The Awesome Blessing of Being Hemmed in By God's Love


You hem me in, behind and before… Psalm 139:5 


What It Means To Be Hemmed In By God's Love

When God hem’s us in it is literally to be surrounded by the Lord, our fortress and our defense.

“As though we were caught in an ambush, or besieged by an army which has wholly 
beleaguered the city walls, we are surrounded by the Lord. God has set us where we be, 
and beset us wherever we be. Behind us there is God recording our sins, or in grace 
blotting out the remembrance of them; and before us there is God foreknowing all our deeds, and providing for all our wants.” 
Spurgeon, The Treasury of David


"Our lives are totally encompassed by God. He’s got you surrounded. There are no openings for anything to come through to you that is not a part of the ultimate  purpose and will of God. This is what it means when God says He will keep you form all evil."


"I look back and I see the hand of God on my life. I look ahead and I see God's plan. And right now I feel the hand of God upon me. You see, I'm surrounded. My past, present, and my future is all wrapped up with God. "You've beset me behind and before, and Your hand is upon me."           

Question for you: What peace do you have knowing that, if you've confessed Christ as your personal Lord and Savior, you are hemmed in by God's love?
