Kept

Isaiah 43:1-3 AMP
1 But now [in spite of past judgments for Israel’s sins], thus says the Lord, He Who created you, O Jacob, and He Who formed you, O Israel: Fear not, for I have redeemed you [ransomed you by paying a price instead of leaving you captives]; I have called you by your name; you are Mine.
2 When you pass through the waters, I will be with you, and through the rivers, they will not overwhelm you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned or scorched, nor will the flame kindle upon you.
3 For I am the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior; I give Egypt [to the Babylonians] for your ransom, Ethiopia and Seba [a province of Ethiopia] in exchange [for your release].

Do not be afraid
Those who are Mine
Are kept through the deep waters
Are kept through the fire
Are kept and not forsaken!

Those who are Mine
Are kept because they trust Me
And have set their love upon Me
They have a personal knowledge of My mercy and love.

Do not be afraid
Those who are Mine
Are kept as the apple of My eye
Safe and hidden beneath My wings!

Keep me as the apple of Your eye; Hide me under the shadow of Your wings. -Ps17:8

Psalm 91:1,14-15 AMP
1 He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall remain stable and fixed under the shadow of the Almighty [Whose power no foe can withstand].

14 Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore will I deliver him; I will set him on high, because he knows and understands My name [has a personal knowledge of My mercy, love, and kindness—trusts and relies on Me, knowing I will never forsake him, no, never].
15 He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him.

From NetBible Ps 91:1,14-15

  • *  In this psalm an individual (perhaps a priest) addresses one who has sought shelter in the Lord and assures him that God will protect him from danger (vv. 1-13). In vv. 14-16 God himself promises to keep his loyal follower safe.
  • * The Lord is compared here to a bird who protects its young under the shadow of its wings (see v. 4).
  • *  The divine name used here is “Shaddai” (שַׁדַּיshadday; see also Ps 68:14). Shaddai (or El Shaddai) is the mighty king (sovereign judge) of the world who grants life/blesses and kills/judges. In Genesis he blesses the patriarchs with fertility and promises numerous descendants. Outside Genesis he both blesses/protects and takes away life/happiness.
  • dwells[03427] = abides, remains, have one’s abode, to marry (give a dwelling to)
  • set his love[02836] = clings to, will not let go, devoted to

Covered by His feathers
As the apple of His eye …

3 For [then] He will deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the deadly pestilence.
4 [Then] He will cover you with His pinions, and under His wings shall you trust and find refuge; His truth and His faithfulness are a shield and a buckler.

Two Kinds of Shadows

November 2, 2010

Worry often gives a small thing a big shadow. ~Swedish Proverb

Psalm 23:4 NKJV … Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; For You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.

Psalm 36:7-9 NIV … How priceless is your unfailing love! Both high and low among men find refuge in the shadow of your wings. They feast in the abundance of your house; you give them drink from your river of delights. For with you is the fountain of life; in your light we see light.

Psalm 91:1,4 AMP … He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall remain stable and fixed under the shadow of the Almighty [Whose power no foe can withstand]. … He will cover you with His pinions, and under His wings shall you trust and find refuge; His truth and His faithfulness are a shield and a buckler.

“Two kinds of shadows. When we are in the shadow worry (Ps 23:4), we need the shadow of wings (Ps 36.7)” – John Piper

Psalm 17:8 NIV … Keep me as the apple of your eye; hide me in the shadow of your wings.
