Hi, my name is Justin Evans and I’m part of the GOD TV team. Welcome to God Today. Today I just wanted to talk with you about some personalized scriptures or things that I’ve prayed over myself many different times. But, through that many different times of praying and meditating on what I was praying, there was revelation that came and that’s in Psalm chapter 91. And I know there’s many stories that you might even have of this same Psalm. As you listen today, as maybe you pray it over yourself, just believe the Lord for some wisdom and some insight that’s new and fresh coming into your heart, that you can receive the benefits of it. Amen?
And so, Psalm 91, and we’re just going to read through the whole thing here and see how that works out for us. Amen? It says, “He who abides (or dwells) 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 whom I trust.'” This sets the basis for the whole passage– “He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.” If we’re not dwelling, we can’t abide. Amen? So, we’ll just keep moving along here, “But surely He shall deliver you (verse 3) from the snare of the fowler.” I might’ve missed verse two. So let’s go back to verse two. “I say of the Lord, ‘He is my refuge and my fortress, my God in whom I trust,’ and if I hit that already, guess what? We got it again, and that’s good, but “Surely” –verse three– “He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the perilous pestilence.”
You know, that’s something that we need these days. That’s something that each and every person needs confidence in God in is that He shall deliver you from the snare or the trap of the fowler and from the deadly pestilence or deadly plague, deadly disease. All right, “He shall cover you with His feathers and under His wings, shall you take refuge. His truth shall be your shield and buckler.” That’s what defends us, is His word and His truth. Amen? “You shall not be afraid of the terror by night nor the arrow that flies by day, nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness, nor of the destruction that lies waste at noon day,” right? And you shall not be afraid of these things nor me. Amen?
“A thousand may fall at your side and 10,000 at your right hand, but it shall not come near you.” It shall not come near me, because we have His word and His promises are true. We put faith in it and we shall receive it and see it. Amen? Only with our eyes, shall we look and see the reward of the wicked. And because we have made the Lord who is our refuge, even the Most High our dwelling place, “no evil shall befall you, nor shall any plague come near your dwelling for He shall give His angels charge over you to keep you in all your ways, that in their hands, they shall bear you up lest you dash even a foot against a stone. You shall tread upon the lion and the cobra, the young lion and the serpent you shall trample under foot.”
And because we have set our love upon Him, therefore He delivers us. He sets us on high because we have known His name. We call upon Him and He answers us. He’s with us in trouble, He delivers us and honors us. And with long life, He satisfies us and shows us His salvation. We are promised all these things as we dwell in the secret place of the High and abide under the shadow of the Almighty, which means we have to have constant and or consistent fellowship with Him. Amen? And when we do, we get that direction by the Holy spirit on where to go, where not to go, what to do, what not to do what to say, what not to say. Amen? It goes a long way, when we listen to the Holy Ghost inside of us. And that’s something that I’d like to phrase, “partnering with the anointing,” because the Holy Ghost has given us the anointing inside of us to direct us. But as we do, the benefits of all these verses in the Psalm 91, are ours.
We can rest assured; it’s in His word. It’s for us. And even greater than this, because this was actually under the Old Covenant, not even the New Covenant. And the New Testament says that the New Covenant things are even greater in magnitude than the Old Covenant things. But we can still rely on the promise that those are ours. Amen? So I just wanted to get that out there to you today that these promises and more are ours. Promise of protection and deliverance and strength and long life are ours, because the word of God says so.
Let me pray for you. Father, we thank you for this time together. We thank you for your word in Psalm 91, and we thank you that we desire not just the benefits of fellowship with you, but we desire the intimate close fellowship with you, Father. And as we do that today, as we spend time with you, we thank you that you reveal even more to us, that you reveal your protective plan under the blood of Jesus, all that much more to us, that we can put our faith in it because it’s your word. And we receive the benefits of it. And so we just bless you for that today, Father. We thank you for your protection in the name of Jesus, your protection from sickness, disease ,and any form of evil, as it said there, no evil shall befall us, nor shall any plague come near our dwelling, because we are connected and staying under the umbrella of your protection by fellowshipping with you. And so we thank you for your benefits, Daddy, and we just give you praise and glory for it in Jesus’ mighty name. Amen. Be blessed.
