Then Moses summoned all the elders of Israel and said to them, “Go at once and select the animals for your families and slaughter the Passover lamb. 22 Take a bunch of hyssop, dip it into the blood in the basin and put some of the blood on the top and on both sides of the doorframe. None of you shall go out of the door of your house until morning.23 When the Lord goes through the land to strike down the Egyptians, he will see the blood on the top and sides of the doorframe and will pass over that doorway, and he will not permit the destroyer to enter your houses and strike you down.
The picture above was taken the day we took our son to college. No photographic blooper occurred; the day had humidity so thick that it obscured things that normally would have been clearly visible. You are seeing us through an extremely thick fog of humidity…….for sure that was a “fun” day to move him into his apartment!
When we ask the Lord Jesus Christ into our lives He covers us with His precious blood and we are no longer clearly seen by the enemy of our souls. God instructed the Israelites to cover the doorway of their homes with the blood of the sacrificial lamb just as our souls are covered by the blood of Jesus, our sacrificial Lamb. God did not say that the blood will make life perfect but He did promise that the blood would prevent the destroyer from entering our homes (our souls).
I hear many Christians whine about what is fair and unfair, just and unjust, what they want God to do for them, that life is not what they expected and I too have been just such a whiner at various times during this earthly walk. God did not promise to be our genie and grant our every wish, He did not promise that every day would be perfect in our eyes, BUT He most definitely did promise to protect us from the destroyer of our souls if we but ask Jesus to cover us with His blood, His gift of salvation.
I have felt and experienced the “cloak” of God’s protection. It is amazing and wondrous. It brings an assurance and confidence that this world could never provide. If you have not ask for your “cloak of invisibility” that protects you from the destroyer of your soul, what are you waiting for?! Ask, receive, be free! There is no price to pay……Jesus already paid in full.
Walk in the freedom of His covering today and every day.
