ASK FOR YOUR HEDGE OF PROTECTION
Satan stated to the Lord..."Have you not put a hedge of protection around him and his household and everything he has?" It is common for Christians to pray a "hedge of protection" around a family member, or friends...this is what it means.
A hedge of thorn bushes would be too dense to crawl through, too sharp to chew through, and too deep for all but the most determined leopard to jump over. A hedge would also be a deterrent to sheep and goats seeking to escape their pen. As Satan is compared to a "lion looking for someone to devour" (I Peter 5:8), a thorn hedge is an appropriate metaphor for the protection God gives His followers.
Have you asked for your hedge of protection today? Ask for that that same hedge that protected Job to protect you, your family, and friends. God gives us (Ephesians 6:13-17), putting on the full armor of God. We can and should ask for the hedge of protection, too. There is nothing wrong with asking for protection from our enemies!! It worked for Job and that same hedge will work for you, too.
