TEXT: Psalm 121, Psalm 91:11-12
121:1 I will lift up mine e 26TH yes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.
121:2 My help cometh from the LORD, which made heaven and earth.
121:3 He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber.
121:4 Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.
121:5 The LORD is thy keeper: the LORD is thy shade upon thy right hand.
121:6 The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night.
121:7 The LORD shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul.
121:8 The LORD shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore.
91:11 For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.
91:12 They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.
"Now these are they that came to David to Ziklag, while he yet kept himself close because of Saul the son of Kish: and they were among the mighty men, helpers of the war. 2 They were armed with bows, and could use both the right hand and the left in hurling stones and shooting arrows out of a bow even of Saul's brethren of Benjamin. "(1 Chronicles 12:1-2)
David went into hiding because Saul was a big threat to his life. Notwithstanding, among the people that came to Ziklag with David, were mighty men who also doubled as helpers of war. These men had the capability to hurl stones and shoot arrows perfectly with two hands simultaneously. But one surprising thing is that they were from the tribe of Benjamin — even Saul's tribe. These were the men that came to help the cause of David.
Have you gone into hiding because witches and wizards are after your life? Or you have hired a bus to pack your load out of the compound you are living by night for the same reason? God has ready-made helpers of that can fight on your side. Your dwindling courage can hinder them. You must find courage and declare, "I know my redeemer liveth." So, come out from you hiding: believe God for His redeeming power and He will never disappoint you, in Jesus' name.
Sing spirit filled songs unto God and thank Him for everything He has accomplished in your life and then take the following points.
1. O God my Father, lay my burden in the hearts of my divine helpers, in Jesus' name. Whosoever you have designed to use to help me, use your ministering angels to begin to direct them towards my direction, in Jesus' name.
2. For any spiritual battle/war going on against me/my life; I ask for the release of mighty angels that double as helpers of war. Give them double swords of fire in their hands: with specific instruction to shoot at sight and cut every opposition standing against me without mercy, in Jesus' name.
