Psalms 121:6 “the sun will not harm you by day,nor the moon by night.”
What does this verse mean? King David, the author of this psalm is not talking about physical sun damage and the protection with sun cream or losing your way or not seeing under the moonlight.
There are spiritual wickedness that are associated with the day and the power of darkness that afflicts at night.
He shed further light on the spiritual implications of the above verse in Psalms 91:5-6 “You will not fear the terror of night,
nor the arrow that flies by day,
nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness,
nor the plague that destroys at midday.”
So we see from above that there are arrows that flies by the day and plaque that destroys at midday.
So you and I have got work to do to stay under the shadow of Almighty God for protection.
The night is not as calm and restful as you think either.
King David made reference to and warned about terror of the night and pestilence that stalks in the darkness!
Jesus also warned about these enemies in the parable of the weeds see Matthew 13:25 “But while everyone was sleeping, his enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat, and went away.”
What are these weeds? These are anything God has not planted in your life, such as sicknesses, delays, afflictions, poor finances and etc.
We need to be vigilant and take our spiritual walk with God, seriously to ward off enemies attack on your health, family, job and nations at large.
The devil is your enemy and has come to steal and destroy. How can we stay protected without fear?
King David knew too well the God whom he served; see Psalm 23:4 “Even though I walk
through the darkest valley,
I will fear no evil,
for you are with me; And y
Your rod and your staff,
they comfort me.”
He confidently stated and boasted that “I will fear no evil” because he not only had a relationship with God but enjoyed his presence hence assurance.
How can the Lord watch over you and keep you from all harm?
See Psalms 91:1 “Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High
Will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.”
You have to consciously seek His protection and submit yourself to Him, especially in the world full of unexpected.
As you rest under His protective arms, you will have confidence and every reason to feel protected.
Psalms 91:2 “I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress,
My God, in whom I trust.”
Finally, my prayer for you the reader of this, is summarized in the Psalms 121:7-8 “The Lord will keep you from all harm—
he will watch over your life;
the Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore.”
