Psalms 91 – Part 13

14 06 2013

“You will tread on the lion and the cobra; you will trample the great lion and the serpent.”  These are all names of our adversary…the devil…satan.

Lion? He walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.  Who’s the whom?  That’s us believers…the ones who have accepted Jesus as their Lord and Savior.  But, he also goes after those who are on the edge.  He doesn’t want them to go to God.

Cobra?  That’s a snake.  In the Garden of Eden, he came to Eve as a snake…a serpent.  As you remember, he got her to go against the Word of God.  That’s what he wants to do to us…to go against God’s Word.

So, let’s put this all together, and it pretty much comes down to that we are going against satan and his legion.  How is this possible?  He uses people, but we are part of God’s army!  We have armor! (see Ephesians 6:11-18)  God has given us this power to use!

My prayer for you is that this will not scare you away from Jesus.  Jesus is calling you today.  You come to Him, you have the ability to fight off the enemy.  Use His Word He’s give you…the Bible.

Psalms 91 – Part 12

8 06 2013
“They will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.”
This is a continuation of what we had previously been talking about.  They is the angels.  They will lift you up.  Up from where?  From hurting yourself.  None of us really knows how many times the angels have saved us…have kept us from being killed.  They are on assignment in protecting us.  But, we do need to ask God to send them.  But also, God just intervenes and sends them because He has something in store for us to do for Him.  We just need to be obedient.  Yes, there’s that dirty word.  Obedience.  God does ask for our obedience to Him.  We just need to get into His Word to find what to be obedient to.  When we do that, we go back to verse 1…Abiding. Shelter.
