National Geographic’s, cites that the Earth’s atmosphere is composed of about 78 percent nitrogen, 21 percent oxygen, 0.9 percent argon, and 0.1 percent other gases. Trace amounts of carbon dioxide, methane, water vapor, and neon are some of the other gases that make up the remaining 0.1 percent. The atmosphere is divided into five different layers, based on temperature. It protects life on Earth by creating pressure allowing for liquid water to exist on the Earth’s surface, absorbing ultraviolet light and solar radiation.
So too God created an atmosphere around each born again believer, namely Grace 78%, God’s Love 21%, 0.9% our actions and 0.1% other pollutants that cause damage to the spiritual and emotional surroundings. The atmosphere God created around the believer has a blood covering of protection that absorbs the onslaught of the spiritual world of which we are not aware of.
Paul says in 2Corinthians 10:4 & 5 The weapons we use in our fight are not the world’s weapons but God’s powerful weapons, which we use to destroy strongholds. We destroy false arguments; we pull down every proud obstacle that is raised against the knowledge of God; we take every thought captive and make it obey Christ.
Dear Father, thank you for the atmosphere of protection that you have put in place around me. Also, for absorbing the shock that could hurt my emotions, my mind and even my spirit. Protect me and my loved ones by the blood of your Son, Jesus Christ and guide me by your blessed Holy Spirit in Jesus’ name Amen. Dr Cliff Ferguson – Shalom Centurion.
