“He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty” (Psalm 91:1).Text — Psalm 91:1-4
During warfare, bunkers, usually built underground, are used as defensive military fortifications. They are designed to protect people and valued materials from bombs, artillery or other attacks. Explosive devices however could be used to destroy the bunkers, but God’s secret place remains forever impenetrable to Satan and all his cohorts. On daily basis, the Christian soldiers are faced with battles. Apostle Paul says, believers are on the battlefield against hordes of invisible enemies, who are ready to destroy. However, in Christ, we enjoy divine preservation and protection from epidemics, pandemics, oppression, depression and all attacks from enemies.
The Psalmist expressed personal faith and confidence in God by his use of personal pronouns like “I” and “My” in verse 2, of our text, which reveals the great blessings available to every individual who comes into an intimate relationship with the Lord. Many young people associate with cultists and get into many diabolical practices because they fear being harmed by unknown or imaginary enemies. Your security is guaranteed only when you turn away from your sins and accept Christ as your Lord and Saviour.
Your security is guaranteed
Express your faith in God.
