We all know that Psalm 91 is filled with promises from God for our protection, provision and safety! Many of us confess these promises over our lives, our homes, our families and our loved ones! I know that I do! With that in mind, it is vital that we understand the importance of the first two verses!
It is ONLY those who are DOING verses one and two who will consistently walk in the fulfillment of the rest! Verse 1 tells us that it is those who "dwell", which is the Hebrew word "yashab", and means: to sit down (stay awhile!), to remain, to settle into, to have as one's abode, who will have confidence that their Heavenly Father would never bring them TO something without providing for the way THROUGH it! So let's EXPECT it! "The secret place" is the Hebrew word "cether" which means: a cover; a shelter, a hiding place. "Shall remain" is the Hebrew word "luwn", which means to stay permanently, to remain. We will remain under HIS protective covering! No evil power or plan that the enemy can imagine will EVER succeed for those who will obey these conditions! The next responsibility that we have is to "SAY"! This is the Hebrew word ""amar", and it means: to speak, to utter, to command. THAT is what God has instructed us to do! We are to SAY that HE is our Fortress, our Refuge and our GOD, in whom we completely trust! If YOU don't feel as though you can TRUST Him, then that is the area in which you need the most Holy Spirit help! The first thing that HE will tell you to do is to get the Word of God into your heart in abundance! Amen! It is only the Word that we put INTO ourselves that Holy Spirit is able to use to bless us as the Father intended/intends! AMEN! Here is "Hillsong with "As It Is In Heaven":
