God is my refuge..

I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress,  my God, in whom I trust.”

Surely he will save you from the fowler’s snare  and from the deadly pestilence.

He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge;  his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.

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 plague that destroys at midday.

A thousand may fall at your side,  ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you.” 

Psalm 91:2-7

Peace and good to all.

If my share my thoughts on the above passage from the Book of Psalm. 

This passage is indeed a prayer for protection. It is a loaded gun against both the seen and unseen enemy. It is an invocation of God’s power over our lives, that no enemy can come against us and all spell or curse of the enemy against us will backfire at them in Jesus name. 

When Jesus is with us, who can be against us. The fowler’s snare or traps set by our enemy for us to fall, the deadly pestilence like the pandemic that the world is experiencing now, we can all be saved from all these, when we are with Jesus. In Jesus in whom we trust. 

The passage also speaks of terror of night, arrow by day, pestilence that roam in the darkness and plaque that destroys in the day. These are all brought by the unseen enemy and Jesus is our only hope to be saved from all these. How? By always wearing the armor of God: the helmet of salvation, the sandals of peace, the breastplate of righteousness and most of all the sword of the word of God. Psalm 91 is the word of God when we need protection from both seen and unseen enemy, from  the devil that is lurking around ready to devour our flesh. This prayer found in Psalm 91 when prayed with faith, we will be protected in Jesus name.

Psalm 117

“Praise the Lord, all you nations; extol him, all you peoples. For great is his love towards us, and the faithfulness of the Lord endures forever.

  Praise the Lord.” 

Psalm 117

Peace and good to all.

If my share my thoughts on the above passage from the Book of Psalm. 

Psalm 117 is the shortest psalm and the shortest chapter in the Bible, but it contains a great and clear message of God to us:  (1) For all nations to praise God; and, (2) The cause of why we need to praise Him. 

The message of God is clear right from the start, He is encouraging or inviting all people from all nations, to praise the Lord our God because His  divine plan is for the redemption of all, for the salvation of everyone, so that no one will be left. The message transcended beyond the boarders of nations and it transcended time because God himself is transcendent.  The Book of Psalm was written before Christ, but thru Christ, we His followers, are now reading this great God’s message – for all nations to praise our Lord God. 

And, why should we praise God? The message is clear also: God’s love towards us is great and God’s faithfulness endures forever.  God so love us that He sent His only begotten son to redeem us and all His creations  by His death and resurrection and to give us new life. So that we can be freed from sin caused by the fall of Adam and Eve.  God loves each of us personally, as parents know and love their children. We cannot see Him because He is pure spirit but we can know Him through Jesus teachings in Bible, through the scriptures, through our prayer, through our faith in Him. 

What God has promised, He will provide. God does not lie, because He is the Truth.  He does not break a promise. He does not break a covenant. Whatever He has said, He will make it happen. the Bible contains plenty of God’s promises to His people, a promise of protection, of forgiveness, of provision, of strength, of eternal life. As long as we remain with Him, with absolute certainty, God will make true of these promises to us. Praise the Lord.

God’s love, mercy and compassion..

Psalm 103:11-14

“For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his love for those who fear him; as far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us.

As a father has compassion on his children, so the Lord has compassion on those who fear him; for he knows how we are formed, he remembers that we are dust. ” 🙏

Peace and good to all.

If I may share my thoughts on the above Bible verse.

The verse is all about David’s description of God’s love, mercy and compassion.

That God’s love is immeasurable, firm and faithful to people who respect and revere Him.

God’s love is so great and limitless that it is even beyon the power of man to measure it. It is so immense that it is even beyond man’s comprehension and reasoning to understand it. And, its not only that, God’s love is steadfast, it does not change. It is faitful, steady and unwavering. O I praise my Lord for this.

Just like God’s love, His mercy to His people is so great that no matter how wide our distance from Him because of our sins that separate us from God, when He forgives us, our sins are pardoned, our guilt is gone. We are set free.

As our creator, God knows our being fallible, our being weak, that is why to those who respect and revere Him, He shows great compassion on them by hearing their prayers, granting their request, by giving them peace of mind by comforting them by answering those in need.
