The Lord is Your Defender (Part 2 of 3)

Our friend Charlie Peacock wrote a wonderful song called “Monkeys At The Zoo” to describe those things in our lives that can wreck our personal walk with The Defender.



You may be a perfect Christian, but I definitely am not.  I know what it is like to catch yourself (or to be caught by The Spirit) acting like a monkey in the zoo. Fortunately, we can repent... receive forgiveness... and continue to live within the protection and defense of the Lord.


My sacrifice [the sacrifice acceptable] to God is a broken spirit; a broken and a contrite heart [broken down with sorrow for sin and humbly and thoroughly penitent], such, O God, You will not despise.

Psalm 51:17 [AMP]


If we [freely] admit that we have sinned and confess our sins, He is faithful and just (true to His own nature and promises) and will forgive our sins [dismiss our lawlessness] and [continuously] cleanse us from all unrighteousness [everything not in conformity to His will in purpose, thought, and action].

1 John 1:9 [AMP]


God is our Defender. He will send His hosts to deliver you from those who rise up to destroy you. What a wonderful promise.  However, it is important to remember that, in order to be a recipient of His protection, we must live the type of life that honors Him.

Food for Thought

  1. Exposure to the Son may prevent burning...

  2. The King of Pop is gone, the King of Comedy is gone, the King of Soul is gone, the King of Rock is gone, but the King of Kings lives on!

  3. When Jesus said “Fret Not,” He wasn’t saying that you shouldn’t play the guitar...
