God keeps a father secure when his family faces enemies
You live in a fallen world. Unfortunately, it is inevitable that at some point, your family will encounter enemies of the Lord. But when your family faces these enemies, you will not face them alone; God will be standing beside you, protecting you and providing shelter in His abiding presence. And the Lord won’t send you into battle unarmed; Ephesians 6 describes the spiritual armor He gives you to put on as you face fiery darts from the evil one. No matter the battles you face, God will guide you and see you safely to the other side. Walk faithfully with the Lord, and He will protect you.
Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the Lord thy God, he it is that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.
The eternal God is thy refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms: and he shall thrust out the enemy from before thee; and shall say, Destroy them.
Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
