"For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways. They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone" (Ps. 91:11-12 KJV).

Is God your first love? In order to walk in the blessings of Psalm 91, you have to set your love on God. He must be first place in your life. If He is first in your life, then He is your dwelling place, your abode. He is Who you think about all day long.

Now the scripture is referring to the angel assigned to Jesus. But this is not just for Jesus. Jesus is the head of the Church, and you are the Church. So, what He has, you have.

In my case, I know there were a couple times that my angel saved my life over the years. Well, why did that angel intervene in my life? Because I have set my love upon God.

What you love is apparent in your life. Nothing else surpasses what you love. Nothing else takes precedence over what you love. You're going to keep on going toward what you love.

And the scripture says that deliverance comes because of a person's love for God. They don't just love God. But they love Him first. They are intimately acquainted with Him. They have taken the time to get to know Him through prayer, worship before Him and studying His Word.

Set your love upon God. You've got to set your love on God more than on the man, more than on the woman, more than on the husband, more than on the wife, more than on the child, more than on the job, more than on anything else.

Make Him the one that you think about all day long. Therefore, He will deliver you.

Psalm 91:14 says, "I will set him on high, because he hath known my name." You must know God's name. That name is Jesus and it is the authority of God. You must know the power behind the name of Jesus: how He got that name, how you can utilize that name.

You must know the authority that's vested in the name and who they are. See, the name of Jesus is the key when the enemy attacks you. And the only way you will get to know that name is by spending quality time in prayer before God and in His Word.
