In Other Words---No Evil Will Befall You


No evil shall befall you, Nor shall any plague come near your dwelling;
For He shall give His angels charge over you, To keep you in all your ways.
Psalm 91:10-11

Without going into details, lest they come back to haunt me someday, we have occassion where we must do business with someone that I feel is lacking in integrity. I know that given the opportunity he would take advantage of a situation with no regard to others involved. I know this, because I have witnessed it of him more than once. But, because of his position, dealing with him is not optional. We have been attempting to get an answer on a question from him for some time. He is not responding. I've made the comment that he was going to try and harm us. I've fretted about it and worried about it and dwelt upon it. Then, Loni gave us the 'quote' for this week. Today, I heard my answer. Not from the unscrupulous person who is plotting, but from God, my Father. And HE reminds me that HE is in control. He will protect our family and our dwelling space.

In that, I'm able to rest. Praying that you, too, are resting in God's protection today.

Be blessed. To read other interpretations and thoughts on this Psalm, please join Loni at Writing Canvas.

OH It would be hard to confront this passage without thinking along these lines when you are where you are. I do pray God's protection over this situation. Know HIM -- Love him -- and His angels will cover you. God will work HIS plan in your situation.
Happy IOW!

Oh, how I understand, my friend. We are often in similar situations with our business. I have to remember God is in control. May we never forget. Thank you for the reminder this morning!

Isn't it wonderful when we are reminded through God's word, how He truly is caring for us every single day, and in every single situation?
