Jesus Christ and You
 
 
Jesus Christ is the Son of the Most High God. His bride is us, believers in Christ Jesus, those of us who love Him. 
 
2CO 11:2 … I promised you to one husband, to Christ, so that I might present you as a pure virgin to Him.
REV 21:9...Come, I will show you the bride, the wife of the Lamb.
EPH 5:31-32 "For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh." This is a profound mystery - but I am talking about Christ and the church.
 
We are His Bride as a collective and ALSO individually. So therefore, it’s ok for us individually to see Him as our Groom, the One we belong to, and the One who belongs to us. “My lover (beloved) is mine and I am his”.Song of Songs (SON) 2:16 
 
In our world, one guy and one girl make a couple.  So imagine this guy, who is ladies’ man, and all the girls are in love with him. And only one of them gets to have him and the rest are left with broken hearts.  In God’s perfect world and the world of infinity – it’s something better. There is Jesus Christ, the perfect “man”, the dream of every girl. And there are many girls who love Him and want Him.SON 1:3 ..therefore do the virgins love thee. (Son 6:1)
 
And the amazing thing is that they ALL can have Him; no more broken hearts. And the reason they all can have Him is because of the way He is. He is eternal and infinite. And He can be with each Bride at the same time. He can multitask. So when He speaks to you, then it’s all of Him, speaking to YOU. And it’s YOU who is special to Him. And it’s YOU whom He loves. And it’s YOU whom He adores and is deeply in love with.He can love and talk to each bride individually all at the same time. Each one feels like she is alone with Him, one on one. 
 
So whenever you read Songs of Solomon (Song of Songs) you can freely attribute everything said to you individually. Christ is a Sprit, who lives in us and has a relationship with each of us individually.(EPH 4:10 He who descended is the very one who ascended higher than all the heavens, in order to fill the whole universe. 1PE 1:11 trying to find out the time and circumstances to which the Spirit of Christ in them…)
 
Jesus Christ is deeply in love with YOU.
 
If you love Him, or if you are earnestly seeking Him (trying to get to know Him), that means you are His Beloved. And look how He praises you, how beautiful you are to Him, how perfect, how desirable is your love. But these words are not strong enough to express what He really feels. They just give a very mild idea. He also calls you “prince’s daughter” – you are royalty, born of a King. 
 
SON 4:9 You have stolen my heart, my sister, my bride; you have stolen my heart with one glance of your eyes,
SON 4:10 How delightful is your love, my sister, my bride! How much more pleasing is your love than wine, and the fragrance of your perfume than any spice!
SON 1:15 How beautiful you are, my darling! Oh, how beautiful! Your eyes are doves.
SON 2:2 Like a lily among thorns is my darling among the maidens.
SON 2:14 My dove in the clefts of the rock, in the hiding places on the mountainside, show me your face, let me hear your voice; for your voice is sweet, and your face is lovely.
SON 7:1 How beautiful your sandaled feet, O prince's daughter!
SON 4:7 All beautiful you are, my darling; there is no flaw in you.
 
DEU 33:12 "Let the Beloved of the LORD rest secure in Him, for He shields him all day long, and the one the LORD loves rests between His shoulders." (rests on His chest)
ISA 62:5 As … as a bridegroom rejoices over his bride, so will your God rejoice over you.
 
Jesus Christ is so in love with you. You stole His heart. But in order to understand HOW MUCH He loves you, you need to understand how much love He has. Imagine a person on earth. The more capable he is of loving somebody, the deeper His love will be for the one he loves.And Paul said that the love of Christ is so deep that it surpasses knowledge. 
EPH 3:18-19 ….how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge…
So, the more love somebody has, the deeper He can love. Jesus Christ has more love for you than you can even imagine. His love is infinite and deeper than ocean. So this is how much He loves you. He has loved us with an everlasting love. His love for us will last forever.We stole His heart. He will always want us and need us as long as we have His heart.
JER 31:3 The LORD appeared to us in the past, saying: "I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with loving-kindness.
 
Sometimes, we go astray and start going our way. But He does not stop loving us. In this verse, He said that even though I am having to keep punishing Ephraim for his misdeeds, my heart is still yearns for him.God’s love doesn’t stop, even if we don’t do what we are supposed to. It grieves Him, it makes Him jealous, but it doesn’t stop Him from loving us.
 
