Psalms 91 – Parts 9 & 10

22 05 2013

If you say, “The Lord is my refuge,” and you make the Most High your dwelling, no harm will overtake you, no disaster will come near your tent.

Today will be doing verses 9 & 10 together because it goes together.  We will be following one thought…refuge with NO harm.  Wow!  Have you ever thought of that?

First we have to realize and say that the Lord is your refuge.  What exactly does that mean?  According to the dictionary refuge means: a shelter or protection from danger or trouble.  That’s a sweet picture I see of being in a cave during a storm.  Also, think of soldiers in a foxhole during combat.  Shelter.

You also need to make Him your dwelling.  Dwelling is where you live.  Let Him live in you.  How does that happen?  Accepting Jesus as your Lord and Savior.  Believe and accept that He died for you and would have done it if you were the only one here.  He loves you that much!

Then it says when you do this, no harm will overtake you…no disaster will come near your tent.  When we think disaster, we think what has just happened to Oklahoma.  That is disaster in a big way.

But your tent?  Most people would think that is where you live.  Go with me here a minute.  When my mother passed away, my Dad told me that she wasn’t there anymore…she was living in a tent.  So, here we go.  You are a spirit.  That’s the real you…on the inside.  You have a soul.  That’s your intellect…your thinking.  And you live in a body.  That’s what this is saying here.  No disaster will come near your tent.

But, you have to be abiding in Him.  Believe Him in EVERY area of your life.  Sickness?  He can handle that.  Rejection?  He can handle that, too.  He was rejected.  He knows how you feel.  He will NEVER reject you.

So now the ball is in your corner.  What will you do?  Will you reject Him and His protection and comfort?  Will you accept Him and all He’s done for you and given you.  The answer is up to you.  Accept Him today.
