Recently, Dad reminded me of something very unique and reassuring: He used to drive a Nissan Primera. He would normally park the car under a cashew tree in front of the house. 

One evening, it was quite stormy. It did not occur to any of us that he should move the car. When we woke up, we saw what amazed us. The heavy storm broke off branches of the tree. There was a branch right by the left of the car. There was another one to the right. 

But the one that was really humbling was a branch that was really close to dropping on the windscreen but was held by another branch just before it wrecked any damage. The car was right between it all untouched. We were grateful to the Lord. 

Beloved, there is something called rest on every side. Let me give you a scriptural idea of what it looks like: But now the Lord my God has given me rest on every side; there is neither adversary nor evil occurrence.

(I Kings 5:4 NKJV)

In the name of Jesus, you will enjoy rest on every side. There will be no adversary and there will be no evil occurrence. This is how the Psalms put it: 

A thousand may fall at your side, And ten thousand at your right hand, But it shall not come near you. (Psalms 91:7 NKJV

There are a lot of people plagued with fear because they lack insight into God’s protective plans for them. Strangely, there are things the devil knows about us that we are ignorant about. Hear this great insight from the devil about Job (and by extension you): 

So Satan answered the Lord and said, “Does Job fear God for nothing? Have You not made a hedge around him, around his household, and around all that he has on every side? You have blessed the work of his hands, and his possessions have increased in the land.

(Job 1:9-10 NKJV)

Beloved, as you go out today, be conscious of divine presence. There is a hedge of protection around you. It is also around your household. Do not panic about your child. Do not panic about your properties. How about the works of your hands? It is also blessed. What about your possession? It is increasing. 

Do not allow fear. Fear is the enemy’s ally. It opens the door for him to operate. When fear knocks on your door, let faith open it. There will be nothing standing at the door again. Fear cannot stand faith!

There is rest for you on every side. Believe it!

There is love in sharing
