Between the Hedges (Replay)

February 26, 2008

Good afternoon family.

I pray that all are doing well this fine Tuesday in February. Today, I want to take a minute or two to talk about the hedges that God has placed around out lives (and no Deidra we are not talking about UGA Football :-) ). What I'm talking about is God's protection that he places around His own. let's go to some scripture please.

Job 1:10 "Hast not thou made an hedge about him, and about his house, and about all that he hath on every side? thou hast blessed the work of his hands, and his substance is increased in the land." 
For those who don't quite remember the story, this is the passage where the devil is asking God hasn't he placed a hedge of protection around Job? Then the devil go on to suggest that the very moment God touches all that God has bless Job, he will surely turn on him. So, you can read the rest of the story in its entirety, but lets talk about that hedge for a moment. What is a hedge?

One definition says that a hedge is a line of closely spaced shrubs and bushes, planted and trained in such a way as to form a barrier or to mark the boundary of an area. Look at that. A boundary. You know a territory. You are God's territory and He protects what is His. If you ever notice in life wherever you go, God seems to always have your back? He keeps you from the very mistake that could take you out or end your life or send you down a spiraling abyss of mess for the rest of your life. Not only that, the hedge just ensures that what's inside stays inside and what's outside, stays outside.

I can testify that I just started a new job last week (PRAISE GOD!) and I haven't seen anything that bothered me or disturbed my spirit, but I know that I've met two people already who Loves the Lord. God can place people in your live as well to be your hedge (See Proverbs 27:17). So no matter where you go, a hedge follows you. You just stay in the hedge and everything will be alright.

Be blessed gang and have a good one.
