Psa 91:5-6, 5 You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, Nor of the arrow that flies by day, 6 Nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness, Nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday
In this crazy world, dangers are everywhere. The care God has over His children is sufficient to defend them from all dangers, but only when they respond otherwise they become exposed. Without a covering, the enemy takes advantage; when we don’t PRAY, the enemy PREYS.
Such frail creatures are we that both by night and by day we are exposed to danger. And so sinful are we that in either season we may be readily carried away by fear. The terrible things that happen in the night; as fire, storms and tempests, invasion of enemies, murders, thefts, and, robberies; a righteous man, when he has committed himself and his family to the care and protection of God by prayer and His word, has no reason to be anxious because he knows he is under God’s care.
In addition, neither pestilence that walks in darkness nor destruction that lays waste at noonday creates terror to those who make the Lord their trust. Isa 59:19 “So shall they fear The name of the LORD from the west, And His glory from the rising of the sun; When the enemy comes in like a flood, The Spirit of the LORD will lift up a standard against him”.
