“The Eternal will guard you from all harm, he will preserve your life; he will protect you as you come and go, now and for evermore.” (Psalms 121: 7-8, Moffatt Translation)
You are safe here and now. You are safe over there and in your tomorrow. There isn’t a place you can go or a thing you can do without God’s presence and protection. This is a promise that doesn’t get withdrawn and is unconditional.
Why? Because God cannot fail to be All. He is always going to be where you are and He is always going to be powerful Love right there. He is the Eternal. God is ahead of you, behind you, and right with you now and always. He is Life and you reside safely in that Life and in His embracing, sustaining Love.
We don’t need human bravery to get by. We have divine courage to lean upon. We are guarded from harm in each and every day because we are precious to God and because our comings and goings—all that we are and all that we do—are the expression of His Life. They are God’s qualities made known, so nothing is done without His very nature and substance behind it and within it.
Now and forevermore, walk forward with peace. You are always with God, with good. You can leave a job, your home, a relationship, but you will never be separate from the Eternal Life which is perfect, preserving, protecting, powerful Love.
