It shall not come near you

A thousand may fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand; but it shall not come hear you. Psalm 91:7

Have you ever when visiting your doctor or had a conversation with your insurance agent and they ask you this question? “Do you have a family history of cancer?” If you answer yes, they will probably tell you that you might be at risk to get cancer also.  

Now, if you are without God, you would probably agree with them and start worrying about your health. But you are not without God. I remember a song we use to sing many years ago that was written by a man named Mylon Lefevre. It was titled “Without Him”.  

The lyric of that song says, “Without Him, I would be nothing. Without Him, I’d surely fail. Without Him, I would be drifting, like a ship without a sail”. That is a very good analogy of a life without God. A ship without a sail. In other words, life has no purpose. It’s just going the way of the current wave. No true guidance or direction.
 
But, praise God, we’re not without Him. In fact, His Word tells you, “A thousand may fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand; but it shall not come near you.” Therefore, even if you have a family history of cancer, and your family members have died of cancer, you can still have the confidence to declare that it will not come near you. Hallelujah.
 
Friends, God wants you to know that even though you are IN this world, you are not OF this world. You belong to Him and because He is on your side, “He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the noisome pestilence” (Psalm 91:3).
 
Even when it comes to generational diseases, you can boldly declare, “That disease stops here,” because you have God and His Word. And when you believe God and His Word, you will see His promises come to pass for you. Again, notice our text. “A thousand may fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand; but IT SHALL NOT COME NEAR YOU”. What a wonderful promise to behold.
