Scripture Reading:- Psalm 91
Topic:- How To Dwell In God’s Secret Place 
Text:- Psalm 91:1
In a world experiencing wars, rumors of war and dangers of every kind, it’s comforting to know that God has promised to protect His people. We may not all be on the front lines of a natural war, but we all face an enemy who intends to steal, kill and destroy.
However, we must always remember our God is more powerful than the devil. And when we make God our refuge, we have security in Him. Just like a newborn baby wrapped in a warm, secure blanket, God wraps us in His love, power and protection.
Psalm 91 has kept many a person safe during all kinds of danger and war. For instance, Ken knew a commander in the Vietnam War who made all his troops quote Psalm 91 every day. Whether they liked it or not. It paid off! His company didn’t have one casualty.
I also heard a similar testimony about a group of soldiers in World War II from a very small town named Seadrift, Texas. Every day the women of Sea drift prayed Psalm 91 over those men and as a result, all returned home safely. What a miracle! That’s the kind of protection God has provided for us.
There is nothing anyone can come up with that is not covered by the promises of protection in God’s Word. He has provided a shelter that is ours for the taking. See Psalm 61:3.
God Himself is our shelter and refuge. The dictionary defines refuge as, “That which shelters or protects from danger, distress or calamity; a stronghold which protects by its strength or a sanctuary which secures safety by its sacredness; any place inaccessible to an enemy.” When trouble comes your way, stay in that place of refuge in God. It’s a place of safety from any enemy. See Psalm 91:4.
Here Are 5 Ways God Keeps You Safe In A Dangerous World:
1. God’s protection means you are inaccessible to the enemy, no matter what the circumstances. According to the Scriptures, God encircles, encompasses, covers and shields those who make Him their refuge. His presence, [the anointing] is a kind of force field of protection making you inaccessible to the enemy no matter what the circumstances.
That’s how men and women throughout the ages have been able to walk unharmed through all kinds of dangerous situations. That’s how Daniel survived the lions’ den. The lions couldn’t get to him because a tangible force field of God’s protection was around him. God was Daniel’s refuge in the lion pit. See Daniel 6:16-22.
And God was a refuge for Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego in the fiery furnace as well. They were faithful to God and believed God, and a circle of His power. The tangible force of God’s anointing encased them. They didn’t bow and they didn’t burn. They didn’t even smell of smoke. An angel “like the Son of God” was in the furnace with them. They were not alone, hallelujah! See Daniel 3:12-27.
Prayer Point:- Oh Lord God, help me to abide and dwell in Your presence always henceforth by fire, in the name of Jesus Christ.