JER 31:20 Is not Ephraim my dear son, the child in whom I delight? Though I often speak against him, I still remember him. Therefore my heart yearns for him; I have great compassion for him," declares the LORD. (word “compassion” could also be translated as “love deeply”. So it could be said: I love him deeply, declares the Lord)
 
Paul said: nothing can separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus. He will love us no matter what. 
ROM 8:38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers,39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
And because the love of our Lord Jesus Christ for us is so great and so deep and so everlasting, He needs us to be faithful to Him. Because what happens if you love somebody but they turn away from you? You hurt! He hurts too when we turn away from Him, when we neglect Him. Because His love is like a blazing fire. The waters cannot quench it. The only thing that can satisfy Him is our return love, our faithful and devoted love. 
 
SON 8:6 Place me like a seal over your heart, like a seal on your arm; for love is as strong as death, its jealousy unyielding as the grave. It burns like blazing fire, like a mighty flame. 7 Many waters cannot quench love; rivers cannot wash it away.
 
Where there is love, there is jealousy. It’s because God in Jesus Christ loves us so much that He is also very jealous about us. When you love somebody, you want them to be yours. If they go to somebody else, that would make you jealous. So that’s why it says in the verse below that the Spirit of Christ envies very much (when we are friends with the world).
 
JAM 4:5 Or do you think Scripture says without reason that the Spirit he caused to live in us envies intensely?
2CO 11:2 I am jealous for you with a godly jealousy. I promised you to one husband, to Christ, so that I might present you as a pure virgin to him.
SON 8:6 .. for love is as strong as death, its jealousy unyielding as the grave
DEU 4:24 For the LORD your God is a consuming fire, a jealous God.
 
Why does He envy? Well, because He needs our return love. He is not at rest until He gets it. His heart is aching until we love Him back. “With just one look of our eyes we stole His heart”. And now we have it. And now His joy is at our mercy. And when we don’t completely surrender ourselves to Him, all He can do is stand afar and just be jealous.
 
Jesus wants His Beloved to come and be with Him:
 
SON 4:8 Come with me from Lebanon, my bride, come with me from Lebanon.
SON 2:10 My lover spoke and said to me, "Arise, my darling, my beautiful one, and come with me.
 
(I think that “Lebanon” is symbolic of the “world”)
 
Jesus Christ is knocking on the door of His Beloved’s heart: open to me my darling and come with me. Because without you it’s like I am cold and wet and lonely.
 
SON 5:2 I slept but my heart was awake. Listen! My lover is knocking: "Open to me, my sister, my darling, my dove, my flawless one. My head is drenched with dew, my hair with the dampness of the night."
 
REV 3:20 Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him, and he with me.
 
But how do we “open the door” and let the Beloved in? By drawing close to Him. By seeking His face. By giving all our time to Him. That’s how we spiritually “open the door” for our Beloved. We have to be clean, because God is holy. We have to make sure we come out of the world, come from Lebanon, and come with Jesus Christ, cling to Him, look at Him only, love Him only.
 
JAM 4:8 Come near to God and he will come near to you.
2CO 6:17 "Therefore come out from them and be separate, says the Lord. Touch no unclean thing, and I will receive you."
JOH 14:21 Whoever has my commands and obeys them, he is the one who loves me. He who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I too will love him and show myself to him."
 
At some point in time, God has decided to speak tenderly to His Bride. Before, he was speaking through the priests and prophets and people were afraid to approach Him.Now, in the day of His favor, he put the Spirit of His Son into our hearts, which cries Abba Father and enables us to come boldly to the throne of grace. GAL 4:6 HEB 4:16 
 
HOS 2:14 "Therefore I am now going to allure her; I will lead her into the desert and speak tenderly to her.
HOS 2:16 "In that day," declares the LORD, "you will call me 'my husband'; you will no longer call me 'my master.'
HOS 2:19 I will betroth you to me forever; HOS 2:23 I will plant her for myself in the land; I will show my love to the one I called 'Not my loved one.'
 
Jesus Christ is revealing Himself to His Bride in a new way: as a love relationship between Lovers. He basically is trying to express this: you slay me my Beloved, you overcome me, you ravish my heart. SON 6:5 Turn your eyes from me; they overwhelm me.
And the Bride has finally understood His love for her and said:SON 7:10 I belong to my lover, and his desire is for me.
Yes, His desire is for us. We are His treasure, His inheritance, His pearl. EXO 19:5 DEU 32:9 Mat 13:44-46
He longs for us.PHI 1:8 God can testify how I long for all of you with the affection of Christ Jesus.
Here are the meanings of the word “long” used in this verse: to long for, desire,  to pursue with love, to lust, harbour forbidden desire. It’s a desire kind of longing. I really really want to be with you, Paul says. My heart is with you. My body is still here. So I am at a conflict. 
 
