Promise of ProtectionFebruary 28, 2015
Read Psalm 91
Paul said, in writing to the church, "Ye are God's husbandry, garden, farm, ye are God's building" (1 Cor. 3:9).
That means we belong to God. Now, if you have a building worth anything, even your own home, you are going to protect it every way you possibly can. And God, in His Holy Word, has promised us protection. I think the greatest such promise is Psalm 91.
Many years ago, I read Psalm 91 from a Swedish translation. I found that Verse 10 translated in the King James Version as "There shall no evil befall thee" was translated in the Swedish version as, "There shall no accident overtake thee." I researched it and found that this meaning is, indeed, included in the original text. I then claimed this protection.
Some years later, I did some checking and found that I had driven nearly two million miles preaching the Gospel without having a single accident! Understand, I'm not bragging on my driving; I'm bragging on the Word - Psalm 91.
Verse 10 continues, "Neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling." I claimed that part of the verse, as well as Verse 11: "For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways."
God has made promises and provisions for us. If our faith is not in God's promises, we live way beneath our privileges.
Confession: Make your personal confession of Psalm 91.
