“…for you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God…” 

Colossians 3:3 (NKJV)

With the terrible news you hear every day from different parts of the world, one could be tempted to entertain fear of insecurity but as a Christian, it is important you understand that the evil happening around you is not for you. Although this could be difficult to accept especially in some places where there are high risks of attack but the truth remains that irrespective of the happenings around you, you are preserved in Christ Jesus. The Bible says in our opening text that “…you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God…” Colossians 3:3 (NKJV). Did you see that? It lets us know that you are not standing alone. You are standing with Jesus and as long as Jesus cannot be harmed, so also you cannot be harmed.

Therefore, live every day of your life conscious of this truth. The challenge with so many people today is that they are not conscious of the promises of God for their lives, they are more conscious of the reality of what is happening around them than what God has said about us in His word. But I encourage you to be different. Refuse to allow the reality around you to be your reality. Let God’s word and promises be your reality. Live in it and let it dominate your consciousness. For example, the word of God says “Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler. And from the perilous pestilence. He shall cover you with his feathers, and under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler. You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, nor of the arrow that flies by day, nor the pestilence that walks in darkness, nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday. A thousand may fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand; but it shall not come near you. Only with your eyes shall you look, and see the reward of the wicked…” Psalms 91:3-8 (NKJV) Now, when you see things like this, what goes through your mind? Do you just brush it off as one of those things, or it becomes your stronghold and your reality? I want to encourage you to take scriptures like this very seriously because when you do, you activate the power that it carries. Therefore, live every day of your life knowing that you are preserved in Christ Jesus. Halleluiah!


The secret to living in God’s protective cover is by making His promises your reality!


My life is hidden with Christ in God, therefore I do not fear what man may do or device against me. I am protected beyond measure and no harm shall come near me because the Lord is my refuge, my shield and my buckler. In Him I breathe and move and have my being. I am indestructible and untouchable in the name of Jesus. Amen!
