READ:  Psalm 91:1-4 "Those who live in the shelter of the Most High will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty.  This I declare about the Lord:  He alone is my refuge, my place of safety; he is my God, and I trust him.  For he will rescue you from every trap and protect you from deadly disease. He will cover you with his feathers.  He will shelter you with his wings.  His faithful promises are your armor and protection".  

We live in a scary world.  The Word of God tells us that satan, our adversary, roams about as a lion seeking whom he can devour.   However, for the believer in Jesus Christ there is GREAT NEWS!   We have reason to feel safe.  

In Psalm 91 we see that the Lord is our: 

  1. JEHOVAH SHALOM - our LORD OF PEACE.  He is our refuge in the storms of life, bringing peace to us even in the midst of troubles.  
  2. JEHOVAH SHAMMAH - our PLACE OF SAFETY.  He will guard and protect us. 
  3. JEHOVAH JIRAH - our RESCUE FROM TRAPS.   He is our protector and he sees all of our needs.  He provides for us.  
  4. JEHOVAH RAPHA - our LORD WHO HEALS.   He will heal you of disease. 
  5. JEHOVAH SHAMMAH - our LORD IS HERE.  He will never leave you or abandon you.   

Yes, for the child of God we live under a banner of protection and care from our heavenly Father.  Thank Him for this today. 

Thank you Father God for how you care for me. Thank you that I am your child and you are my Father.
