Have you been walking with us through Psalm 91 this week?
In the free workbook, there is space for you to write out the full Psalm, praise and prayer, and notes. This simple guide is to be a tool to help you build an understanding of the truth we are reading.
This week I have stared down one of the biggest challenges in my present season, and the enemy is hot on my trail. He has sought anything that would slow me down, discourage me, or even overwhelm me with the desire to throw my hands in the air and QUIT!
I am not naive enough to believe that he won’t try everything he can to stop me from complete this “God assignment” as Nicki Koziarz calls it. I see what he is doing, and I cannot give him a foot hold and friend you shouldn’t either.
Earlier this week we looked at the first ten verses of Psalm 91, and we talked about God’s protection for us. Those ten words mentioned over ten verses that each paint a picture of God being our shield, our fortress and our wall of protection.
Let’s go through the last few verses, paying specific attention to 14-16.
“Because he has his heart set on me,
I will deliver him;
I will protect him because he knows my name.
When he calls out to me, I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble.
I will rescue him and give him honor.
I will satisfy him with a long life
and show him my salvation.”
Psalm 91:14-16 CSB
Because he has his heart set on me, I will deliver him. Oh my, what truth! When our heart is set in the right place He will deliver us, he will protect us and have our backs. There is no denying, and no question that seeking Him first and whole heartedly will deter the enemies evil plan.
The enemy will still strive to slow us down but God will protect us if we keep our heart, and minds set on Him. We cannot step forward from this without seeing that our protection hinders on where we are focused. We can’t expect God to deliver the protection if we aren’t giving Him the time of day. He will protect because we know his name because we know him the result is deliverance.
