For He shall give His angels charge over you, to keep you in all your ways. In their hands they shall bear you up, lest you dash your foot against a stone. Psalm 91:11-12
Are you aware that angels are surrounding us and protecting us today, because God has given them charge over us to do just that very thing. When we choose to make Him our habitation, He charges His angels to watch over us and to surround us with His divine protection. Now, did you know that Psalm 91:11-12 was quoted by the devil when he tried to tempt our Lord Jesus?
He brought Jesus to the pinnacle of the temple and then attempted to quote Psalm 91:11-12. To this Jesus replied, “It is written again, “You shall not tempt the Lord your God” (Matthew 4:5-7). This is the only time in the Bible where the devil is recorded quoting Scripture.
But the devil deliberately misquoted verse 11. The devil misquotes the Bible because he is the father of lies. Verse 11 actually reads, “For He shall give His angels charge over you, TO KEEP YOU IN ALL YOUR WAYS.”
The devil left that part out. I believe he did so because of what Proverbs 3:6-7 says. It says, “IN ALL YOUR WAYS acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths. Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the LORD and depart from evil.”
You see, the devil didn’t want to say the words “TO KEEP YOU IN ALL YOUR WAYS” because that would be almost the same as reminding believers of Proverbs 3:6-7 which says to acknowledge God in all your ways.
So he conveniently left out that whole portion of the verse. But praise the Lord, we know that this is what the Lord has promised. “For He shall give His angels charge over you, TO KEEP YOU IN ALL YOUR WAYS”.
Our part is to simply acknowledge Him in all our ways, and He shall direct our paths, protecting us along the way. Glory to God.
