And just like that, it “hits.”
And just like that, I realize I am living and breathing and walking the lines of a passage of scripture that I cherish and love so dearly….
It hit me this morning, as I read Psalm 91, verses 1-6, in the Passion Translation, just how real this is to me, just how much of a reality this passage is in my life.
When everything hits (or when it feels like it does), when my own strength begins to fail me again, when my weaknesses show through all the more, when all the things come at me in an attempt to make me feel like I’m not secure…with all the “evidence” it seems so easy to “go with it” –all the pain, and how I feel, and what it seems to be… that’s then the Lord reminded me this morning that THIS passage is the true reality, that I am standing right smack in the middle of the truth and reality of this scripture.
So I’m sharing it on here today…
Psalm 91 The Passion Translation Verses 1-6
“Safe and Secure”
“When you sit enthroned under the shadow of Shaddai, you are hidden in the strength of God Most High. He’s the hope that holds me and the Stronghold to shelter me, the only God for me, and my great confidence. He will rescue you from every hidden trap of the enemy, and he will protect you from false accusation and any deadly curse. His massive arms are wrapped around you, protecting you. You can run under his covering of majesty and hide. His arms of faithfulness are a shield keeping you from harm. You will never worry about an attack of demonic forces at night nor have to fear a spirit of darkness coming against you. Don’t fear a thing! Whether by night or by day, demonic danger will not trouble you, nor will the powers of evil launched against you.”
No matter what kind of evidence I find, no matter what I see before me, no matter how I may feel in my body… I know that His Word is truth, I know that it’s the true reality that I can stand on, that I can rely on.
Thank You, Jesus, for being this reality, for being this truth in my life. Thank You for making a way for me to be able to “hide” safely under my Heavenly Father’s wings, within His shadow, within His strength.
