He shall cover thee with His feathers,
and under His wings shalt thou trust:
His truth shall be thy shield and buckler.
Psalm 91:4 KJV
We’ve added some priceless gems to our treasure chest out of this verse. Before we continue, let’s stop and take a look at the things we’ve found. Here are the words we unearthed:
COVER: When we lean upon God, look to Him to help us, and surrender our ideas of what should be, His covers us in His heart.
Now that is not only comforting, it is ultimate protection and peace.
FEATHERS: He covers us with His strength and power. We become one with Him, in His House, part of His family, who is Head over all things.
WINGS: When we Surrender our Life, He Anoints us, Redeems us and gives us His Life, enabling us to do the works of Yeshua.
TRUST means to find refuge within His character and Word, to Lean Upon and find Support in His Heart for us, fully believing that His Grace will support us and whatever we need will be Revealed.
TRUTH: When we dwell in the Secret Place, God, the Ultimate Leader Births us through every Trial and Test because of His Covenant of love with us. Truth is revealed in humility out of a hidden relationship with God. His Covenant word is faithful and does not change.
SHIELD: His shield of Truth is Righteousness that stands against every curse of the enemy. It Restores Life in every circumstance with Revelation that comes from the Holy Spirit Life in us.
In other words His shield of truth renews our mind, will and emotions with His word and stirs us to make Him and His word the focus, raising us to life and putting our faith into action.
His BUCKLER of Truth is something we can Lean on for Support. It is a Fence that Connects us to God and Separates us from the enemy. His truth encircles us as the Head over all things, turning our Insufficiency to complete provision.
Through these revelations, we discovered that when we surrender ourselves to live permanently in the Secret Place, we reap the benefits of Psalm 91:4. We are comforted, protected, strengthened, empowered, supported, restored to life, given revelation of truth that bolsters our faith and moves us into action, knowing we have ALL that we need to do His will.
That is one power-packed verse…but we’re still only a few feet into the soil of discovery. There is SO much more.
If you haven’t joined us yet, there’s still an open door of invitation. As David put it in Psalm 34:8: Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good; Blessed is the man who trusts in Him!
The more we discover about our God and His provision for us the greater our trust and faith become. More adventure ahead. See you next week.
