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.
What is coming out of your mouth? What thoughts are you meditating on? Are you saying that HE ALONE is your refuge? Your fortress? If not, then you are not allowing yourself to be in a position to receive His promise of protection. Even at times when I don’t feel like relying and confidently trusting in God, I still speak and confess that I DO. No one on this Earth will ever be able to say that they have it all together, BUT, one thing we can do is SPEAK His promises into existence in our lives. I am so grateful that for simply obeying His Word and speaking it by faith – He COVERS me and allows me to be in a place that THAT NO FOE CAN WITHSTAND THE POWER OF!
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. 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. 8Only a spectator shall you be [yourself inaccessible in the secret place of the Most High] as you witness the reward of the wicked.
