"Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty".  Psalm 91:1




These words remind us of the presence of God's security and protection if we will only accept and trust in it.  Psalm 91 is full of these promises and I would encourage you to take some time and read it in its entirety.

We are living in difficult and sometimes dangerous days.  There is nothing that this world can provide to guarantee us absolute peace and safety.  Psalm 91 offers protection from every possible attack, pitfall, and snare of the enemy.  We are also promised protection from evil by the shield of God's faithfulness.

We say God is our protector, our provider, and our keeper, yet sometimes our actions don't reflect that depth of faith.  I think this happens when we have the knowledge of what God says in our head but aren't totally convinced in our heart.  In many cases when we are troubled or afraid, we have not totally absorbed God's Word.  Once we really understand how much God loves us, how vaulable we are to Him and who we are in Christ, we will truly know that we are destined to succeed, and deestined to be blessed.

Remember that if we are obedient to God's Word and love God with all of our being nothing will take away our protection or our blessings.  The greatest of those blessings being Jesus Christ, given to us to save us from our sins and make a place for us with Him for eternity.  Psalm 91 ends with that great promise:

"Because he loves me," says the Lord, "I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.  He will call on me and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him.  With long life I will satisfy him and show him my salvation."  Psalm 91:14-16

Come and join us at Copper Hill Church of the Brethren as we seek to grow in this purpose together, and share it to a troubled world.
