God has heavenly assets and resources assigned to your life that you cannot see. They are in place to protect you and watch over your life. To the casual observer, you look vulnerable, exposed and out in the open. With God that is never your reality.
The recent Inaugural activities in Washington, D.C., brought back a memory from my past. I recalled a time in my days as a cop when my SWAT team worked with the Secret Service to provide security for President Ford. Our team was positioned on the rooftops of Stanford University overlooking a plaza where the President would speak. No one on the ground knew we were there unless they knew what to look for.
As I watched the Inaugural this week my eyes immediately went to the rooflines of the surrounding government buildings and there they were, the dark specks of observers, snipers, and tactical teams. And those were the ones we were allowed to see. Other layers of security remained hidden even to the most informed observer.
There is a spiritual parallel. Not everything God has prepared for your protection is visible – even to you. He has angels positioned in high places tasked with the singular assignment to surround your life and protect you when darkness calls. The corridors of your life are lined with guardian angels. Your family has a heavenly security detail assigned to them to protect every step they take throughout each day. God’s Spirit lives in you and surrounds you. You are covered. Not one of God’s children ever walks into a zone of danger alone and unprotected.
Today, as you navigate through a challenging situation, look up. Look up toward roofline of the heavens. Ask God to open your eyes to see what He has put in place for your protection. He is always working behind the scenes and out of sight. You can walk forward in confidence knowing no weapon formed against you will prosper because God has your back.
