The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear Him, and delivers them. Psalms 34:7
Elisha's servant was terrified because a great army surrounded the city. Elisha said, “Do not be afraid, for those who are with us are more than those who are with them.” Then Elisha prayed that God would open the eyes of the servant. God did and the servant saw that the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha. 2 Kings 6:15-16.
Psalm 34:7 tells us that God's angels encamp around those of us who love Him. What a comfort to know that heavenly messengers surround us with God's love and protection — many more who are for us than those who are against us.
Thank you, Gracious Lord, for Your abiding word. When we are afraid, open our eyes to Your angels who encamp around us. Show us the truth of Your great power and enduring love. In Jesus' name, Amen.
