The Lord shall preserve you from all evil

As a brand-spankin'-new homeowner, there's an all new budget to work out. And in that process, the enemy has tried to get me into fear over not having enough money to cover expenses when they come. This morning as those fearful thoughts came, I cast them upon the Lord and thanked the Lord that His Word says He shall supply all of my needs (Philippians 4:19).

Then I set myself to spend some time with Him in prayer and in the Word, and I thought I'd check the Biblegateway verse of the day and read that chapter. Today's was Psalm 121, verses 7-8.  Verse 7 stuck out at me:
The LORD shall preserve you from all evil; He shall preserve your soul.
I immediately thanked the Lord for preserving (keeping, guarding) me and my family from all evil -- including not having enough money to pay our bills and expenses, because not having enough money to pay your bills is evil -- plain and simple. 

What evil has the enemy been storming your brain with fear about? Cast it upon the Lord and thank Him for keeping you from it!

Have a great Wednesday!


  1. amen! Fear about not having enough money is evil too!!

  2. Having fear of what God ultimately controls is I think worse than idolatry. The enemy works always on our fear. The only proper fear is fear of the Lord. I think we had this conversation before. Good for you, send the fear packing with the garbage!
