God Is Our Defender - Scriptures

I thank You, Lord, You have put a hedge of protection around every person reading this. I pray for prosperity and blessings on them. I pray you bless them, keep them, and Your face to shine upon them.

God Being Our Defender

Psalm 91:11 (AMP)

For He will command His angels in regard to you, to protect and defend and guard you in all your ways [of obedience and service].

It will become a sign and a witness to the Lord of hosts in the land of Egypt; for they will cry to the Lord because of oppressors, and He will send them a Savior, a [Great] Defender, and He will rescue them.

Isaiah 37:35 (AMP)

‘For I will defend this city to save it, for My own sake and for the sake of My servant David.’”

Isaiah 38:6 (AMP)

I will rescue you and this city from the hand of the king of Assyria; and I will defend this city [Jerusalem].”’

Joel 2:18 (AMP)

Then the Lord will be jealous for His land [ready to defend it since it is rightfully and uniquely His] and will have compassion on His people [and will spare them].

Zechariah 9:15 (AMP)

The Lord of hosts shall defend and protect them; and they will devour [the enemy] and trample down the slingstones [that have missed their mark], and they will drink [of victory] and be boisterous as with wine; and they shall be filled like sacrificial bowls [used to catch the blood], drenched like the corners of the [sacrificial] altar.

Zechariah 12:8 (AMP)

In that day the Lord will defend the people of Jerusalem, and the one who is impaired among them in that day [of persecution] will become [strong and noble] like David; and the house of David will be like God, like the Angel of the Lord [who is] before them.

Luke 18:7-8

And will not [our just] God defend and avenge His elect [His chosen ones] who cry out to Him day and night? Will He delay [in providing justice] on their behalf? I tell you that He will defend and avenge them quickly. However, when the Son of Man comes, will He find [this kind of persistent] faith on the earth?” 

Luke 21:12-15

“But before all these things, they will lay their hands on you and will persecute you, turning you over to the synagogues and prisons, and bringing you before kings and governors for My name’s sake. This will be a time and an opportunity for you to testify [about Me]. So make up your minds not to prepare beforehand to defend yourselves; for I will give you [skillful] words and wisdom which none of your opponents will be able to resist or refute. 

We Are to Defend 

Isaiah 1:17 (AMP)

Learn to do good. Seek justice, rebuke the ruthless, defend the fatherless, plead for the [rights of the] widow [in court].

Jeremiah 22:15-16 (AMP)

“Do you think that you become a king because you have much more cedar [in your palace than Solomon]? Did not your father [Josiah], as he ate and drank, do just and righteous acts [being upright and in right standing with God]? Then all was well with him. “He defended the cause of the afflicted and needy; Then all was well. Is that not what it means to know Me?” Says the Lord.

We Don’t Need to Defend Ourselves 

Luke 12:11-12 (AMP)

"When they bring you before the synagogues and the magistrates and the authorities, do not be worried about how you are to defend yourselves or what you are to say; for the Holy Spirit will teach you in that very hour what you ought to say.”

Luke 21:13-15 (AMP)

This will be a time and an opportunity for you to testify [about Me]. So make up your minds not to prepare beforehand to defend yourselves; for I will give you [skillful] words and wisdom which none of your opponents will be able to resist or refute.

God Protects Us

Numbers 6:24-25 (AMP)

The Lord bless you, and keep you [protect you, sustain you, and guard you]; The Lord make His face shine upon you [with favor], and be gracious to you [surrounding you with lovingkindness]

Deuteronomy 1:30-31 (AMP)

'The Lord your God who goes before you will fight for you Himself, just as He did for you in Egypt before your [very] eyes, and in the wilderness where you saw how the Lord your God carried and protected you, just as a man carries his son, all along the way which you traveled until you arrived at this place.’

Deuteronomy 32:10-12 (AMP)

“He found him in a desert land, in the howling wasteland of a wilderness; He kept circling him, He took care of him, He protected him as the apple of His eye. As an eagle that protects its nest, That flutters over its young, He spread out His wings and took them, He carried them on His pinions."

Job 1:10 (AMP)

Have You not put a hedge [of protection] around him and his house and all that he has, on every side? You have blessed the work of his hands [and conferred prosperity and happiness upon him], and his possessions have increased in the land.
