No evil shall befall you,
Nor shall any plague come near your dwelling;
For He shall give His angels charge over you,
To keep you in all your ways.
– Psalm 91:10-11
This passage isn’t saying God’s people will never experience evil. But when evil does come upon us, it will be turned into something good. Present painful events will be turned into future moments of joy.
In every negative situation, we can believe God for protection and eventually deliverance. Though Satan seeks to destroy us, God has given His angels guardianship over us and the powers of hell cannot hurt us without Heaven’s permission.
Disease, disaster, and death may surround us, but we do not have to fear. As long as we keep the faith, no depravity will touch us. If we stumble, angels will catch us. They will keep us from falling.
At home, at school, or at work; whether sleep or awake; God’s angels will guard us wherever we go.
