"Then no harm will befall you, no disaster will come near your tent." NIV
"There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling." KJV
If we are eager and frequent about claiming the promises of God, we are also willing to put aside our own wants and needs so that the Lord God is first in our lives. God's promises are real and they are sure, but there is always a prerequisite on our part. If we put God first in our lives, we can be assured no harm will come to our souls and calamity will not come near where our spirits dwell.
Heavenly Father, how thankful we are for Your precious promises to us. Help us to exercise our faith to turn over all our own wants and problems to You so that we can put You on the throne of our lives. And we will rejoice in claiming your wonderful promises. In Jesus' name, Amen.
