In the realm of the spirit, those who follow Jesus are  targets of hostile forces of darkness that attempt to carry out the prime directive of stealing, killing and destroying on any of God's people they can reach.

One of the strategies that our Lord uses to shield His people from spiritual attack is to hide them.

As it says in the famous passage of Psalm 91 verse 3 - 6:

Surely he will rescue you from the fowler’s trap, from the destructive plague.

With his feathers he will cover you, and under his wings you will find refuge.

His truth will be your shield and armor. You will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day, nor the plague that prowls in the darkness, nor the pestilence that destroys at noon.

Here, the Lord keeps us out of reach of the enemy by enshrouding us with His wings such that no enemy can cross the barrier that God's pinions provide.

Another way the Lord protects His people as they move around is to camouflage them in such a way that they cannot be detected by the sensors of the enemy. Job 28 verse 7 -  8 cryptically describes a route that is prescribed by wisdom that is not detectable by aerial surveillance nor from those that patrol the landscape.

There is a path which no fowl knoweth, and which the vulture's eye hath not seen: The lion's whelps have not trodden it, nor the fierce lion passed by it.

On these paths, God's people can traverse the realm of the spirit and operate there and when the enemy cannot reach us and when the enemy cannot detect us, we are truly shielded by God and no harm can be visited upon us in the spirit.

Bless the name of the Lord.
