There is a natural hedge of protection around God’s people, which can only be removed by them. Yes, you are the only one who can remove that hedge through sin. Even Satan does not have power to remove it.
I from now on will also not drive out from before them any of the nations which Joshua left when he died. (Judges 2:21)
To keep God’s hedge around you, you need to keep a constant fellowship with Him through the spiritual disciplines of prayer, Bible study, holy living, and doing His will.
The Scripture says, “…whoever breaks an hedge the serpent shall bite him” (Ecclesiastes 10:8). Unforgiveness, backsliding, disobedience can make us lose God’s protection around us, and it is a dangerous thing to lose it.
