Psalm 91 (KJV) He that dwelleth in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust. Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence. He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shall thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler. Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day; nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday. A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee. Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked. Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge, even the Most High, thy habitation; there shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling. For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways. They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone. Thou shall tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet. Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name. He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honor him. With long life will I satisfy him , and show him my salvation.
This is another great scripture to meditate on today. I remember becoming acquainted with this scripture years ago when Kenny started traveling in evangelism. I would meditate on this as I went to bed every night until I could see those big angels standing guard over our household. And then once again, as I went through a very extensive surgery I especially felt the truth of this psalm as I recovered and sensed His great peace. There are two words in this scripture--among the many good ones--that I'd like to take note of, dwelleth and habitation. And these two words are vital to the rest of the words. They call us to make our home in the Lord, not just a "place to visit" from time to time, but habitually coming to Him over and over so that He is our home. We learn to rest in Him. And as we find our home in Him, we experience the truth of this psalm. No matter where you may roam this day, stay at home in Him. Make Him your dwelling place. And in that dwelling place, He clothes us with His armor which we find described in Ephesians 6. Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes. . . Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Look at this armor when you have opportunity. Note that every part of it is Christ Himself. Live in Him this day and every day. That secret place is that place of union with Him. In the secret place we find all that we need. He is all that we need, our strength, our hope, our health, our source, our provision, our salvation, our very life!