 
After the first creation (of Adam and Eve) now God has created something new. He doesn’t just want worshippers in the face of His Bride, He wants a Lover. Somebody to become ONE with Him. (Eph 5:31-32) Somebody to share His heart with. Somebody with whom He could rule together with. (Rev 3:21) Somebody who He could delight Himself in and somebody who would just as well delight herself in Him (PSA 37:4). He wants somebody who would say this:
 
SON 2:3 Like an apple tree among the trees of the forest is my lover among the young men. I delight to sit in his shade, and his fruit is sweet to my taste. … I am faint with love. 6 His left arm is under my head, and his right arm embraces me. 8 My lover! Look! Here he comes, leaping across the mountains, bounding over the hills. SON 2:17 Until the day breaks and the shadows flee, turn, my lover, and be like a gazelle or like a young stag on the rugged hills.
10 My lover spoke and said to me, "Arise, my darling, my beautiful one, and come with me.
 
Jesus Christ wants someone who could be walking with Him hand in hand, in a perfect love faithfully.He never asks for more than HE Himself gives. He gave His life for us and He wants us to do the same for Him. He gave all of Himself to us and He wants all of our heart too. He delights in us and He wants us to delight in Him. He loves us more than life, and He wants us to love Him deeply too. He needs us, and He wants us to need Him too. Just read the Song of Solomon, and see how Jesus and His Bride love EACH OTHER in the similar fashion, how they praise each other, how they long for each other. 
Jesus Christ wants somebody who could say: YOU are my portion.  (Ps 119:57, Lam 3:24, Ps 25:10 ) I don’t need any other inheritance. Because we are HIS portion. (Zec 2:12) We are HIS inheritance. 
 
When God was distributing the land among the tribes of Israel, Levites didn’t get any. They lived in/by the temple. And God told them: I am your portion. Levites are the priests. We are also the priests. 1PE 2:9So this is what God was telling us: I am your portion and your inheritance forever. This is an awesome gift that God gave us: Jesus Christ himself. He is our portion. He is our inheritance. And with Him, won’t God give us every thing else? ROM 8:32 HEB 1:2GAL 4:7ROM 8:17Because in Jesus Christ He gave us the best that He had.
 
And that’s why Paul said: I wish you would understand the greatness of the gift that God gave us.
EPH 1:18 I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints,
COL 1:27 To them God has chosen to make known among the Gentiles the glorious riches of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.
ROM 5:2 …, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.
Christ in us – is our hope to partake of the future glory. Christ and Church will be ONE. The Church will become part of the God Head - Jesus is in God the Father, God the Father is in Jesus, the church is in Jesus and Jesus is in us. 
JOH 17:23 I in them and you in me, all being perfected into one.
 
Here are a few lines from different songs that God has sent me, and how they describe His feelings:
 
Darling did you know I dream about life together knowing it will be forever
I wanna be the eyes that look deep into your soul because I need you more than you could know
How sweet it is just knowing that all your love is mine.
You fill my heart with your sweet love so divine You make me happy 'cos your love is mine.
You thrill me you delight me, you please me, you excite me
 
YOU are His treasure. YOU are something He dreamed about and it’s like you walked out of His dreams and became a reality. YOU are His cherished possession.
 
EPH 1:14 …redemption of those who are God's possession...
EXO 19:5 ..you will be my treasured possession. Although the whole earth is mine, 6 you will be for me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation.' 1PE 2:9
 
And it’s YOU that He wants to take care of, cherish, and “to have and to hold”. 
1PE 5:7 Cast all your anxiety on him because He cares for you.
EPH 5:29 …but he feeds and cares for it, just as Christ does the church
ISA 40:11 He tends his flock like a shepherd: He gathers the lambs in his arms and carries them close to his heart; he gently leads those that have young.
PSA 23:1 The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not be in want. 2 He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, 3 he restores my soul. He guides me in paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
DEU 1:31 … There you saw how the LORD your God carried you, as a father carries his son, (Whatever applies to Israel is also applied to church spiritually)
 
