An Angel Encamps Around You!
The Bible says that “The angel of the Lord encamps all around those who fear Him, and delivers them.” (see Psalm 34:7) It’s an unfailing promise. God never leaves you to fend for yourself...He assures your protection.
Why “encamps”? This reminds us of the time when the people of Israel lived in the desert. There may have been enemies, aggressive tribes, wild animals ... the danger was real, but the people had received a promise. God would send His angel to protect them. To shield them from all of their fears.
“All those who fear Him”...Fearing God doesn’t mean being afraid of Him. Rather, it’s demonstrating reverence, or esteem and regard; love; and respect. And as you do so, God’s protection, favor, mercy, and kindness are released to you!
But...today, there’s much more than angels guarding you! The Bible describes Jesus as far superior to the angels. (see Hebrews 1:4) He said Himself, “‘...lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.’” (see the Bible, Matthew 28:20) And when He left this Earth after 33 years, He said, “‘I will not leave you orphans...the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, will always be with you.’” (see John 14:18, 26; John 15:26)
