The Righteous are Protected

“For the LORD protects the bones of the righteous;

not one of them is broken!”

Psalm 34:20

“He will not let your foot be moved;

he who keeps you will not slumber.”

Psalm 121:3

There is no doubt in my mind that God protects us from all danger and harm. People always ask me this question: Does God protect us? I respond back by asking two questions: Are you walking in righteousness? And are you listening and obeying what He is telling you? These are your keys to His protection. Righteousness and obedience. Loyalty to God and God alone. God is not looking the other way, sleeping, or ignoring His own. No way will He allow your foot to be moved.

“The Lord protects the righteous.” Let’s take a good look at this word, “Righteous,” again. It really begins here. God does NOT exempt us from trials, but He sure does bring us through them victoriously. The righteous are people who walk upright. They are ethical people. They do not compromise under any circumstances no matter who likes them or not. They refuse to yield to evil and ungodly behaviors. They stand their ground and God keeps their foot from moving. They don’t slip and fall. They are steadfast. They stand strong, they are unmoved by what others think or say, and they are unfaced by being shunned, unfriended, or ignored. They don’t care. They are sold out to God and God alone.
