Day 60: I trust You, Lord. I am protected by the Almighty. Psalms 91
In the wake of a storm, people panic. They stock up. The do everything they can do to prepare. How do you prepare for a storm sent by the wrath of God? You definitely don't go out and spend your hard earned money. Instead, you open your mouth and repent.
When God has decided that enough is enough, the only thing you should be doing is staying on your face. In the natural, people want you to run around buying up water and non-perishables. You'll find yourself doing just that because, again, that's the natural thing to do. In the spirit, though, there's nothing another flashlight will do. God is ready to root out, pull down, and destroy everyone who is bent on ignoring His voice. The only thing that can save the hardened hearts is the good mercy of God.
As a child of God, you have nothing to fear! He's made you several promises.
For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock. Psalms 27:5 KJV
Oh what a joy it is to know He's got you. He's promising that when things get rough, He's got you. He's taken you into His shelter. He's placed you high upon the rocks. No wave can reach you there and you are far above the storm clouds.
He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust. Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence. He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler. Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day; Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday. A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee. Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked. Because thou hast made the Lord, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation; There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling. For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways. They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone. Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet. Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name. He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him. With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation. Psalms 91:1-16 KJV
What more is there to say? If you will abide in Him and allow Him to abide in you, you are so covered, even the angels may have a hard time finding you. There is safety in him. You don't have to fear the terror during the night, the arrow sent during the day, the pestilence that's hiding in the dark corners, or the destruction that will try to hit at noonday. Every hour of your day is covered, as long as you dwell in the secret place of the Most High.
Dwell means stay there. Don't leave. No hop scotch. No jump roping. No in-and-out. Stay there. Dwell in Him. No plague will come near you. No evil will come upon you. He will assign His angels to care for whatever we need.
This can go on and on because Psalms 91 is filled with promises. Meditate on it. Let it minister to you. The word is alive. Put it to use in your life. Let it consume you.
During a storm, depending on your dwelling place, you need to repent and/or worship. Remembering that repentance means to change directions or course (completely stop doing it), it will grant you a stay on your judgement and show God that you are worthy of His mercy. Worship will tell God that you are continuing to trust Him and standing in His promises.
Speak to the storm. Command it where to go. Don't let it push you around. Instead, tell it to keep calm...the King's kid is talking.
Worshiping through the storm,
Keiyia JOYet George
