Our protection in Christ is a privilege. God loves us and He watches over His own. God is not missing in action, He is always with us. God is not just standing by in the shadows watching His family get beat up and bruised. God said stand still and see the salvation of the Lord. God says step aside, you'll not have to fight in this battle, the battle is Mine (my own paraphrasing). Our God is the Lord of Host. God is not a coward, He is the Almighty God. He is our Rock and our Fortress. He is our Conquering King! You need never be afraid, for the Lord our God is with you, He will protect and provide for you! Just dwell in Him.
Dwell defined: . to live somewhere.
Other words that mean the same as to dwell; have your home, inhabit settle.
Dwell with God and you'll always be safe!
Psalms 91 (AMP)
HE WHO [a]dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall remain stable and fixed under the shadow of the Almighty [Whose power no foe can withstand]. I will say of the Lord, He is my Refuge and my Fortress, my God; on Him I lean and rely, and in Him I [confidently] trust! For [then] He will deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the deadly pestilence. [Then] He will cover you with His pinions, and under His wings shall you trust and find refuge; His truth and His faithfulness are a shield and a buckler. You shall not be afraid of the terror of the night, nor of the arrow (the evil plots and slanders of the wicked) that flies by day, Nor of the pestilence that stalks in darkness, nor of the destruction and sudden death that surprise and lay waste at noonday. A thousand may fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand, but it shall not come near you. Only a spectator shall you be [yourself inaccessible in the secret place of the Most High] as you witness the reward of the wicked. Because you have made the Lord your refuge, and the Most High your dwelling place, There shall no evil befall you, nor any plague or calamity come near your tent. For He will give His angels [especial] charge over you to accompany and defend and preserve you in all your ways [of obedience and service]. They shall bear you up on their hands, lest you dash your foot against a stone.
You shall tread upon the lion and adder; the young lion and the serpent shall you trample underfoot. Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore will I deliver him; I will set him on high, because he knows and understands My name [has a personal knowledge of My mercy, love, and kindness--trusts and relies on Me, knowing I will never forsake him, no, never]. He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him. With long life will I satisfy him and show him My salvation.
