“When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned, nor shall the flame scorch you.” Isaiah 43:2
If you’re familiar with the desert, you’ll know it can be a very unforgiving place, not conducive to human habitation. At night, it’s bitterly cold, and in the day it’s terribly hot. This was the kind of harsh environment the children of Israel found themselves in after leaving Egypt. To be under such extreme conditions for the length of time they wandered through the wilderness could have spelt doom for them, but the Lord was with them, and He gave them His own atmosphere. He shielded them as a cloud in the day time, overshadowing them from the scorching heat. And at night, He was to them a pillar of fire, protecting them against the extreme cold. So the children of Israel travelled with their “own atmosphere”; it was the presence of the Holy Spirit (Exodus 13:21)!
If you’re born again, you carry this glorious presence of the Holy Spirit in and with you (John 14:17); it’s the blessing of the new creation. You carry your own atmosphere of the miraculous! It therefore doesn’t matter where you may find yourself or what happens around you. That ‘divine’ atmosphere shields and protects you against the harsh conditions and negative circumstances of life. No wonder Jesus described us—believers—as indestructible when He said in Luke 10:19 “…and nothing shall by any means hurt you.”
You’re divinely shielded and immune from everything that hurts, binds or destroys. Everyone around you may have an infection due to the outbreak of an epidemic, but not you. There’s something that creates an atmosphere of health and victory around you; it’s the indwelling and abiding presence of the Holy Spirit. So refuse to fear. You’re shielded from harm, evil and destruction, Hallelujah!
