The lord is strength and my salvation

Psalms 91: 1 You who sit down in the High God’s presence, spend the night in Shaddai’s shadow, 2 Say this: “God, you’re my refuge. I trust in you and I’m safe!” 3That’s right – he rescues you from hidden traps, shields you from deadly hazards.4 His huge outstretched arms protect you – under them you’re perfectly safe; his arms fend off all harm. 5 Fear nothing – not wild wolves in the night, not flying arrows in the day, 6 Not disease that prowls through the darkness, not disaster that erupts at high noon.7 Even though others succumb all around, drop like flies right and left, no harm will even graze you. 8 You’ll stand untouched, watch it all from a distance, watch the wicked turn into corpses. 9 Yes, because God’s your refuge, the High God your very own home, 10 Evil can’t get close to you, harm can’t get through the door. 11He ordered his angels to guard you wherever you go. 12 If you stumble, they’ll catch you; their job is to keep you from falling. 13 You’ll walk unharmed among lions and snakes, and kick young lions and serpents from the path. 14“If you’ll hold on to me for dear life,” says God, “I’ll get you out of any trouble. I’ll give you the best of care if you’ll only get to know and trust me. 15 Call me and I’ll answer, be at your side in bad times; I’ll rescue you, then throw you a party.16 I’ll give you a long life, give you a long drink of salvation!”

Amazing right? But do not forget the conditions attached to the wonderful promises of God. A common mistake one can make is to take the promises without the conditions. He says “if you hold on to me for dear life, if you trust me enough to take care of you, if you can dwell in the secret place of the most high. What is the secret place? The secret place is prayer, communion, fellowship. To dwell is to live, to inhabit, to reside rtf, to plant roots in something. Basically God is saying, if you can trust me alone, no plan B , if you can live, if you can reside in constant fellowshipping with me. The question you should ask yourself is can you dwell?

If you do not follow the conditions of Gods promises, they cannot find manifestation in your life. Its as simple as ABC.

Bible reading : psalms 27 Prayer: Lord Jesus, teach me to dwell in your presence. Teach me to long to fellowship with you. Teach me to love you. I want to be like King David in the Bible in psalms 122 vs 1, where he said “1 When they said, “Let’s go to the house of God,” my heart leaped for joy.”
