When the enemy is trying to destroy or kill you God will always provide a way of escape to protect you.
Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Deuteronomy 31:6
Just like we see in Matthew 2:6 ‘But you, Bethlehem, in the land of Judah, Are not the least among the rulers of Judah; For out of you shall come a Ruler Who will shepherd My people Israel.’ when Jesus was declared that He was going to be the ruler over Israel, King Herod didn’t like that very much. He was so mad that there was going to be a new ruler born that was going to be greater and more powerful than Him and His name is Jesus.
As we continue to see in Matthew 2:16,When Herod realized that he had been outwitted by the Magi, he was furious, and he gave orders to kill all the boys in Bethlehem and its vicinity who were two years old and under, in accordance with the time he had learned from the Magi. King Herod ordered the death of all the male children from 2 years old and below because he wanted to kill Jesus. Inspite of King Herod’s plan to kill Jesus.
God had other plans of Escape for Jesus where He would protect Him from over all King Herod’s wrath and death. Mathew 2:13-15, An angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream. “Get up,” he said, “take the child and his mother and escape to Egypt. Stay there until I tell you, for Herod is going to search for the child to kill him.”So he got up, took the child and his mother during the night and left for Egypt, where he stayed until the death of Herod.
Through the passage above that we have read in the Book of Matthew 2, God wants to remind you that when the enemy is out to hurt you, destroy you and even kill you that He always has a plan of escape to protect you from harm.
I don’t know what situation you are facing right now but this I know when you call on Jesus, He will rescue you from the pit of Hell and death and He will make sure that your enemies won’t hurt you. He died for you and redeemed you from the devil’s traps and called you His own.
God is our refuge and strength,
an ever-present help in trouble.
God is your hiding place. Every time you run to him you will be protected.
You are my hiding place;
you will protect me from trouble
and surround me with songs of deliverance. Psalm 32:7
God is your shield and protector in times of trouble even when you don’t see Him, He is working behind the scenes on your behalf. Don’t be dismayed, discouraged and scared and remember you are safe in God’s Loving Arms. God is at the forefront of your battle, fighting for you defending you and covering you on every side. Do not be afraid His blood was she’d to be your covering always as long as you believe and abide in Christ Jesus.
He will not allow your foot to slip; He who keeps you will not slumber. The LORD will guard your going out and your coming in From this time forth and forever. Behold, He who keeps Israel Will neither slumber nor sleep.The LORD is your keeper; The LORD is your shade on your right hand. The sun will not smite you by day, Nor the moon by night. The LORD will protect you from all evil; He will keep your soul.
