Untouchable [Day 6]

Updated: Dec 11, 2022

I can't pretend to be joyful when the day is filled with sorrow or anxiety. I can't suppress my thoughts when it seems something is gnawing at me. So I won't pretend today; I won't pretend to have it together. But these are the moments when I need God the most; so although I may not have confidence in many other areas at the present time, I know putting my confidence, trust, and hope in the Lord has never steered me off course.

So instead of the typical intro, I'd like to start and end the devotional in prayer:

Father God, I need you. I pray for forgiveness Lord, and for my heart to be open to receive what has already been done for me. I pray that Your love overshadow all that is not of You, as the power of the Holy Spirit casts it out and removes it from my heart. I pray that Your Word prevail in my heart, and that the Holy Spirit would illuminate to me through Your wisdom and understanding, what I should receive from this message.

I thank You Lord, for You are always faithful and good and Sovereign; the King of all Kings, the Lord of all Lords. May everyone come to know You and praise You and worship Lord God. May our lives be a holy sacrifice to You, Lord God. I thank You for the work of Your hands; the night sky and Your gentle whisper in the wind. I thank You for the gift of salvation; for the work You have already completed, Father God.

In Jesus' mighty name. Amen.


When the Bible mentions the "wicked", I get confused who exactly is the Word addressed to. I believe it's addressing the enemy and the kingdom of darkness; rather than actual people.

Although there is mention (many times) that people are wicked due to our fallen nature; I believe because of Jesus' sacrifice for our sins, He is not referring to believers. (I say this because I used to take it as the Bible was talking about us when we sin or make a mistake, but it's not).

I believe it's referring to the enemy, because he is the ruler of the world; and in the end Jesus has already and will again take the victory over the enemy.

A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you. You will only observe with your eyes and see the punishment of the wicked. Psalms 91:7-8 NIV
A thousand may fall at your side and ten thousand at your right hand, but danger will not come near you. You will only [be a spectator as you] look on with your eyes and witness the [divine] repayment of the wicked [as you watch safely from the shelter of the Most High]. Psalms 91:7-8 AMP
Though a thousand fall at your side, though ten thousand are dying around you, these evils will not touch you. Just open your eyes, and see how the wicked are punished. Psalms 91:7-8 NLT
A thousand may fall at your side, nd ten thousand at your right hand; But it shall not come near you. Only with your eyes shall you look, and see the reward of the wicked. Psalms 91:7-8 NKJV
Though a thousand fall at your side and ten thousand at your right hand, the pestilence will not reach you. You will only see it with your eyes and witness the punishment of the wicked. Psalms 91:7-8 CSB

These verses remind me of the reading in Revelation, when Christ Jesus returns with His holy army, defeats the enemy, and reigns for a thousand years. This is what I envision when I picture the battlefield on that day. That we will witness a thousand fall at Jesus' side, and ten thousand fall at His right hand, but we will not be touched. We will witness for ourselves the punishment of the kingdom of darkness.

How does this pertain to our everyday life? Everything that has happened and is happening, is but a shadow of the things yet to come. To me, this verse represents our authority and power in Christ Jesus. Sin might take over the world, but it cannot touch us. The diseases of the heart: bitterness, anger, unforgiveness, might take hold of the world, but it cannot grab onto us. Even when it seems like darkness has enclosed around us in every direction, we are untouchable in Christ Jesus. Remain in Him and He will remain in us.


- Closing Prayer -

Father God, I thank You for the breath in my lungs. I praise Your Holy Name, Lord God, for you are good and faithful in all that You are. I praise You Lord for Your promises are kept sacred and holy; not a Word You speak comes back empty or void, Father God. I worship You Lord, for choosing those You have chosen, calling those that are called, and walking with us through this journey. Father God, You are true and trustworthy to turn all for our good, for those who trust in You and obey You.

I pray for Your guidance, Lord God, through the power and gentleness of the Holy Spirit. I pray that we be led to the path that is ordained for us; may Your love rest peacefully in our hearts as we sleep tonight, and receive Your rest. I pray for all of Your children to come to You and seek Your Kingdom above all else, then everything else we need will be given to us. I pray, Father God, for the hearts of Your children to cry out to You in a yearning that can only be soothed with Your presence. I pray for those that are lost, that You may break down the walls of their hearts, through their failures and pride and allow them to encounter You, Lord Jesus; find them and bring home to You, Lord. I pray for those whose hearts are troubled, that they receive a calling to lay their burdens down at your feet, in exchange for Your rest. I pray for those who are mourning to be blessed with Your comfort. I pray for those who are seeking You, for the door to be opened. I pray for all that is not of You to be removed, and all that is from You to be made accessible. I pray for all that is hidden within our hearts to be revealed, so that we may grow in You, Lord God. I pray for all that is in the light to shine as a reflection of You. I pray for the power of the Holy Spirit to sanctify us, and wash us clean of any impurity, Lord God. I pray that Your will be done, here on earth as it is in Heaven. May Yours be the kingdom and glory and power, forever and ever.

May Your holy and precious name be exalted and praised by all, Lord God.

In Jesus' name. Amen.
