Preserved in His presence

Ps 91 He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. 2 I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust.” 3 Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler[a] and from the perilous pestilence. 4 He shall cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler. 5 You shall not be afraid of the terror by night,
Nor of the arrow that flies by day,
6 Nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness, nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday. 7 A thousand may fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand; but it shall not come near you. 8 Only with your eyes shall you look, and see the reward of the wicked. 9 Because you have made the Lord, who is my refuge,
Even the Most High, your dwelling place, 10 No evil shall befall you, Nor shall any plague come near your dwelling; 11 For He shall give His angels charge over you, to keep you in all your ways. 12 In their hands they shall bear you up, lest you dash your foot against a stone. 13 You shall tread upon the lion and the cobra, The young lion and the serpent you shall trample underfoot. 14 “Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him; I will set him on high, because he has known My name.
15 He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him and honor him. 16 With long life I will satisfy him,
And show him My salvation.”

As I was told the account of my close family member who was involved in serious accident this week yet wasn’t injured, I thanked God for His protection and His faithfulness to preserve us according to His promises. God is not a man that He should lie, when He makes us a promise, He keeps it!!! So, we can rest secure and abide in His peace.

My little son J, said he once had a dream where he was in danger but in the dream he saw angels with flaming swords surrounding him. What a prophetic picture! Indeed God’s mighty angels surround on every side to protect His people.

Thank God that we are not alone in this treacherous world where there are threats of plagues such as Ebola, wars, plane crashes, road accidents, extreme weather and seeming danger on every side. We are told not to fear because the God of Jacob is our refuge and strength.

Remember this everyday as you set out. Remember that the Lord has promised to preserve your going out and coming in. Maybe you or your loved ones have to travel extensively for work, are in war zones or maybe you’re off to college in a strange place. Pray and believe God’s promises for your life and the lives of your loved ones. Christ is the mighty warrior who commands the armies of heaven and promises to protect us as we make Him our dwelling place.

He is always with us, every where we go – we can never hide from His presence, now..isn’t that really comforting to know?
