Tuesday - Psalm 91 - Got it Made in the Shade

ERE in Psalm 91, the author speaks positively of "abiding under the shadow of the Almighty."  Now, there are strong Messianic overtones in this song (Psalm 91:11-12 & 14).  Yet additionally, there is much that can be gleaned here concerning the blessings to which we as His saints are privy.  We who trust in God do find Him to be our refuge and fortress; a safe and secure shade from the intense heat of life's curses. He is a strong deliverer.  With compassion and gentleness, He is willing to cover us with His feathers to shield us from noonday dangers (Psalm 91:4 & 6).

We are joint heirs with Jesus Christ (Romans 8:17).  We are laborers together with Him (I Corinthians 3:9).  In Him we are absolutely secure.  We are safe in Him (Psalm 91:7).  "In Him we live..." (Acts 17:28).  "Of Him, and through Him, and to Him" we live (Romans 11:36). He is our habitation (Psalm 91:9).  The glory that He owns by right, He shares with us by grace (John 17).

We are His.  We belong to Him.  So, we have it made.  We've got it good.  In the words of the late great Peggy Davenport, "We are blessed, highly favored and heaven bound."  We have access to His throne room and have tapped into His power.  We are redeemed.  Hallelujah!  As His children, by faith, we are close enough to Him to rest in His shadow.
