Covenant Protection by David Ibiyeomie
Topic: Covenant Protection
Life is a gift from God to man and if it is a gift, it must be preserved. Many pursue things without taking care of their lives. The most miserable thing a believer can do is to be ignorant about protection.
In this last days, wickedness will increase but in the mist of all these evil, God will exempt His own and you are one of them. It is God’s will that no evil befalls you but there are certain covenant requirements you must meet to enjoy divine protection. The first is that you must be born again. Until you are saved, you are not safe. The dwelling in the secret place is dwelling in Christ.
Psalm 91:1 -He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
You also need to understand your position in Christ.
Psalm 82:5 -They know not, neither will they understand; they walk on in darkness: all the foundations of the earth are out of course.
Ignorance of who you are will make you a cheap victim of the devil but that will not be your portion in Jesus name. You must understand your new status as a child of God. At new birth, you received the life of God that makes you untouchable, unkillable, unmollestable and indestructible by the devil and his cohorts. When you know who you are in Christ, satan will not be able to touch you because you have the very life of God in you. Thus, to enjoy protection, you have to understand your new place in Christ. With this understanding, you can live a constant victorious life in this wicked world.
Understand that you are in a new kingdom.
John 17:14 – I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.
Satan dictates what happens in the world but you belong to another kingdom. The laws of the devil in the world does not have power over you as born again because you belong to another kingdom though you are in the world. You have been moved from the kingdom of darkness into the kingdom of God the moment you became born again.
Col.1:13 – Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:
When you are born again, your status changes; you no longer belong to the kingdom where the devil is and satan will never have access to you. When this understanding dawns on you, you will know that you cannot be in Christ and be attacked as whatever cannot touch Him cannot touch you too.
Always make right confession; it is your confession that determines your possession in protection. Don’t say what the world say but say what the WORD says. Saying what God says is not pride; it is fulfilling the law of faith
Prov. 6:2 – Thou art snared with the words of thy mouth, thou art taken with the words of thy mouth.
Many people that died untimely died through their mouth. When you confess negatively, God withdraws His protection around you.
Prov. 18:21 – Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.
The word you speak determines the direction of your life. When people in the world talk about insecurity in the face of kidnap, assassination, armed robbery and other evil in the society, you talk safety and declare that no evil shall befall you.
Matt. 12:37 – For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.
The devil cannot attack you until you speak negatively. He is very subtle; he will want to confess negatively; thereby breaking the hedge of protection around you for him to attack. For your confession to produce good result, you have to store God’s word in your heart. Meditate on the word and then, speak it and it will produce in your life in Jesus name!
Therefore, ensure you say constantly, consistently and continually about what God says about protection in order to enforce it and I stand as God’s elect, and cancel every idol word you have spoken that is standing against you with the blood of Jesus Christ! From today, begin to enjoy divine protection in Jesus name –Amen!
God bless you
