[quote style=”boxed”]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. Psalm 91:1-2[/quote]
The words of Psalm 91 are some of the most beautiful words in all of the Bible. The first and second verses describe a personal position with God. Verse one tells us that there is nearness to God where we can abide securely from assaults. It is wonderful to know that we can trust in God for our complete and total well-being!
There are promises that follow these two verses and Psalm 91:2 sets a condition that must be met so that those promises can be ours. This is what I will say:
1. I will say He is my refuge.
When I call God my refuge, I am saying that God is my safe place and a shelter for me. God is the safe place from all of my trouble. My God is the shelter from sorrow & despair.
2. I will say He is my fortress.
God is a place of my defense. He defends me from every attack that comes. I can trust in God to defend me against the attacks of the world, the flesh, and the devil.
3. I will say He is my God.
It is important for me to realize that my access to God, and everything He is, is personal: He is MY God. What a wonderful thing it is to be able to say that He is my refuge. It’s even better to add that He is also my fortress. However, its beyond amazing to be able to say He is my God!
For you and I to take advantage of the full benefits of Psalm 91, we need to first take our position in the secret place, the shadow, of The Most High and declare: He is my refuge, He is my fortress, He is my God, I trust Him!
In your personal time with the Lord today, read Psalm 91.
