God's promises to all believers in Christ are Yea and Amen (2 Corinthians 1:20), which means that whatsoever God promises will be fulfilled. Isaiah 26:1-3 reads, "According to Isaiah 26:1-3:
“On that day, throughout the land of Judah, this hymn shall be sung; We have a strong city; God will appoint salvation for walls and bulwarks. Allow the noble country that upholds the truth to enter through the gates. Because he has faith in thee, thou wilt keep him in perfect serenity as long as his thoughts is fixed on thee.”
However, there are a few conditions that must be met before a person can take advantage of this kindness. You must first be reborn (John 3:3,5). Second, faith necessitates believing every word that comes from God's lips. You can show your belief in God's word by obeying it. “But be doers of the word, not merely hearers, lest you be deceived....but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed,” James 1:22-25.
When a person obeys God's will as revealed in His word, he has faith in the Lord's capacity to work miracles. Are you familiar with Daniel's story? After being thrown into the lions' den, the king went early in the morning to confirm that Daniel's God is great and powerful. He enquired, "O Daniel, servant of the living God, is thy God, whom thou servest consistently, capable of saving thee from the lions?" (NASB Daniel 6:20) Rather than the lions roaring back at the king, Daniel replied triumphantly. “......My God has sent his angel, and the lions' mouths have been stopped, so that they have not injured me: forasmuch as innocency was found in me before him; and I have done no evil before thee, O king.” (NASB Daniel 6:21-22) Daniel's experience was in line with the Lord's message in Isaiah 43:2, which reads:
“I will be with thee when thou passest over the floods; and when thou passest over rivers, they shall not overflow thee; and when thou walkst through fire, thou shalt not be burned, nor shall the flame kindle upon thee.”
However, keep in mind that Daniel was able to benefit from God's protection because he led a righteous life. It is clear from Isaiah 59:1-2 that sin prevents God from rescuing a person. From this day forward, divine protection will be yours in Jesus' name. Make certain, however, that you are remaining in the inner region of the Most High in righteousness (Psalm 91:1-3).