Some of these below are not found in the Bible verses in such detailed description (that I could find). But God did tell them to me. So I am just passing along the message: His love for you is endless, it’s deeper than oceans. His adoration for you is such great that you can’t even imagine. He loves everything about YOU (your soul), because it was made perfect. (HEB 10:14) He is your secret admirer. He loves to stare at you and He loves all the little things that you do, that make you YOU. He says that YOU ARE PERFECT. He said that YOU were made for HIM. That you are perfect for Him. You are exactly what He wanted. You thrill Him. He is enthralled by your beauty. (PSA 45:11) And He is envious of others getting your attention. You are always on His mind and He always and forever longs to be close to you. He wants you more and more. He NEEDS you, He needs your love. He is not complete (in His heart) without your love, because “you stole my heart, my sister, my darling” – He said. We are holding His heart. And until we are together, we are both incomplete. We both NEED each other, need each other’s love. Like David said: PSA 42:2 My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When can I go and meet with God?PSA 63:1 O God, you are my God, earnestly I seek you; my soul thirsts for you, my body longs for you, ISA 26:9 My soul yearns for you in the night; in the morning my spirit longs for you.
 
Before you can fall in love with somebody, you have to get to know them. And so you need to study the Bible to get to know God in the face of Jesus Christ. 
 
One guy said he had a near death experience. And he met Jesus. And he felt these emanating from Him: Goodness, power, love, wisdom/knowledge.
1JO 4:8 Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.
PSA 25:10 All the ways of the LORD are loving and faithful for those who keep the demands of his covenant.
DEU 32:4 He is the Rock, his works are perfect, and all his ways are just. A faithful God who does no wrong, upright and just is he.
PSA 66:3 Say to God, "How awesome are your deeds! So great is your power that your enemies cringe before you.
COL 2:3 Christ, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.
PSA 25:7 .. according to your love remember me, for you are good, O LORD.Good and upright is the LORD; therefore he instructs sinners in his ways.
PSA 34:8 Taste and see that the LORD is good;
PSA 86:5 You are forgiving and good, O Lord, abounding in love to all who call to you.
PSA 145:8-9 The LORD is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and rich in love.  The LORD is good to all; he has compassion on all he has made.
 
 
He doesn’t like to punish. He would rather show compassion. 
ISA 30:18 Yet the LORD longs to be gracious to you; he rises to show you compassion. … How gracious he will be when you cry for help! As soon as he hears, he will answer you.
2CO 1:3 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort,
HOS 11:8 "How can I give you up, Ephraim? How can I hand you over, Israel? My heart is changed within me; all my compassion is aroused. 9 I will not carry out my fierce anger, nor will I turn and devastate Ephraim. For I am God, and not man - the Holy One among you. I will not come in wrath.
 
2PE 3:9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
 
God’s judgments are redemptive. When people are in trouble they turn to God. Of course, only good people do that. The wicked ones keep doing wickedness, no matter whether grace or judgment is shown to them.
 
ISA 26:9 When your judgments come upon the earth, the people of the world learn righteousness. 10 Though grace is shown to the wicked, they do not learn righteousness; even in a land of uprightness they go on doing evil and regard not the majesty of the LORD.
 
EZE 18:23 Do I take any pleasure in the death of the wicked? declares the Sovereign LORD. Rather, am I not pleased when they turn from their ways and live?
He has to punish them and destroy them, because they cannot change. They will always be wicked. 
When Jesus was coming up to Jerusalem, He wept. He wept over the people that were rebellious and disobedient – because He still loved them and He knew that they would have to be destroyed.Lk 19:41, ?at 23:37
 
God guided Israel like a little child, shielded him, protected him and carried him, but the people turned away from God. (not all, of course, there are always a few righteous, which the Lord reserves for Himself like He told Elijah. 1 King 19:14,18)
 
DEU 32:4 He is the Rock, his works are perfect, and all his ways are just. A faithful God who does no wrong, upright and just is he. 5 They have acted corruptly toward him; to their shame they are no longer his children, but a warped and crooked generation. 6 Is this the way you repay the LORD, O foolish and unwise people? Is he not your Father, your Creator, who made you and formed you? 7 Remember the days of old; …10 In a desert land he found him, in a barren and howling waste. He shielded him and cared for him; he guarded him as the apple of his eye, 11 like an eagle that stirs up its nest and hovers over its young, that spreads its wings to catch them and carries them on its pinions.
 
He loves to please us (but we have to be spiritually ready in order for the gifts not to be a trap to us, and in order for us to desire something that is not harmful to our soul).
PSA 37:4 Delight yourself in the LORD and he will give you the desires of your heart.
PSA 84:11 For the LORD God is a sun and shield; the LORD bestows favor and honor; no good thing does he withhold from those whose walk is blameless.
 
