Scare Tactics

Though I am surrounded by troubles, you will protect me from the anger of my enemies. You reach out your hand, and the power of your right hand saves me.
— Psalm 138:7

As a child of God, you have divine protection. There’s too much fear and anxiety going around our world today and most of it stems from this. “We all could die at any moment” is the lie too many people have bought into. When you get saved from something harmful, your safety is preserved.

They call the born again experience “Getting Saved” because you’re going from impending doom to a place of safety. When you get saved there’s a supernatural protection that gets on you! The angels of the Lord are encamped around you so much so they keep you from stumbling on a rock! (Psalm 91:10-12)

Psalm 91:14, “The LORD says, “I will rescue those who love me. I will protect those who trust in my name.” Don’t ever use scare tactics to get your children to obey you. Don’t operate in fear! Instead of “You need to be home by 8 pm because you could be killed by a drunk driver” say, “Get home by 8 pm or you’ll see the wrath of God manifest through your mommy/daddy.” You are protected. Everything that’s yours is protected. Though you may be surrounded by trouble God protects you from the anger of your enemies! He reaches His hand down and saves you! Not sometimes or when God’s in a good mood, He protects you all day, EVERY DAY. Read Psalm 91 in it’s entirety until you snap yourself out of that kind of fear.

You are blessed! Goodness and mercy follow you all the days of your life. You are destined for success. Your seed will be mighty on this earth. With long life will God satisfy you. In Jesus’ name!
