31 Jesus-Benefits: Surrounded

At first glance, you might say today’s benefit is similar to yesterday’s:

His protection.

“The angel of the LORD encamps around those who fear Him” is a verse that’s come to mean a lot to me since I’ve started travelling on public transport. Standard procedure is for a member of staff to take me to a seat, and leave me there until it’s time to board my next train. In an unfamiliar station, it sounded like there were a couple of drunk guys nearby. They were pretty loud and I felt vulnerable, but with just my white cane and not a clue where to go, I couldn’t walk away, and into my head came that verse: “The angel of the LORD encamps around those who fear Him.”

I thought about it more afterwards – this being surrounded: In front, behind, to the left and to the right.

What’s that?

It’s a cross-shape. The LORD surrounds us with a cross for our protection.
