Christians have a right to divine protection, but without a working knowledge of God's salvation, it won't be a reality. By trusting God, putting His Word in your heart and continually
confessing it in faith, you release angelic protection over your life
and family.

    2. You don't have to walk in fear when you know God is on your side.

  4. There is a place in Christ Jesus where you can abide in the secret place of God's provision and protection. This place is for those who are obedient
    to Him.
