“Friend’s,Do You Know That You Have A Godly Shelter?”

19 04 2011

Greetings I bring to you my beloved friends in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ Our Redeemer! Dear friends, as we take a look at the above topic, there are many people out there desperate looking for a shelter and some even have built their own shelter. A shelter is not a permanent home! Its a place giving “temporary” protection from bad weather or danger and also provides temporary homes to the homeless! But today, my friends if any of us are in trouble or in need of protection of any kind, God says that there is a shelter for those who call on the name of the Lord! Let us take a look at the “shelter” that the word of God is revealing to us!

Dear friends, as I take you to Psalm 91:1-16 let us take a look at the “shelter” that God is going to provide for His people who have taken refuge in Him. God’s shelter is not temporary! It comes with a promising “package” to those who will abide in Him! As we go on let us see what the word of God is written in Psalm 91. As it is written “He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.” Here the word of God is saying that we who take shelter from God will rest under God’s mighty shadow! Wow! Let us go on friends,as it is written “I will say of the Lord, that He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” As we take shelter under God, He becomes our “refuge” and “fortress.” Isn’t that great my friends?

Dear friends, as we go on “Surely He will save you from the fowler’s snare and from the deadly pestilence.” Meaning when we take shelter under God, He saves us from the trap of the devil and every pestilence meaning any fatal epidemic disease that is considered harmful, destructive or evil. As we go on friends “He will cover you with His feathers and under His wings you will find refuge; His faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.” Yes, my friends! God will cover us with His mighty wings as how the eagles cover their eaglets from the enemy. God’s faithfulness is like a conquerors shield that will shield you from all harm and God will be like a defensive wall that will protect you, friends!

As we go on friends, as it is written,”You will not fear the terror of night,nor the arrow that flies by day, nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the the plague that destroys at midday.” Friends, you will have all these protection when you take shelter under God’s mighty wings! You will not live in fear at night. Some of us out there are living in fear of the darkness.You do not have to worry about the deadly arrows of the evil one against you or the pestilence that stalks in the darkness or even the plagues that destroys at midday! When you take shelter under God,your enemies will not be able to come near you because you will only observe with your eyes and see the punishment of the wicked! As it is written,”A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you. You will only observe with your eyes and see the punishment of the wicked.”

Dear friends, as we read on, as it is written “If you make the Most High your dwelling, even the Lord, who is my refuge, then no harm will befall you, no disaster will come near your tent.” Yes, friends! When you take shelter under God, He is your refuge and no harm will come upon you and no disaster will come near your place of dwelling because “He will command His angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways; so that you will not strike your foot against a stone and fall.” Friends, be assured that each and every one of us has an angel from God who will guard us in all and not some of our ways!

Dearly beloved friends, as we move on the word of God is written, “You will tread upon the lion and the cobra; you will trample the great lion and the serpent.” Friend’s, God has given us authority to trample over Satan and all his cohorts when we take shelter and refuge under God’s mighty wings! As we go on to take shelter under God, He says, “Because he loves me, says the Lord, I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name. He will call upon me and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him. With long life will I satisfy him and show him my salvation!” Friends all these will be upon us “only” if we acknowledge God’s name and love Him only and do not have any other gods before Him! Yes, my dear friends, that is the “godly shelter” that comes in with a full package of promises from God Himself if we take shelter under Him! Have a Blessed Lent Season my friends.

God Bless.
