(This is the Lord speaking to man). The enemy shall not exact upon him; nor the son of wickedness afflict him. And I will beat down his foes before his face, and plague them that hate him. But My Faithfulness and My Mercy shall be with him: and in My Name shall his horn be exalted. He shall cry unto Me, Thou art my Father, my God, and the Rock of my Salvation. Also I will make him My Firstborn, higher than the kings of the earth. My Mercy will I keep for him for evermore, and My Covenant shall stand fast with him. His seed also will I make to endure for ever, and his throne as the days of heaven. Psalm 89: 22-24,26-29. These verses are to encourage you Believers with the understanding that if Christ is your Saviour, than His Father, the Lord God Almighty, will Keep you under His Wing even as you go through this life WITH all its trials, troubles, testings, and tribulations. His Keeping Power does not keep you FROM these things, it will Keep you as you go THROUGH these things. I can't impress upon you enough that the Lord will use EVERYTHING in your life to Grow you in Christ. And I mean EVERYTHING. He'll use the sheep, goats, AND wolves IN CHURCH, your place of work and all that goes on there, government laws, rules, and mandates to shape you, break you, and Conform you to the Likeness of His Son. He'll use gossip and gossipers to test your integrity, angry family and friends to test your Love, even silly politicians and their insane laws to test your Obedience. The Lord will use ALL these things to bring you even closer into His Son. GOD WILL NOT TEMPT YOU TO SIN, but He will allow Life to "work you over", ALL to His Glory. How many times a day will you cry out, "I Praise You Lord In All Things, at All Times, that You Be Glorified and Magnified in and through this Life You have given to me". Every THING you come up against, YOU CAN COME THROUGH VICTORIOUSLY, if you will allow the Lord to help you do so. That Way, you will Forever, Be Blessed.
