KEY SCRIPTURE: Job 3:26 KJV” I was not in safety, neither had I rest, neither was I quiet; yet trouble came”.
Job describes what he did to make trouble come to him, in our key scripture. He says he was not in safety. Was Job really not in safety? Just consider what Satan said about Job’s security and safety, which Job had no knowledge about. Job 1:10 KJV” Hast not thou made an hedge about him, and about his house , and about all that he hath on every side ? thou hast blessed the work of his hands, and his substance is increased in the land” This was his real security state yet he felt he was not safe. He also said he had no rest. He nailed the nail on the head when he said, I was not quiet. This was the real source of all his trouble. The contrary words he said against what God has made for him released him into Satan’s trap.
According to Proverbs 6:2, one is snared or trapped with the words of his mouth. James 3:6 says the tongue is a fire and sets the course of nature on fire. Please consider a very serious aspect of what our tongue can bring us,
Numbers 14:28 KJV, say unto them, As truly as I live, saith the LORD, as ye have spoken in mine ears, so will I do to you: Now what does God allow into our lives? What we say with our lips. Job went through all that hell because he said he was not secured, not protected and was not at rest. He lost his protection and indeed he was not at rest
The hedge of security around the Christian is the presence of angels encamped around him or her.
Psalm 34:7 KJV “The angel of the LORD encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them”. Say this always, the angels of the Lord are always around me because I fear the Lord. They would not allow my foot to be moved. Every evil condition has spiritual sources, they must break the spiritual defenses around you before they can touch you. Those spiritual defenses can only be broken by you. They are destroyed by
1.What you believe
2.What you say
3.What you do.
If you believe in line with the word, say in agreement with the word and act according to the word, nothing in this life whether spiritual or natural can temper with your defenses. Nothing threatens you, so don’t fear anything.
The angels of God encamp around me, forming a wall of protection for me. I do not fear anything that the world calls fear. I am at rest by the power of God, and no evil shall or can befall me in Jesus name. .
Proverbs 6:2 KJV “Thou art snared with the words of thy mouth, thou art taken with the words of thy mouth”.
James 3:6 KJV “And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell” .
