Safe in Troubled Times
Are you afraid?  Is it possible to truly be safe in these troubled times?  As the enemy lashes out with murder, theft, and destruction,  what should our response be?  How can we protect ourselves, our children, our flocks?  While security measures may be a deterrent,  fighting worldly battles on the enemy’s terms will never bring us victory.  It is important believers use principles of the Kingdom of God to bring victory and overcome the enemy.  Faith in God’s Word is what assures our eternal salvation, AND our provision, our protection..  As you purpose to BELIEVE GOD and speak His words of truth, the force of faith will eradicate the fear in your soul and you WILL overcome!  “And this is the victory that overcomes the world, even our FAITH”  (I John 5:4).
Here is a totally Scripture-based confession/prayer followed by the Scripture references used. As you speak forth what God said about your safety, you build your faith.  Read this aloud daily and experience the safety and peace only God can give!  FEAR NOT!
I Am Safe and Secure in Christ!
Father, I thank You that You have chosen to be in covenant with me simply because I accepted the shed blood of Jesus Christ as the price paid for my sin.  I am born again, a new creation in Christ Jesus.  I am made the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus, not through any striving or good works of my own doing, but simply because He loved me and gave Himself for me.
In Your covenant with me, You have promised to keep me safe from disaster, destruction, and evil.  You said Jesus has redeemed me from the curse of the law, being made a curse for me.   I now enjoy the BLESSING in my life. No one can curse what God has blessed!  I am BLESSED!
So today, I put You in remembrance of Your Word concerning me:
I thank You that I dwell in the secret place of the Most High, under the shadow of the Almighty.  I say, “You are My Refuge and Fortress, my God in YOU I do trust.  No evil shall befall me, no accident shall overtake me – nor any plague or calamity come near my dwelling place (home or body).  I am not afraid of terror by night nor the arrow (evil plots and slanders of the wicked) that flies by day, nor of the pestilence that stalks in darkness, nor of the destruction and sudden death that surprise and lay waste at noonday.  I am established on righteousness. I am far from even the thought of oppression or destruction, for I do not fear; and from terror, for it does not come near me.  You give Your angels special charge over me to accompany, and defend, and preserve me in all my ways of obedience and service.  They are encamped around about me.  You are my confidence, firm and strong. You keep my foot from being caught in a trap or hidden danger.  You give me safety and ease me – JESUS is my safety!  With LONG LIFE You will satisfy me and show me Your salvation.”
As I travel I go I say, “I will pass over to the other side”, and I have what I say. I walk on in my way securely, and in confident trust; for my heart and mind are firmly fixed and stayed on You, and I am kept in perfect peace.
When I lie down to sleep, Father, I sing for joy upon my bed, because You sustain me.  In peace I lie down and sleep, for You alone, Lord, make me to dwell in safety.  I lie down, and I am not afraid.    My sleep is sweet for You give blessings to me in sleep.
Jesus, You have given me the authority and power to trample upon serpents and scorpions and over all the power the enemy possesses. You said NOTHING shall in any way harm me.  Therefore, in the name of Jesus, I address and take authority over the prince of the power of the air, and over the principalities, powers, and the rulers of the darkness of this world, and spiritual wickedness in high places, who have been assigned by satan to come against me.  Satan, I bind your works and render them null and void in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth. I forbid you to operate in my home, my workplace, my school, the streets and businesses in my city, and where I travel today.  I cast you out of my land and command you to turn back, for I know this,  IF GOD BE FOR ME, WHO CAN BE AGAINST ME?  You are a defeated foe; my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, has defeated you and rendered you of NO EFFECT against me.  So today, and EVERY day, I say NO DEVIL!  I am submitted to the Lord and I resist your efforts against me in the name of Jesus so you MUST GO!
I say NO to fear – Father You have not given me the spirit of fear, but the spirit of power, spirit of love and the spirit of a sound mind.  I DO NOT FEAR!  I trust You with all my heart and lean not to my own understanding; in all my ways I acknowledge You and You direct my path.  Jesus, You are my Shepherd, I shall not want.  You make me to lie down in green pastures; You lead me by the still waters, You restore my soul.  Though I may walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will FEAR NO EVIL for You are WITH ME, Your rod (to protect) and Your staff (to guide), they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies.  You anoint my head with oil; my cup runs over!  Surely only goodness, mercy, and unfailing love shall follow me ALL the days of my life and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.  The Lord is my Helper; I will not be seized with alarm (I will not fear or dread or be terrified). WHAT CAN MAN DO TO ME?  Who can be my foe, if YOU are on my side?
Father, Your Word says I am to FEAR NOT, for You have redeemed me; You have called me by my name, I am YOURS.  When I pass through the waters You will be with me, and through the rivers, they will not overwhelm me.  When I walk through the fire, I will not be burned, nor will the flame kindle upon me.  For You are the Lord my God, the Holy One of Israel; my Savior.  According to Your Word I am established in righteousness, and I am far from even the thought of oppression or destruction, for I do not fear, and from terror, for it shall not come near me. You said they may gather together and stir up strife, but it is not from You.  Whoever stirs up strife against me will fall and surrender to me. No weapon formed against me shall prosper, and every tongue that rises against me in judgment, I will show to be in the wrong,  This peace is the heritage of the servants of the Lord.
Even as You spoke to Joshua, I believe You have spoken to me, “Be strong, vigorous, and very courageous.  Be not afraid, neither be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”  Wherever I go, YOU are not only WITH me, but IN me.  The Greater One dwells in me! Greater is He Who is in me than he who is in the world.  I am strong in you, Lord, and the power of Your might!  Thank You that You contend with him who contends with me and give safety to my children.  You never leave me or forsake me.
Even as Paul said, I declare, “The Lord will certainly deliver and draw me to Himself from every assault of evil.  He will preserve me and bring me safe unto His heavenly kingdom.” Thank you Father that you are alert and active and watch over Your Word to perform it. Your Word is truth and  I believe it!
