It doesn’t matter what or who comes against you to destroy you if you trust God’s Word. A whole army of the enemy is no match for the army of angels that surround you to protect you! Rodney Howard Browne explains that you cannot see them (unless God supernaturally opens your eyes), but they are there nonetheless.
And there were four leprous men at the entering in of the gate: and they said one to another, why sit we here until we die? If we say, We will enter into the city, then the famine is in the city, and we shall die there: and if we sit still here, we die also. Now therefore come, and let us fall unto the host of the Syrians: if they save us alive, we shall live; and if they kill us, we shall but die.
And they rose up in the twilight, to go unto the camp of the Syrians.” and when they were come to the uttermost part of the camp of Syria, behold, there was no man there. For the Lord had made the host of the Syrians to hear a noise of chariots, and a noise of horses, even the noise of a great host.” and they said one to another, Lo, the king of Israel hath hired against us the kings of the Hittites, and the kings of the Egyptians, to come upon us. Wherefore they arose and fled in the twilight, and left their tents, and their horses, and their asses, even the camp as it was, and fled for their life.
2 KINGS 7:3-7
When God is on your side, armies will flee in terror before you. It doesn’t make sense in the natural, but it is a reality. Rodney Howard Brown explains that this is not going to happen for you if you do not believe God’s Word. You must put your faith and trust in God’s Word and angels will work on your behalf.
Notice the last part of verse 11 in The Amplified Bible. They will defend and preserve you in all your ways [of obedience and service]. That’s why you want to make sure that you’re obeying Him and serving Him. The angels of the Lord are there, but they cannot defend you in your ways of disobedience. You can’t be smoking crack and asking your angel to play lookout!
Make sure that you’re obeying God. Make sure that you’re doing everything you know how to do to walk in the plan and the purpose of God for your life. Rodney Howard Browne teaches that when you obey God, the enemy cannot touch you, because the hand of God is upon your life.
This is crucial: God’s protection is in His presence. You must stay in His presence in order to be under His protection. Sin removes you from His presence and His protection. Now look to the next verses, Psalm 91:12-14 (AMP):
They shall bear you up on their hands, lest you dash your foot against a stone. You shall tread upon the lion and adder; the young lion and the serpent shall you trample underfoot.
Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore, I will deliver him; I will set him on high, because he knows and understands My name [has a personal knowledge of My mercy, love, and kindness — trusts and relies on Me, knowing I will never forsake him, no, never].