MAT 11:29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.
ZEC 9:9 See, your king comes to you, gentle and riding on a donkey.
 
ISA 40:11 He tends his flock like a shepherd: He gathers the lambs in his arms and carries them close to his heart; he gently leads those that have young.
 
1KI 19:12 After the earthquake came a fire, but the LORD was not in the fire. And after the fire came a gentle whisper.13 When Elijah heard it, he pulled his cloak over his face and went out and stood at the mouth of the cave. Then a voice said to him, "What are you doing here, Elijah?"
 
One person had a dream from the Lord. She was dreaming that she was talking to this man, who seemed very confident in himself, like he was a King or something. He had the power under control. But yet, he did not put on airs, he was dressed as a rancher, ready to get to work and get his hands dirty if needed.
LUK 22:27 For who is greater, the one who is at the table or the one who serves? Is it not the one who is at the table? But I am among you as one who serves.
 
We have a King who humbles Himself and serves.
 
LUK 12:37 It will be good for those servants whose master finds them watching when he comes. I tell you the truth, he will dress himself to serve, will have them recline at the table and will come and wait on them.
 
PHI 2:6-8  Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped but made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient to death - even death on a cross!
 
Here I want to mention something else: just because God loves us so much, it doesn’t mean that He will remove all our sufferings here on Earth. It’s written that it was given to us to suffer for Him and that we will share in the glory of Christ if we also share in His sufferings.  1PE 4:13 2CO 1:6  (God loved His Son most of all, and yet also allowed Him to suffer as well.) Sufferings are necessary (God knows all the reasons, but we don’t always). So we have to go through them. But what God DOES promise is that He will be right there with us, in the midst of it. He will be carrying our load if it gets too heavy. He will wipe away the tears (or kiss away). He will encourage us and comfort us. He said that it hurts Him when we are hurt. So every time we are hurting, He hurts too.
 
2CO 1:5 For just as the sufferings of Christ flow over into our lives, so also through Christ our comfort overflows.
 
ISA 43:2 When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.
…4 Since you are precious and honored in my sight, and because I love you, I will give men in exchange for you, and people in exchange for your life. 5 Do not be afraid, for I am with you;
 
Here are a few lines from different songs which God gave me to show His feelings:
I'm here to wipe away the tears
I will be your friend
I'll pick you up when your feeling low
I’ll be the shelter in your rain
I’ll help carry the load if you’re willing to share
My heart is reaching out more than you can know
 
When we are going through a spiritual battle, we are not alone. Jesus Christ is right there with us. He lets us go through as much as we need to and then He steps in and helps us. (Sometimes, we have to call Him to come and help, and He does then.) One time He told me: I know that you have to go through some things, but I don’t like it. I can’t wait for the day when you only have to feel joy and happiness. The other time, when I was going through a battle, He sent me a song in which it said: just stand, and wait, and God will step in and help you. And it happened just like He said. He did come and help me. 
PSA 23:4 Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.
 
Somebody had a dream where in one part of it  Jesus and angel mentioned the end times and what Christians will have to go through. Jesus had tears in His eyes and said: yes, hard times are coming. But I will love them, I will comfort them, I will be with them even in the midst of it all, I will act, and I will win.
 
A Word from the Lord came to one person. And in it God said:  “you are going through labor pains. But I am with you. Don’t you feel my heart beating close to yours? I am holding you in my arms and I am wiping a sweat of your brow. Rest in me my Love, between your labor pains.”
 
Know how much He loves you, how gentle He is, how much in love with you, and rest in His love. Rest also in the knowledge that He will keep you strong until the end. He will make sure you won’t fall. Here are some songs which He gave me that confirm that, and also some verses from the Bible.
 
PSA 55:22 Cast your cares on the LORD and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous fall.
PSA 37:23 If the LORD delights in a man's way, he makes his steps firm; 24 though he stumble, he will not fall, for the LORD upholds him with his hand.
Nothing can separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus. (Rom 8)
JOH 10:29 My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all; no one can snatch them out of my Father's hand.
ISA 41:10 So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
1 Co 1:8 He will keep you strong to the end, so that you will be blameless on the day of our Lord Jesus Christ.
 
