Wednesday April 30, 2014 “Carefully Guarded”

Nehemiah 7:3 “3 And I said to them, “Do not let the gates of Jerusalem be opened until the sun is hot; and while they stand guard, let them shut and bar the doors; and appoint guards from among the inhabitants of Jerusalem, one at his watch station and another in front of his own house.”
Only in the light of day would the city gates be open and shut. This would provide greater safety for God’s people. The borders of the city and the homes were to be guarded. In our day we could have secured borders yet our homes could be invaded by the lies of the enemy through computers, televisions, phones and other devices of communication.
Pray today that we be vigilant in guarding our borders of America and that our citizens be alert also to any works of darkness that threaten our safety and let us also pray that we live with the understanding that we are to guard our homes from mind-polluting ideas of men and the evils of sensuality and vulgarity that influences and corrupts future generations. “Unless the Lord guards the city, the watchmen waits in vain.”
