Security in Jesus!

When we are weak He is strong.

He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High, will abide in the shadow of the Almighty. Psalms 91:1

You are probably wondering how to escape some of the attacks orchestrated by the devil. He attacks both our bodies and minds. We are really in a war. The devil disguises himself sometimes as a friend or a family member. You never know where he’s coming from and to escape from falling victims to his attacks, we have to be on constant alert; but being alert is not enough; you and I need divine protection.

Our Loving Father had already made provision for our attacks. He provided the blood of Christ. I don’t think Christians make proper use of His blood. Most of us accept our eternal life but that is about it. There is no limitation in Jesus. His blood gives life, security, and defense against our every attack. That is why it is so important to continuously ask God for His protection. You and I live in a world filled with people who indulge in satanic activities and people who don’t know about Christ. We are constantly exposed to their evil influences. When they talk to us these evil influences will manifest in subtle ways, and it’s almost impossible to detect. You may not know that it is happening because you cannot know from which background these people come from. Being alert is great but you and I need the blood of Christ. You have to stay close to God. That’s what dwelling in the shelter of the Most High means. You have to choose to remain covered by the blood. No evil can touch you if you are under the protection of Jesus’ blood. Such is the power of the blood shed by Jesus on the cross. Do you understand?

God protected His children through the blood of the Passover lamb when He struck down the firstborn of Egypt and the same protection is available to us today. The Bible offers us this protection as the way to overcome Satan and his evil forces: Let’s look at some scriptures:

1. “They overcame him by the blood of the Lamb” (Revelation 12:11
2. “It is the blood that puts away sin” (Heb. 9:26).
3. “First of all, the blood of Christ is a propitiation for sin”. In Romans 3:25
4. “Take away, then, the old leaven, so that you may be a new mass, even as you are without leaven. For Christ has been put to death as our Passover”. 1 Cor. 5:7
5. And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. Rev. 13:8
6. “In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His grace”. Ephesians 1:7
7. “but if we walk in the Light as He Himself is in the Light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin”. 1 John 1:7

None of us is immune to the devil’s attack but we have a secret weapon in our battles: we have the blood of Christ. Glory! The blood of Christ regains for us all that Adam lost by sin, and brings us much more than we lost. We have eternal security. We have power over sins. We have protection against the devil’s attack and we have victory (in every area of our lives) through the blood of Christ. Start gaining access to all of the benefits of your coverage provided by the Blood of Christ and be blessed.

Praise the Lord!
