‘“He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High
Will abide in the shadow of the Almighty.”
God told Joshua to, “Be strong and courageous! Do not tremble or be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.” (Joshua 1:9) But, if this promise was only for Joshua, why tell all people throughout the ages? God has told Joshua about His very nature, and this promise – this Guarantee – is for all people who love God, who will obey Him and follow Him.
This “Guarantee” is for you and for me!
What is life casting upon you? What are life’s circumstances demanding of you? Stop and think on this. God is with us wherever we go.
And, God is not just “along for the ride”. His Presence erases all fears. He is, in reality, a mighty fortress for us. We can enter into Him and be safe.
Knowing the Key to this “Secret” will enable us to see Him with Spiritual eyes and to know He is here. He is literally with us to deliver us from life’s snares and traps, from terror and dangers, from pestilence and destruction, from the wicked and to keep you safe from plagues.
Would that be enough? God has more for us. Because of His Presence, the troubles of the enemy will fall harmlessly aside as you will watch on. God is keeping you safe and troubles cannot touch you – if you know “The Secret”.
And He has even more for us. God is holding you up and making you steady. He is giving you His ability to trample down any attack of the enemy.
You may think, “That would be great, but, how can I know this. How can I have this in my life?” The reality of this Truth lies hidden within “His Secret Place”. God says you must “dwell in the Shelter of God and in the Shadow of the Almighty” to know this for your life.
We know that faith comes from hearing the Word of God. You will enter into “His Secret Place” by saying to the Lord, “You are My Refuge and my Fortress, My God, in Whom I trust”.
I will meditate on this. Let’s Pray this. Enter in, and He will cover you with His mighty Wings of refuge!
Your Brother and Friend,
Psalms 91:1 “He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High
Will abide in the shadow of the Almighty.
2 I will say to the LORD, “My refuge and my fortress,
My God, in whom I trust!”
3 For it is He who delivers you from the snare of the trapper
And from the deadly pestilence.
4 He will cover you with His pinions,
And under His wings you may seek refuge;
His faithfulness is a shield and bulwark.
5 You will not be afraid of the terror by night,
Or of the arrow that flies by day;
6 Of the pestilence that stalks in darkness,
Or of the destruction that lays waste at noon.
7 A thousand may fall at your side
And ten thousand at your right hand,
But it shall not approach you.
8 You will only look on with your eyes
And see the recompense of the wicked.
9 For you have made the LORD, my refuge,
Even the Most High, your dwelling place.
10 No evil will befall you,
Nor will any plague come near your tent.
11For He will give His angels charge concerning you,
To guard you in all your ways.
12 They will bear you up in their hands,
That you do not strike your foot against a stone.
13 You will tread upon the lion and cobra,
The young lion and the serpent you will trample down.
14 “Because he has loved Me, therefore I will deliver him;
I will set him securely on high, because he has known My name.
15 “He will call upon Me, and I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble;
I will rescue him and honor him.
16 “With a long life I will satisfy him
And let him see My salvation.”
