To keep safe or defend someone means you are protecting that person from hurt/harm. Therefore protection is an act of covering or shielding someone from danger. Psalm 121, reminds us of God’s constant care and concern, also it gives us the assurance that God is with us in every situation we are facing. Many people today, are afraid of sudden attacks, plagues, etc.
There are many promises and examples of protection in the Bible, God promised to protect the Israelites (Exodus 23:27). You are sure of God’s protection when you live in accordance with His foreordained plans and purpose for your life. Note that although God has the ability to deliver us out of every physical calamity or trouble, it may not be His will to do so. Sometimes He uses these trials to purify and strengthen us. At these times, we should “count it all joy.” This is because by allowing such trials, God puts our faith to test. He intends we develop our faith so that we can persevere and grow to maturity and Christ-likeness (James 1:2-3).
Protecting us from such trials would not be beneficial to us. Fear, inconsistency, and doubt in your devotion to God can make you to seek protection elsewhere. (2Timothy 1:7, 1John 4:4)
