Don’t Break Your Spiritual Hedge. “Then the Lord said to Satan, "Have you considered My servant Job, that there is none like him on the earth, a blameless and upright man, one who fears God and shuns evil?" So Satan answered the Lord and said, "Does Job fear God for nothing? Have You not made a hedge around him, around his household, and around all that he has on every side?” Satan had noted the hedge that God had put around Job and everything he had.
Job might not have known anything about the hedge but Satan could see it and knew there was nothing he could do to him as long as it was intact. This means that every time Satan tried to attack Job, he found that there was a certain covering around him that held him back. This is also true for every child of God. However, when God gave Satan permission and in so doing removed the hedge, calamities befell Job that no one could explain.
Job’s experiences give a clear hint of what a spiritual hedge is and what it does. When the spiritual hedge was removed from Job’s life, none of his servants was able to protect either the property or their own lives. We need a spiritual hedge from above over our lives, families, cities and nation because unless the Lord guards our cities or nation, those who guard it do so in vain! (Psalm 127:1).
As we pursue your destiny, we are assured of God’s protection. We must not break the hedge through sin and rebellion. May your Prayer ask the Lord to help you maintain your spiritual hedge.
