SAFE and SECURE

The promises of God are sure; His precepts are everlasting. He changes not!



He said He has given His angels charge over us, to keep us in all of our ways. (Psalm 91:11) The word charge used here means to enjoin, to send with a command, to send a messenger to put in order. He has angels that do His bidding on our behalf as we struggle through the difficulties of life and issues we face as Believers.



How comprehensive is this coverage (sounds like an insurance policy!)?



Verse 4 - 10 says He will cover us with His feathers and under His wings we will trust (in nothing else), His truth (His word) will be our belt and shield; this is what must hold us together. Those in this position need not fear or be afraid of the terror of darkness or the destruction that wastes at noonday. If we stay in this position of safety in Him a thousand shall fall at our side and ten thousand at our right hand; but the darkness and destruction shall not come near us.



With our eyes we will behold the destruction of the wicked. No evil will befall us and plagues will not enter into our dwelling places. Because, again, He will give His angels charge over us!



Another promise given to us is found in Psalm 34:7~
" The Angel of the LORD encampeth round about them that fear Him, and delivereth them." This word encampeth means to make a dwelling, or to bend or stoop in kindness to an inferior (that's me!). It means to bestow or to give and have mercy. It also means to make an abode or dwelling for seige to go to battle.



All Believers are in a battle. It is a battle for our faith. Faith is what causes us to overcome the world. This is our shield and buckler, we must hold fast with great confidence and be sure that our anchor is sunken deep into the promises of God.


No matter the economics of today, no matter the politics of today, no matter the great darkness that is covering the planet, Psalm 115:11 assures us that those who fear the LORD, trust in the LORD, HE IS is our help and our shield.



Under the shelter of the Almighty God, there is complete safety and peace. Let the oceans (peoples) rage, let the earth and mountains be moved, we are safe and secure in HIM.
