“Trembling brother, you would feel perfectly safe if you had your eyes opened to see the companies of angels that surround you. You would rejoice in your security if you saw horses of fire and chariots of fire encompassing you.
But such defenses are as nothing compared with those which are always around you. God is better than myriads of chariots. ‘The chariots of God are twenty thousand, even thousands of angels’; but the glory of it is that ‘the Lord is among them, as in Sinai.’ God is with every one of His children. We dwell in Him, and He dwells in us. ‘I in them, and they in me,’ says Christ.
A vital, everlasting union exists between every believing soul and God, and what cause can there be for fear? ‘Thou art with me.’ Oh for grace to be courageous pilgrims, and to make steady progress with heavenly company as our glory and defense.”
–Charles H. Spurgeon, “The Valley of the Shadow of Death,” The Journal of Biblical Counseling, Vol. 18, No. 3, 2000, p. 34.