Here are a few lines from different songs which God gave me to show His feelings:
Our love will always be. Because what we share together can weather any storm
We'll get through I promise you 
My Love, I will keep you by my power alone
Never, never gonna give you up.I’m never, ever gonna stop, not the way I feel about you Girl, I just can’t live without you
You can put your faith in me I will never set you free With love beside us nothing can divide us!
And everybody says we won't last but they don't know: that for my whole life through I'll keep on loving you You're such a part of me, I could never let you go

Jesus Christ is our Guide. He leads us in the paths of righteousness. PSA 23:3
And here are some lines from the songs:
I will make you see all the things that your heart needs to know
Darling let me be your Guide
But You say let it go, You say let it go (meaning: do not strive, do not worry about how you will make it)
And please don't fight These hands that are holding you (sometimes God wants to do something in our life, to guide us to eternity, and we don’t want to comply, we start fighing his guidance)
Be still and know I am your God (do not worry, do not strive, He’ll take care of things, entrust your way to Him)
 
PRO 3:5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; 6 in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.
PSA 32:8 I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you and watch over you.
PSA 25:12 Who, then, is the man that fears the LORD? He will instruct him in the way chosen for him.
PSA 37:5 Commit your way to the LORD; trust in him and he will do this: 6 He will make your righteousness shine like the dawn, the justice of your cause like the noonday sun.
 
God is constantly watching us and protecting us
 
PSA 32:8 … I will counsel you and watch over you.
PSA 121:7 The LORD will keep you from all harm - he will watch over your life; 8 the LORD will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore.
(God will keep you from all harm that He himself did not determine that you will have to go through. If it’s something that He thinks you need to go through, then the verse “it was given to us to suffer for Him” applies. But if it’s something that’s not good for you, He will keep you from it. Like He said here: REV 3:10 Since you have kept my command to endure patiently, I will also keep you from the hour of trial that is going to come upon the whole world to)
 
JER 24:6 My eyes will watch over them for their good,
 
PSA 139:4 Before a word is on my tongue you know it completely, O LORD. 5 You hem me in - behind and before; you have laid your hand upon me.
 
ISA 27:3 I, the LORD, watch over it; I water it continually. I guard it day and night so that no one may harm it.
 
DEU 33:12 "Let the Beloved of the LORD rest secure in him, for he shields him all day long, and the one the LORD loves rests between his shoulders." 
 
One person had a dream: the children of God were in His hand (sitting there, like little chicks,) and God has covered them with His other hand. So that when there was a storm outside, they were mostly protected. They did get wet, but they were ok.
 
Another person had a dream where there was an exteme cold coming during this night. And anyone who was not inside this house, would die from cold. So the people in the house were safe. Well, this house symbolizes: being in God, clinging to Him. Whoever hides Himself in God, will be protected from the evil one. 
PSA 32:7 You are my hiding place;
PSA 91:1 He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.4 He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
… 9 If you make the Most High your dwelling - even the LORD, who is my refuge - 10 then no harm will befall you, no disaster will come near your tent. 11 For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways;
12 they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.
Somebody has said that “close your doors” means close the doors to your heart and don’t let anything of the world in, and you will feel at peace and calm in times of trouble. 
ISA 26:20 Go, my people, enter your rooms and shut the doors behind you; hide yourselves for a little while until his wrath has passed by. 21 See, the LORD is coming out of his dwelling to punish the people of the earth for their sins.
 
In one of the songs which God gave me, it shows just how much Jesus is willing to give for us. 
 
You can sleep in my arms, you don't have to explain
When your heart's crying out, baby, whisper my name
'Cause I've reached out for you when the thunder is crashing up above
When the storm rises up, when the shadows descend
Ev'ry beat of my heart, ev'ry day without end
I will stand like a rock, I will bend till I break
Till there's no more to give, if that's what it takes
I will risk everything, I will fight, I will bleed
I will lay down my life, if that's what you need
Ev'ry second I live, that's the promise I make
Baby, that's what I'll give, if that's what it takes
I will lay down my heart, my body, my soul
I will hold on all night and never let go
Ev'ry second I live, that's the promise I make
Baby, that's what I'll give, if that's what it takes

EPH 5:2 …Christ loved us and gave Himself up for us
1JO 3:16 This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us.
JOH 15:13 Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends. 14 You are my friends if you do what I command.
 

Jesus Christ is our Advocate, He is our Priest, He is standing between God and us, interceeding for us.
 
1TI 2:5 For there is one God and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus,
 
ROM 8:26 In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express. … 28 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.
