My Favorite Psalm is

Psalm 91

He that 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 Him will I trust.

Surely he shall deliver thee from

the snare of the fowler

and from the perilous pestilence.

He shall cover you with His feathers

and under His wings you shall take refuge:

His truth shall be your shield and buckler.

You shall not be afraid

of the terror by night,

Nor of the arrow that flies by day.

Nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness.

Nor of the destruction

that lays waste at noonday.

A thousand may fall at your side,

and ten thousand at your right hand,

But it shall not come near you.

Only with your eyes shall you look

and see the reward of the wicked.

Because you have made the Lord,

who is my refuge,

Even the Most High, Your habitation,

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.

They shall bear you up in their hands

Lest you dash your foot against a stone.

You shall tread upon the lion and the cobra

The young lion and the serpent

you shall trample underfoot.

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.

I will be with him in trouble

I will deliver him and honour him.

With long life I will satisfy him.

And show him My Salvation.

 

 

Dwelling in the Secret Place

All the promises in this chapter are dependent  upon you meeting exactly

the conditions of the first two verses.

Exodus 15:26

“If you diligently heed the voice of the Lord your God and do what is right in His sight, give ear to His commandments and keep all His statutes, I will put none of the diseases on you which I have brought on the Egyptians. For I am the Lord who heals you.”

 

He that dwells: To live in a place, to reside, to hang on with fondness, to continue.  We must dwell continually with the Lord.

You dwell with your family.  You know each other.  You see each others faults and short comings.  You know each others good traits.  Nothing is hidden.  It's all part of being a family. 

We need to know the Lord in that way.  He is family, without the bad traits of course.  We stick with family through the worst and best of times.  So what is our excuse for not spending time with God?  He is the easiest being to get along with, and yet we don't dwell in His presence.  He longs to fellowship with us and be part of our lives.  We share our deepest thoughts and concerns with a good friend, but we don't share them with God.

Have your ever tried to keep someone out of a conversation?  They are standing there and you keep turning your back and leaning into the other person you are talking to, so that only they can hear?  That's what we do to God sometimes.  He knows all anyways, but he wants to hear it from you, in that secret place.  Maybe we figure, because He knows all, we don't need to talk to Him about it.  But when you tell someone your troubles, concerns, or your joys and triumphs, they become a part of you and you become a part of them.

How do you feel when you share with a friend and they give you feedback that comforts, encourages and helps you?  You feel better don't you?  Just think of how much better you'd feel if you shared it with God, in that secret place with only you and Him.  It's where your go and close yourself in with Him and tell Him your deep thoughts and concerns.  And he answers you with the wisdom of the ages.  And when you are away from that secret place, that dwelling place, you can abide, remain fixed and stable, under His shadow.  A shadow goes wherever you go.  It's stuck to you.  Even when you don't see it, it's still there.  Just walk into the light, and there it is. God sticks with you.  His comfort and wisdom goes with us wherever we go. 

Say with your mouth "The Lord is my refuge and fortress, in Him will I trust."

Back in ancient times, they built huge walls around a city. The people felt safe and secure within those walls, protected from the enemy.  It was they fortress and refuge from danger and the enemy.  We have a portable refuge or fortress that we carry around with us wherever we go.  His name is Almighty God, Jehovah, the Great I Am.  He surrounds us with His angels and no enemy can get through.

Psalm 103:20
Bless the Lord, you His angels,
Who excel in strength, who do His word,
Heeding the voice of His word.

Let the Lord and His Angels fight the battle.   Just speak the Word and wait on Him.

Isaiah 40:28-31
28 Have you not known? Have you not heard? The everlasting God, the Lord, The Creator of the ends of the earth, Neither faints nor is weary.  His understanding is unsearchable.
29 He gives power to the weak, And to those who have no might He increases strength.
30 Even the youths shall faint and be weary, And the young men shall utterly fall,
31 But those who wait on the Lord Shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint.

 

What do we do while waiting on Him?  Minister to Him with our praise and worship.  We will grow in strength and not grow weary.  We can't bring anything to God that He can't handle. As we wait, we are renewed spirit, soul and body, and will rise up on wings as Eagles, and glide and let the wind of the Spirit carry us.  We will run the race that is set before us

Hebrews 12:1-3


12 Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, 2 looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. 3 For consider Him who endured such hostility from sinners against Himself, lest you become weary and discouraged in your souls.

Philippians 3:13-14

13 Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, 14 I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.

 

We will walk in our Christian life and not become faint.  When satan puts obstacles in our way, tries to get us off the path, to the easier road, just remember, God is with you!

