• “We say, then, to anyone who is under trial, give Him time to steep the soul in His eternal truth. Go into the open air, look up into the depths of the sky, or out upon the wideness of the sea, or on the strength of the hills that is His also; or, if bound in the body, go forth in the spirit; spirit is not bound. Give Him time and, as surely as dawn follows night, there will break upon the heart a sense of certainty that cannot be shaken.” – Amy Carmichael

Angels Encamp by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 07/28/11

“When I was little, I’d roam all over the neighborhood. But now, with my kids, they stay in the backyard. I mean, there are just too many crazy people out there today.”

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: We need to make wise choices and keep children safe, but we don’t have to live in constant fear.

Psalm 34:7 says, “The angel of the LORD encamps around those who fear Him.” That word “encamp” reminds me of the story of Elisha. The Syrian army had been deployed to capture him, but he wasn’t afraid. You see, God enabled Elisha to see the spiritual reality—the hills surrounding him were filled with an angelic army.

The dangers children face today are real, just like that enemy army. But we can live in peace knowing that an invisible host of angels surrounds them. The only way evil can get to them is by God’s permission. And the best way we can protect them is to pray.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.
