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 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.

Safety in His Presence

April 28, 2013

Psalm 91:1-2,4 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].

I will say of the Lord, He is my Refuge and my Fortress, my God; on Him I lean and rely, and in Him I [confidently] trust![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.

Safety is not the absence of danger, but the presence of the Lord!

The Lord shelters and keeps safe all who trust in Him. Surrender your all to Him and be encouraged. Abide, safe and sheltered beneath the shadow of His mighty wings. Dwell in the secret place of the Most High, whose power no foe can withstand! Rejoice, upheld upon the Rock, in the shadow of His mighty wings!

Psalm 27:5 AMP … For in the day of trouble He will hide me in His shelter; in the secret place of His tent will He hide me; He will set me high upon a rock.

Psalm 63:7-8 AMP … You have been my help, and in the shadow of Your wings will I rejoice. My whole being follows hard after You and clings closely to You; Your right hand upholds me.

Then the Lord said, “There is a place near me where you may stand on a rock.”
