@david.jaime . The protection of GOD! An amazing and far-reaching subject. So, just for the sake of staying anchored to the pier, I will just offer my perspective on each of your questions.
“How does the protection of GOD work?”
There are so many scriptures that offer an always expanding definition. But the one that comes readily to my mind is Romans 8:28 kjv. “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.”
That confirms for me the trustworthiness of the Lord. The protection of the Lord means that discomfort is not an indicator that the protection of GOD is not present, because the Lord uses even the discomfort to benefit me.
“Is it different for everyone?”
I am reminded of the behavior of parents when considering this question. Although human parenting is just a shadow of the heart of GOD. How we raise our children may have some commonality, but good parenting always considers the individual need. Romans 8:26, 27, 29-31. Ecclesiastes 1:9 kjv.
“If you live wrong is it removed?”
“Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:35, 38-39 kjv.
When we seek to protect our children, we insist on immediate obedience. It is necessary to our ability to provide protection. It can be fatal if our children do not react in obedience. Their understanding is not necessary, just their trust. The protection of GOD is there for us all; although our sin makes us hard of hearing, defiant in our actions, and arrogant in mistrust. Isaiah 59:1&2 kjv.
“If you live right is it removed like it was for Job? Is our life being protected by God if we live in peace and comfort? Was the protection of God removed from Jesus and the Disciples by allowing them to be murdered?”
I don’t believe the protection of GOD was removed from Job. To assume so would be to assume that protection guarantees no discomfort. I don’t see where the Lord ever left Job. He did allow him to be tempted. But this is more proof of GOD’s individual relationship with each of us. GOD knew the breaking point of Job just as He knows ours. Job 2:3-6, Psalms 103:10-14, and 1Corinthians 10:13.
Never accept the lie from our enemy that GOD is not familiar with the sentiments of your heart, nor the grief for your daughter. He is so present and will continue to be there until you meet her in glory. The death of any child is so painful for me. My heart aches for your father’s heart. But I trust GOD concerning your heart and my own. In time you will be able to see the benefit from such pain. Until that time, GOD knows you, GOD sees you, and GOD is not phased by bearing the disappointment born of your loss. GOD’s love will always call you to His arms, cry when you must but trust Him.
GOD also knows our purpose and potential. So, the notion that things or situations distressful to these bodies and sensibilities indicate whether GOD is protecting us or not, is not a concept that should be settled upon or trusted. All things bend to the purpose of GOD’s will. I don’t believe the measure of that purpose can’t be identified by the pain to our hearts. Mostly because natural death is not a loss, it is a brief separation. The people of GOD even grieve differently.
“Is our protection assigned by God to His angels encamped around us?”
I could not settle on a moment when GOD’s angels were not employed or assigned to do His will. Many of those times they brought judgement to us instead of what we consider protection. Genesis 19:12, 13, 15 & 16 kjv. And sometimes protection as we like to define it. As it was with Daniel in the lion den. Daniel 6:20-22 kjv.
“If God has set life or death according to our obedience to His commandments, where does the sacrifice of Jesus fit in to this standard if our protection seems to be dependent upon our obedience?”
Deuteronomy 11:8, 27-28 kjv. Clearly identifies the best-case scenario if the parameters of GOD are observed while procuring a new land. Because we do reap what we sow. Galatians 6:7 kjv. I don’t believe that means we will die a natural death if we do not obey His commandments. GOD rains on the just and the unjust. Matthew 5:45-48 kjv. GOD grants protection to a fallen world just by being present. We don’t know what it is like to live unprotected.
But we do know what choosing sin will do to our World. We also know even while living in a World cylinder in its sinful impact, GOD remains worthy, glorious, and loving. Humanly that can be very difficult to understand.
Death was given to us in Eden. However, it is not a sign that we have been disobedient, punishment is the true indicator.
