Dwelling In The Secret Place......V.8
The Shield Is Up

Psalms 91:8, "Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked."

By now, you should be getting a feeling of security and safety. If not, please continue to read the Psalm, asking God for understanding. Isn't it interesting how many times this Psalm talks about security and safety in one form or another? Refuge, fortress, shadow, covered in feathers, under wings, deliverer, secret place. Why is God so insistent on mentioning this so many times? When something is very important to the Father, it is repeated often. As we continue studying this Psalm, you will notice that those words do not stop. He continues to reassure us that we are safe in His secret place, covered in feathers, under His Wings.

I realize that this is a bit science fiction of me but the image is a great way to show you what this particular verse says. Imagine yourself on that same battlefield that we talked about in the last verse (if you have not read that study, please go to Dwelling In The Secret Place...V.7). But this time, the battle is between the demons and the angels. You are priviledged to watch this. The fight looks really dangerous. The angels are beginning to win. Demons are falling everywhere. In the meanwhile, you notice a faint glow all around you. Wondering what it might be, you try to touch it but there isn't anything there. You look around. A huge angel is standing right next to you. He is obviously guarding you from the situation. Yet there is still that glow. The warrior angel turns to you and tells you that it is the shield of God surrounding you. It is impossible for the demon forces to penetrate it. You are protected.

"Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked."

Does this verse make more sense now? How about something closer to home. Because you walk in God's Word and follow His lead, despite the fact that the world is going dark, you are light. You are prosperous, in good health, doing what God intended. All you do is watch as person after person, corporation after corporation goes into bankruptcy, yet you are not affected. Granted, this isn't always happening but it could for the child of God. Many of the believers are coming out of debt even though the economic times are difficult for the majority of folks. Believers are not better than other people, just children of God following His Word.

There are some who will not believe what I am saying. All I can tell you is that it works. I invite you to give God a try. Jesus died on a cross so that you would not have to go to hell. He paid the price in your place. If you have not asked Him into your heart, please consider that today. He is waiting for you to ask. He forgives all your sins. Yes ALL! Nothing is too dirty for Him. When you do that, you become a new creation in Christ Jesus (2 Corinthians 5:17, "Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new."). God remembers none of your past sins when you do this. After that, it's time to shout! We get excited when someone becomes part of the family. Angels in heaven are rejoicing for you! Grab your Bible and read, find a good church that preaches the Bible (some don't). Oh yes, welcome to the family of God!

This was very interesting and encouraging. I love Psalm 91. I read it to my father on his death bed and I feel it gave him courage to take Jesus hand and go home with Him. Keep writing. Your words are a blessing!

Well done, Lura! Psalm 91 is one of my favorite. It is the very scripture that I clung to during the hardest months of my life. And when I "came out," I knew that God had hidden me under the shadow of His wings the entire time.
