The Secret Place #2

The Secret Place #2

“He that dwells in the secret place of the most High shall abide in 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.

Last week we discussed five things in the first two verses of Psalm 91 that we do to be able to dwell in the shadow of the Lord.

This week we will look at 5 blessings we receive, by making the choice to dwell according to His will. “Surely He shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and 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” [Ps.91:3-4].

Deliver thee from the snare of the fowler; a snare is a trap or any situation that the “fowler,” wicked men, fallen angels and demons set for the righteous. Our God shall deliver us from those traps!

Deliver from the noisome pestilence: Hebrew noisome word is havvah, meaning, rushing calamity; one that sweeps everything before it. Pestilence is a contagious, often fatal, disease that spreads quickly. We just saw something that looked like this and the fowler snared many with the spirit of fear, because they believed the fowler instead of the word of God. The word of God said “Surely He shall deliver thee! Shall- is a strong word, and If God said it, and you have faith, He will do it. We just have not been taught how true the word of God is!

He shall cover thee with His feathers: How many knows that being under His wing is the safest place we could be? There is such a protection, if we believe or have any faith at all, we trust Him, and no claim jumper can move us! Not what doctors say, what the bank says or any lies of any fowler!

His truth shall be thy shield: The shield protects from all attacks of the enemy. The shield can be moved any direction from which the enemy launches his strategy.

His Truth shall be thy buckler: a buckler is a small shield worn on the arm. As the large shield is protecting the greater area, it may be the buckler protects from the side.

Something we see here is, it says, “His Truth” IS the shield and the buckler!  Jesus said that.

“He confirms His Word with signs following!” [Mark 16:20] His word is the truth. He only works when our words line up with His word. That may be why many prayers do not manifest. It should also impress us with the fact of how important it is for us to know His word. We cannot know His Word with a 15 minute sermon on Sunday morning. We must feed on His word every day. What if we only ate a snack of regular food at 10:00 o’clock on Sundays?

There may be some who do not even know what we are talking about, Feathers, shield, buckler, word snack on Sundays, but something on the inside of you lets you know you want to be set free, you want to be protected, you want someone you can trust! Well, that someone is Jesus Christ. He was willing to come to earth and suffer and die on the cross for you! He knows where you are and has had His hand extended toward you, just waiting till you got ready. If you will just say this and believe –Jesus, I know I’m a sinner, I’m tired of the way I’ve been living, please forgive me of all my sins that I’ve ever committed. Come into my heart Lord Jesus, cleans me, help me to live in a way I can be pleasing to you. I truly want to live in “The Secret Place.”
