How to Release the Power of Psalm 91
Why Psalm 91?
In perilous times like these:
♣ With wars and threats of war,
♣ With natural disasters that take lives and change a way of life,
♣ With diseases that elude treatment and threaten life,
You look for a Safe Harbor in which to drop anchor.
You look for Someone who can pull you through.
People who have lived a Scripture-soaked life automatically pick up Psalm 91 for this kind of strength and encouragement. What are they getting from Psalm 91? Is this passage of Scripture some magical incantation or spiritual elixir to wash away trouble?
No! Psalm 91 lays out a plan of action and clearly states its spiritual consequences:
♣ You do this, then God does that.
♣ You move by faith, then God moves by power.
♣ You trust God, then God proves you right and adds some bonuses.
No magic here! It’s called ASSURANCE. This is a faith story of cause and effect. It is a telling of the unbelievable rewards that God offers when you sow a mustard seed of faith.
So what is this mustard seed of faith?
♣ Believe God. He’s your Daddy!
♣ Trust Him. He’s a perfect Daddy!
♣ Make Him your Hiding Place.
♣ And stay there with the Lord of Power and Glory! Why be any place else?
After you’ve sown your mustard seed, then God will:
♣ Comfort and protect you, as a mama eaglet cares for her chicks
♣ Assign angels to you for constant coverage
♣ Bless you with a long and satisfying life
♣ Deliver you from a place of stress into a place of fulfillment.
Do you know that Psalm 91 is not just about protection? God protects and delivers you from trouble to release you into a wide place of freedom. This is empowerment. God wants more for you than you even want for yourself! This is about life in abundance (John 10:10).
How do you get to this place of faith?
God has given to each of us who believe a measure of faith. It appears that we all start out with the same measure…equal opportunity! The developing and stretching of this faith takes time and effort. Your reading this page indicates you are willing with both time and effort. Part of the effort comes with:
♣ Study: Study to show yourself approved.
(2Timothy2:15 - Study and be eager and do your utmost to present yourself to God approved (tested by trial), a workman who has no cause to be ashamed, correctly analyzing and accurately dividing [rightly handling and skillfully teaching] the Word of Truth.) Amplified
♣ Prayer: Pray without ceasing.
(1Thessalonians5:16 -18 Rejoice always. Pray without ceasing. In everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you)
There is nothing like prayer for expanding your faith. To read more of my very strong opinions based on experience, read my entry about Agnes Sanford and attending her prayer workshop back in 1973. A real faith builder!
God meets us where we are in our faith walk. Cry out to God with the little you understand and believe. He will meet you with his power and glory. But, knowing and understanding little is not a power position in the spirit. Knowing little leaves you feeling shaky and wooondering.
Take the time through study and prayer to become grounded and built up in faith. Then when the winds begin to blow, you can confidently snuggle in your Hiding Place under the wings of your Daddy God.