Psalm 91:3

He rescues you from every trap and fatal plaque

Matthew 23:37a

37 “O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the one who kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to her! How often I wanted to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings.

A hen will cover her chicks with her wings to protect them, even if it means her death.  Under the protection of God's wings nothing can hurt you. His truth, His word will be your armour.

Ephesians 6:11-18

11 Put on the whole armour of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.

13 Therefore take up the whole armour of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
 

14 Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness,

15 and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace;

16 above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one.

17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God;

18 praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints

With all the evil in the world today, so many people walk in fear.  People are afraid to let their children out even in the daytime in case someone hurts them.  There is fear all around us but we don't have to be a part of it.

Joshua 23:10

10 One man of you shall chase a thousand, for the Lord your God is He who fights for you, as He promised you.

Matthew 18:18-20

18 “Assuredly, I say to you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.

19 “Again I say to you that if two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven. 20 For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them.”
 

If you can get someone to agree with you and what the word says, destruction, disease, demons, nothing can touch you.  They can't even get near you.  You just will be a spectator and walk right through it.  This is the Power of the Word!

No evil, no plague!  Break the curse of disease in your home!  It has no authority over you!

Put Angels come into action!  They will protect you from everything that Satan tries to bring against you.

Psalm 34:7

7 The angel of the Lord encamps all around those who
fear Him, And delivers them.

Hebrews 1:14

14 Are they not all ministering spirits sent forth to minister for those who will inherit salvation?

Acts 12:7-11

7 Now behold, an angel of the Lord stood by him, and a light shone in the prison; and he struck Peter on the side and raised him up, saying, “Arise quickly!” And his chains fell off his hands. 8 Then the angel said to him, “Gird yourself and tie on your sandals”; and so he did. And he said to him, “Put on your garment and follow me.” 9 So he went out and followed him, and did not know that what was done by the angel was real, but thought he was seeing a vision. 10 When they were past the first and the second guard posts, they came to the iron gate that leads to the city, which opened to them of its own accord; and they went out and went down one street, and immediately the angel departed from him.
11 And when Peter had come to himself, he said, “Now I know for certain that the Lord has sent His angel, and has delivered me from the hand of Herod and from all the expectation of the Jewish people.”
 

Luke 10:18-19

18 And He said to them, “I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven. 19 Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.

We can trample Satan under our feet!  God has given us power and authority to do this!

 

Psalm 37:4

4 Delight yourself also in the Lord,
And He shall give you the desires of your heart.

Psalms 91:14

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.

I will be with him in trouble

I will deliver him and honour him.

With long life I will satisfy him.

And show him My Salvation.

 

 

In Your Presence, O God

Words and Music by Lynn DeShazo


In Your presence
That's where I am strong
In Your presence
O Lord my God
In Your presence
That's where I belong
Seeking Your face
Touching Your grace
In the cleft of the Rock
In Your presence O God

I want to go
Where the rivers
Cannot overflow me
Where my feet are
On the rock
I want to hide
Where the blazing
Fire cannot burn me
In Your presence O God

I want to hide
Where the flood of
Evil cannot reach me
Where I'm covered by the blood
I want to be where
The schemes of darkness
Cannot touch me
In Your presence O God

You are my firm foundation
I trust in You all day long
I am Your child
And Your servant
And You are my
Strength and my song
You're my song

Seeking Your face
Touching Your grace
In the cleft of the Rock
In Your presence O God
In Your presence
 

 

Psalm 32
6For this cause everyone who is godly shall pray to You
        In a time when You may be found;
        Surely in a flood of great waters
        They shall not come near him.
        7You are my hiding place;
        You shall preserve me from trouble;
        You shall surround me with songs of deliverance. Selah

        8I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go;
        I will guide you with My eye.

You Are My Hiding Place

Michael Ledner

You are my hiding place
You always fill my heart
With songs
of deliverance
Whenever I am afraid
I will trust in You

I will trust in You
Let the weak say
I am strong
In the strength of the Lord

You are my hiding place
You always fill my heart
With songs
of deliverance
Whenever I am afraid
I will trust in You

I will trust in You
Let the weak say I am strong
In the strength of the Lord
I will trust in You

 

In The Secret Quiet Place

by Andy Park

In the secret in the quiet place
In the stillness You are there
In the secret in the quiet hour
I wait only for You
'Cause I want to know You more

I want to know You
I want to hear Your voice
I want to know You more
I want to touch You
I want to see Your face
I want to know You more

I am reaching for the highest goal
That I might receive the prize
Pressing onward pushing every
Hindrance aside
Out of my way
'Cause I want to know You more
More and more
