Psalm 91 is one of my favorites from God’s word. Over the past 41 years I have spent much time in these passages where I was able to memorize it but it doesn’t do us any good if we just have it in our mind.
It has to be in our heart where it will rise up and take over in every situation we face of danger or hardships. Here are some thoughts I had as I read the passages once again. I pray that something will touch your heart and increase faith.
When you dwell communing with Jesus at the right hand of the Father, the place of all authority and power over the enemy, you remain hidden (in the secret place) within the strength of God the Father.
You don’t have to fear any of the power of the enemy. Don’t be troubled by it for God will keep you safe. His truth shall be your shield and buckler. The words that He says He will keep. He is Faithful and True. Because God is for us we can anticipate good and not dread evil because our God is a good God and loving Father.
We snuggle close to Him at all times underneath His wing hidden from the enemy. We only go through what He allows. We can remain assured of His protection if we walk in the Light He has given us.
The enemy wants to bring harm to us that is why he entices us with deception, to justify sin, and to make you doubt that what you heard was from God when He said to not touch the unclean thing like with Eve in the garden. He knows that if he can get you to not walk in the Light, then he has the legal right to harm you and catch you in a snare.
Some might think they have the freedom to do all things but what they have truly come under is bondage to the enemy. Truth and grace alone can bring the true freedom that we desire.
When the LORD blesses you with revelation of truth, it is like receiving a precious pearl. The Word says not to cast your pearls before the swine or they will turn and trample you. The enemy will try to rob you of your peace and joy.
We don’t need to share the Light He gives us with everyone because He doesn’t call everyone in on receiving the preciousness of the revelation He has given you.
It is intimate and can only be shared with the One who gave it, and that is the LORD Jesus. He shares these gifts, these pearls, with His bride. So enjoy them with your groom.
The secret is in communing with the Father like Adam when he walked and talked with Him in the cool of the day. This communion brings the peace and assurance of walking in His perfect will. The LORD orders the steps of the righteous. Walking in His will brings safety knowing He is with us and that he has everything under His control.
Only good shall follow us all the days of our life because we serve a good God. Just love Him. Wrap the arms of your heart around Him. Be one with Him because He longs for us to draw close.

Yolanda Ballard of At The Father’s Feet website, shares with you, the body of Christ, the words she’s received quietly sitting at the Father’s feet. I believe Jesus set the example for us to follow. Whenever He could He would come apart from the busyness of the world so that He could quiet Himself before the Father, for that is where He received direction and strength to carry out His will.
