• “How different the world would look, how different the state of our nation would be, if there were more sanctified priestly souls! These are souls who have the power to bless, for they intercede with sanctified hearts. They never begin their daily time of intercessory prayer without having first brought to the cross all that is unholy in their lives, so that their old self can be crucified there with Jesus, the sacrificial Lamb.” – Basilea Schlink

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.
