Psalm 121:7-8New International Version
7 The Lord will keep you from all harm—
he will watch over your life;
Psalm 143:11New International Version
11 For your name’s sake, Lord, preserve my life;
in your righteousness, bring me out of trouble.
What does it mean that God provides preservation?
- God will preserve your life, family, children, job etc. so that you can concentrate on entering your destiny
- God’s children will receive:
- Protection by God
- Guidance by God
- Favour by God
Who is receiving God’s preservation?
- Those who surrender themselves and their agenda to God
- Those who have the gift of the Holy Spirit
- Those who follow the rules of the kingdom
- Those who have a clear allegiance to God’s kingdom
God’s preservation is similar to a Protectorate
- A Protectorate is a relation of a strong state to a weaker state, where the stronger state protects the weaker one.
- God forms a Protectorate with each of it’s children
What jeopardizes the protection?
- Sin (even if you think its secret)
- Idolatry (attach a higher value to things like Body, Books. TV, etc)
- Not actively contributing to the Kingdom
