The Personal Journey 365, Psalm 91 -24/7 Divine protection
…If you say, “The LORD is my refuge,”
and you make the Most High your dwelling,
no harm will overtake you,
no disaster will come near your tent… Psalm 91: 9-10 NIV
Is there any way to be protected from all of the things (anything) coming upon this world now and in the coming days? Can we get divine protection 24/7? The answer is absolutely yes! By far one of the most powerful promises of protection in the Bible comes in Psalm 91, a covenant for believers of the divine supernatural protection of the Lord, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. As believers, we can declare and stand in the Psalm 91 covenant.
Nation will go to war against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be earthquakes in many parts of the world, as well as famines. But this is only the first of the birth pains, with more to come. Mark 13:8, NLT
The birth pains described in Biblical prophecy are indeed getting closer and closer. With this comes a heightened state of alarm for both the believers and non-believers alike. So the question arises, “How do we get this protection, and what does it include?” The good news is that standing (trusting) in God’s promises proclaimed in Psalm 91 covers every deadly pestilence, that no harm will overtake us, no disaster will come near our home (Psalm 91:3, 10). We will not fear the terrors of night, nor the arrow that flies by day, nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys by midday (Psalm 91:5-6). The supernatural protection of the Lord even commands his angels concerning us to guard us in all our ways (Psalm 91:11).
Whoever dwells (lives) in the shelter (home) of the most High (God, the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit), will rest (find peace, security) in the shadow (covering) of the almighty (whose power no foe can withstand) (Psalms 1:1 NIV, AMP). What other means in this in entire world can guarantee this type of protection and safety?
If fear arises in the heart of the believer, then the simple question should be asked, “Where’s your focus?” When the Apostle Peter stepped out of the boat to reach Jesus who was walking on the water, Peter was triumphant, that is until he began looking at the wind and the waves. As soon as he took his focus off of Christ, and his trust in Him, Peter began to sink. (Matthew 14:23-31, NIV) Like Peter when we are called to step out of the boat in trust to Him, the moment we look at our circumstances, or even listen to those still in the boat giving advice based on their limited understanding, WE WILL SINK!
Story after story, verse after verse, Old Testament and New Testament, we are directed to TRUST HIM! The various trials and tribulations that we face day to day is an opportunity to build our faith in God as we begin to see Him working personally in our everyday lives. As this faith builds a firm foundation of trust in God we are ready for whatever may come from deadly disease, or accidents, to major natural disasters we are protected!
