His Presence Is Home Part 4. His Presence Is Your Greatest Defence.

"You shall hide them in the secret place of Your presence from the plots of man; You shall keep them secretly in a pavilion from the strife of tongues."
Psalms 31:20 NKJV

When the presence of God is in your life, you are in the safest of places anywhere in the universe. Many Christians are worried about their protection. As a result, they go about looking for mantles, anointed oil bottles, anointed stones, or sand, and the like from men of God so that they can apply on themselves, their homes and their families to be protected.

Such behavior happens when even sincere believers are not taught the reality of God's presence and how to steward it. If God is present in a man's life, He is enough defense against any attack from the enemy, visible and invisible.

David knew the presence of God and stewarded the glory of His presence through His life and kingship. He knew that as long as God was present in His life, he would experience Psalm 9:3: "When my enemies turn back, They shall fall and perish at Your presence." (NKJV). His enemies will be destroyed by the presence of God in his life.

Like the same hot water that hardens an egg and melts the butter, it is the same presence of God that gives life to the righteous and destroys the wicked. The presence of God is what Moses called "the secret place of the Most High" (Psalm 91:1). It is secret because nobody can see Him around you but He is more real than your enemies.

Trust the Lord that in His presence you are forever protected. In His presence you will abide under the shadow (protection from heat) of the Almighty. The Lord will be your refuge and fortress. He will deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the perilous pestilence. 

He will cover you with His feathers. In His presence you will not be afraid of the terror by night nor of the arrow that flies by day, nor the destruction that lays waste at noon day. Multitudes may fall and die around you but death will not come near you. God will protect you from death and with long life He will satisfy you and show you His salvation. 

The presence of God in my life is my greatest and only defense. He protects me from all enemies including death.
