God’s hedge of protection

Leave a comment

God hedges His children.
Job 1: 10 “Have you not put a hedge around him and his household and everything he has? You have blessed the work of his hands, so that his flocks and herds are spread throughout the land.”
 Here we see satan question God about His hedge of protection around Job and all that was his. He knew he could not do anything to Job as long as God’s protection remained around Job, so tells God in  
✿ Job 1: 11 But now stretch out your hand and strike everything he has, and he will surely curse you to your face.” 12 The Lord said to Satan, “Very well, then, everything he has is in your power, but on the man himself do not lay a finger.”
✿ Isaiah 5:5 Now I will tell you what I am going to do to my vineyard:
I will take away its hedge,and it will be destroyed;
I will break down its wall, and it will be trampled.”
So we see when God’s hedge of protection is removed from around us or if there is even a small opening in this hedge that’s formed due to sin, the enemy will find his way in! He is a serpent in disguise.
We need to daily pray a hedge of protection around us, our homes, our children the work of our hands, our finances and all that is ours. We need God’s covering because Satan is waiting to enter and steal, kill and destroy.
A hedge is like a defensive wall often built around a city. It’s a kind of a protective fence–a barrier. God’s hedge is a wall of fire(His very presence), the Blood of Jesus Christ our Lord and of His angels.
✿Zechariah 2:5 “And I myself will be a wall of fire around it,’ declares the LORD, ‘and I will be its glory within.’
✿ 2 Samuel 8:6b – The Lord preserved David whithersoever he went.
✿ Psalm 32:7 – Thou art my hiding place; Thou shalt preserve me from trouble; Thou shalt compass me about.”
We need to look out for holes in this hedge caused by sin, disobedience and deal with it so that we are hidden from the enemy, familiar and other wandering spirits.
May we always remain inside God’s hedge of protection.
Stay blessed and safe in His mighty arms.
