"Because you have made the Lord your refuge, and the Most High your dwelling place, There shall no evil befall you, nor any plague or calamity come near your tent" (Ps. 91:9-10).

Everyone gets pretty excited when they hear about God's protection in Psalm 91. But it is important that we remember this: receiving that protection is conditional.

You have to know what God has said before that shield and buckler will work for you.

You have to hear it from God's Word and receive it for yourself saying, "That's mine. Deliverance from God belongs to me!"

Look again at the first part of verse 9: "Because you have made the Lord your refuge, and the most High your dwelling place." I have that first word, because, circled in my Bible. This verse tells you how to position yourself in the secret place.

It says because you have made the Lord your refuge by obeying verses 1 and 2 of Psalm 91, you can count on Him to do His part by rescuing you from danger. Notice verse 3 in The Amplified Bible starts "for [then] He will deliver you...."

When you think of Psalm 91, remember this: the first two verses are what we do and say. Verses 3-16 are God's answer and commitment to us.

When we do our part - saying and trusting - God does His part - delivering and preserving.
