Seven Marvelous Blessings of Divine Connection as contained in this Psalm
5. Heaven’s Defence.
If heaven is not your shield, you are not properly protected. God shields you from evil, from attacks of the enemy, from witchcraft oppression, from the evil in the land. You need to enthrone the Lord as your shield. One of the attributes of love is that it will compel you to always want to protect the object of your love; it is mixed with special care. If you see the object of your love about to be attacked, what do you do? Naturally, you will take over the battle. No one can fight better than God. The greatest enemy anyone can have is not satan but God. If you are properly connected to God, all your enemies will become God’s enemies and he will defend you from them; he will defend you from their attacks, weapons and evil arrows. He has all it takes to make their weapons useless in their hands. Heaven’s defence is the greatest defence there can ever be. Safety is not the absence of danger; it is the presence of God in the midst of it. That is one of the reasons why many people believe that this Psalm is just a Psalm of divine protection. If you look critically at what produces the blessings, it is simply the connection. The technical aspect of this Psalm is the verse 1 – ‘I will lift up my eyes’, every other thing is as a result of this connection. People see only the flow while overlooking the connection. What produces the flow? If you remove the connection what happens? There will be no flow! Anywhere there is a proper connection, there will be a flow. Anywhere there is a flow, there will be deposits. The deposits are the blessings of the connection.
6. Divine protection and preservation.
He protects and then preserves. Protection and preservation are close but not the same. Preservation is the act of keeping from destruction, harm or any ill; it is like a form of maintenance so that it (the object) does not lose value, diminish or depreciate. It is to keep something in its original form or in good condition while protection is the process of keeping something or someone safe; a form of shield. “He keeps you from all evil and preserves your life”. God keeps us from all evil (not some) and preserves our life. The river of life refreshes. Wherever the river of life flows there will be deposits. This is one of the secrets of freshness. Prov. 4:20-22 says, “My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings. Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart. for they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh.” The word of God is health.
7. Heavenly Escort.
He will give his angels charge. “He keeps his eye upon you as you come and go, and always guards you.” When heaven is your guard, you will have heavenly body guards. You need to recognize this in order to download. You cannot download what you have not recognized – this is the law of recognition. Think about this – heavenly resources are at your disposal because of your connection.
Heavenly Father I worship you. I thank you for your love and care. Thank you for your heavenly resources at my disposal due to my connection to you. I trust you to perfect all that concerns me and work out your plans for my destiny in Jesus name. Amen.
