God’s 9-1-1

 

 

 

Did you know that GOD has given us a 9-1-1 to use every time we are afraid,

  • pressured
  •       stressed
  •              fearful
  •                    burdened
  •                                desperate
  •                                            shattered
  •                                                      broken
  •                                                               falling apart
  •                                                                               losing hope
  •                                                                                             devastated….

He has given us a SECRET PLACE where we can run to Him and find safety, shelter, comfort, hope, peace…!  It is just amazing, and His 9-1-1 is so PERFECT for our every need:

PSALM 91:1 “He (or she) who dwells in the SECRET PLACE of the Most High

shall remain STABLE and FIXED under the shadow of the Almighty, Whose power no foe can withstand.”

“Stable and fixed”….I love those words added by The Amplified Bible (which looks at the Greek and Hebrew words to give added understanding).   It doesn’t matter how little the issue or how devastating the news, if we use God’s 9-1-1, we will be stable and fixed in all the storms of life.  I read a book by Graham Cooke in which he mentions that God had him spend a prolonged period of time in Psalm 91 (seems as though it was several weeks).  After reading how much he gained from this, I wanted to do this myself, so I spent a month reading only Psalm 91 every day.  I came away with such a greater understanding of how confident we can be in GOD, no matter what it is that is coming against us.  Grab a dictionary, a notepad and take a while to dwell here in God’s 9-1-1 and see what He shows you!

Psalm 91

1He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall remain stable and fixed under the shadow of the Almighty [Whose power no foe can withstand].

2I will say of the Lord, He is my Refuge and my Fortress, my God;

on Him I lean and rely, and in Him I [confidently] trust!

3For [then] He will deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the deadly pestilence.

4[Then] He will cover you with His pinions, and under His wings shall you trust and find refuge; His truth and His faithfulness are a shield and a buckler.

(I love to picture myself under God’s wings, like chicks under the mother hen’s wings,

I am kept warm, held close to His heart)

5You shall not be afraid of the terror of the night, nor of the arrow

(the evil plots and slanders of the wicked) that flies by day,

(When  you lie awake at night, maybe after nightmares, or tormenting thoughts of all the situations that are so out of your control, memories and regrets of the past,  coming to steal your peace…run to Him, cry out to Jesus, take those thoughts captive…repeat God’s 9-1-1 outloud…and then rest in His arms as you fall back asleep)….

6Nor of the pestilence that stalks in darkness, nor of the destruction and sudden death that surprise and lay waste at noonday.

7A thousand may fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand,

but it shall not come near you.

(No matter what comes in this world with so much political unrest, if we are dwelling in the secret place–living, staying, making our home in that place of confident trust in the One Who will never fail us…then…see this next most awesome truth:

8Only a spectator shall you be [yourself inaccessible in the secret place of the Most High] as you witness the reward of the wicked.

(Did you GET that?!!!  We are INACCESSIBLE to the enemy when we are in that secret place of the Most High–wow, I just LOVE that!!!)

9Because you have made the Lord your refuge, and the Most High your dwelling place,

10There shall no evil befall you, nor any plague or calamity come near your tent.

11For He will give His angels [especial] charge over you to accompany and defend and preserve you in all your ways [of obedience and service].

12They shall bear you up on their hands, lest you dash your foot against a stone.

(If we could see the size of the angels that stand ready to accompany, defend and preserve us…we would live with NO FEAR!!!)

13You shall tread upon the lion and adder; the young lion and the serpent shall you trample underfoot.

14Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore will I deliver him; I will set him on high, because he knows and understands My name [has a personal knowledge of My mercy, love, and kindness–trusts and relies on Me, knowing I will never forsake him, no, never].

15He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him.

16With long life will I satisfy him and show him My salvation.”

This is my favorite Psalm…it gives me such confidence!   And this is the perfect Psalm to pray over your family…we declare to God His truths promised in the Psalm and our trust and confidence soars in His love, protection, and total care of us!  You are an AWESOME GOD, Father!  How we love You!!  Thank you, Father, thank You!!!
