Safe & Secure-Limitations of Deadbolts & Dogs

Psalms Chapter 91
1 He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.

2 I will say of the LORD, [He is] my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.

3 Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, [and] from the noisome pestilence.

4 He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth [shall be thy] shield and buckler.

5 Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; [nor] for the arrow [that] flieth by day;

6 [Nor] for the pestilence [that] walketh in darkness; [nor] for the destruction [that] wasteth at noonday.

7 A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; [but] it shall not come nigh thee.

8 Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.

9 Because thou hast made the LORD, [which is] my refuge, [even] the most High, thy habitation;

10 There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.

11 For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.

12 They shall bear thee up in [their] hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.

13 Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet.

14 Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.

15 He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I [will be] with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.

16 With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.

As i have said before (and probably will again), I am glad for a number of reasons, I was not created a man! There are many responsibilities placed on the head of the household. He is called to guard his family on both spiritual and physical levels.

In this fallen world, there are dangers lurking everywhere, visible and invisible.Let’s pray that our men will have the physical, emotional and spiritual strength to arm through prayer,dangers threatening us. Satan is after the headship of the family, so our men NEED constant covering and intercession.

Deadbolts, weapons, guard dogs are all reasonable safety measures in my estimation; but what an a powerful defense is a praying husband and father, who trusts in the Lord!


Merciful Father




We give You praise, O God

Because we know this world is temporary

Everything that is going on today

Is paving the way for Your glorious and triumphant return

To take us Home

Where threats and danger exist no longer

Wickedness will be bound and confined forever in hell

We give You praise for our men

Our husbands, fathers, sons, grandfathers, uncles, brothers

Who trust in You

Who are obedient

We pray for the men who do not walk with You, Lord

That it be Your will the Holy Spirit will open their hearts to You

It is easy to become enraged, God

At the injustice in this day and time

We pray for the men who are suffering for Your sake

For their deliberate choice to follow You

We pray for families who are faced with separation from one another

As a penalty for not folding under pressure to deny You as their Savior and Lord

As this world moves more and more away from You

Into total depravity

We never know when our husbands could be facing a similar situation

We want to neither live in blissful ignorance, a false sense of security

Nor will we live captivated by fear

For Your Word has told us in Psalm 118:6 “The Lord is on my side; I will not fear; what can man do to me?” and Matthew 10:28 “And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul, but rather Him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.”

Perspective is always helpful, Father. When we grow timid or frightened, please assure our hearts and minds that You, Master, are our Great and Mighty Defender and NO WEAPON formed against YOU will prosper! (Isaiah 57:14).

Please give them all courage, perseverance, grace, strength and wisdom

Our hope is in You, O God

In the Name of the Most High, Jesus

About voicevessel bwc

First, and most importantly, I love Jesus Christ and I trust in Him as my Lord and Savior. I was raised in a Christian home by a godly dad and mom (who planned and had me in July before turning 42 in August), and 5 older siblings. My father passed away when I was 7 and my mother (who went to be with the Lord in 2005 at 81) never remarried. As a child, I was bullied at school, so I did not have many friends. I didn't want to tell my mom this because I knew she had enough worry being a widow at 50. I know what it is like to be lonely. As an adult, God showed me the value of His Friendship and has blessed me, too, with rich relationships with dear friends who also love the Lord. My husband and I (married 31 years as of 2020), have three wonderful, adult children and son-in-law as well as three darling grandchildren. Along with many others, my husband lost his job, but we refuse to be fearful or angry. The Lord has provided for us and we are so thankful for the opportunity to express gratitude through personal contact and occasional memories I share through writing. I believe the Lord has given me a venue to engage with others and a means to share His Word. Thank you for checking out my page. I hope you enjoy what you read. If there is anything positive or insightful in the devotionals (NOT CALLING MY WRITING "INSPIRED" by any means!), I give all credit and glory to Jesus Christ! On the other side of that, when something makes no sense, that's all me
