2 Kings 17:39 …. But the Lord your God you shall fear; and He will deliver you from the hand of all your enemies.”
In reading the original covenants it can be seen that this invisible Creator God has watched over the children of Israel as they followed Him and His decrees, but it is also seen how as they turned to their own devices and other gods of wood and stone (and today of steel and power) that this invisible entity has allowed them to be plundered. Nothing, as I see it, has changed, This Creator is still willing and able to protect and heal and deliver from the hand of any enemy. The problem is the same as it has always been, we cannot see Him.
I think it is a bit like electricity, we cannot see it but we can see the wires which carry it. This electricity has the ability to keep us cool or warm and cook our food but it also has the ability to kill us. When used according to the guidelines, it is a tremendous benefit. But go against the guidelines and it can be very hazardous.
Fortunately there is a manual with guidelines and as the old saying goes, “When all else fails, read the directions.”
