Who is our True Protector? Psalm 91
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. Surely, he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence. He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;
This being a new year and witnessing the chaos that we are bombarded with daily; I felt the need to encourage all to remember that God is our true protector. Throughout this Psalm, the Lord gives the assurances that He will protect us from the many dangers we may encounter. What we must do is to trust God in any and all situations, because God is true to His word. He is the same yesterday, today and forever. God is a God who changes not. God has kept every promise made; He promised to provide all our needs, and He does so with grace, love and mercy. God asks us to cast all of our cares upon Him (1 Peter 5:7 KJV), because He is going to take care of the situation.
God has a proven record of providing for all of our (humanity’s) needs. Reflect with me on the young nation of Israel during their travels out of the land of Egypt. He was their guiding light by night and their covering from the heat during the day by providing a cloud covering. He fed them with manna from heaven and water from a rock, and even after the manna stopped God after the Israelites had eaten corn from the land of Canaan. There was fruit from the land of Canaan (Joshua 5:21). The Bible records other instances where God provided for and protected His people. He is doing so today regardless of the media proclaiming gloom and doom; remember who God is. Satan has no power over us; we are in the protective unseen hands of God.
God is all we need.
