victory Psalm 32:7
The Lord is my light and my salvation— so why should I be afraid? The Lord is my fortress, protecting me from danger, so why should I tremble? Psalm 27
I trust in the Lord for protection. So why do you say to me, “Fly like a bird to the mountains for safety! 4 But the Lord is in his holy Temple; the Lord still rules from heaven. He watches everyone closely, examining every person on earth. 5 The Lord examines both the righteous and the wicked. He hates those who love violence. 6 He will rain down blazing coals and burning sulfur on the wicked, punishing them with scorching winds. 7 For the righteous Lord loves justice. The virtuous will see his face ps 11
I love you, Lord; you are my strength. The Lord is my rock, my fortress, and my savior; my God is my rock, in whom I find protection. He is my shield, the power that saves me, and my place of safety. I called on the Lord, who is worthy of praise, and he saved me from my enemies. You rescue the humble, but you humiliate the proud. Ps 18
For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. 2 Timothy 1:7
He will cover you with his feathers. He will shelter you with his wings. His faithful promises are your armor and protection. Psalm 91:4
For he will order his angels to protect you wherever you go Psalm 91:11.
This I declare about the Lord: He alone is my refuge, my place of safety; he is my God, and I trust him. For he will rescue you from every trap and protect you from deadly disease. He will cover you with his feathers. He will shelter you with his wings. His faithful promises are your armor and protection. Do not be afraid of the terrors of the night, nor the arrow that flies in the day. Do not dread the disease that stalks in darkness, nor the disaster that strikes at midday. Though a thousand fall at your side, though ten thousand are dying around you, these evils will not touch you.
If you make the Lord your refuge, if you make the Most High your shelter, no evil will conquer you; no plague will come near your home. 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. You will trample upon lions and cobras;
you will crush fierce lions and serpents under your feet!
The Lord says, “I will rescue those who love me. I will protect those who trust in my name. When they call on me, I will answer; I will be with them in trouble. I will rescue and honor them. I will reward them with a long life and give them my salvation.”
The Lord says, “I will rescue those who love me. I will protect those who trust in my name. Psalm 91:14
Every word of God proves true. He is a shield to all who come to him for protection Proverbs 30:5
The Lord protects all those who love him, but he destroys the wicked. Psalm 145:20.
The Lord is my rock, my fortress, and my savior; my God is my rock, in whom I find protection.He is my shield, the power that saves me, and my place of safety.He is my refuge, my savior, the one who saves me from violence.2 Samuel 22:3-4
Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? [shall] tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:35-39
I live in the shelter of the Most High
And I find rest in the Shadow of the Almighty
This I declare about the Lord on High,
He alone is my rock and my safety
He is my refuge and where I go to hide
When my enemies surround me
And a thousand fall at my side
Traps and snares try to grab me
But the Lord rescues and I rejoice gladly
Deadly diseases and a world of evil things
Yet My God covers me and protects me under His wings
His promises are yes and true
Our armour, protecting me and you
I will not be afraid of the terrors in the night
Though the world tries to fill each heart with fright
The Lord goes before me, He strengthens me with His might
No evil can touch me, my prayers reach His heights
For I know He hears each word I pray
Protecting me each night and every day
I have made the Lord my refuge, a shelter is He
Therefore He’s promised no evil can conquer me
Plagues cannot touch those I love
His angels protect me, commissioned from above
They hold me up with their hands
And protect me as I walk through this land
I love my God, whose throne is on High
And Jesus, His Son, on His right Side
He is with me through all my troubles and fear
Always besides me, always near.
