In Times of Trouble... Go to the Secret Place...

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Homes and Land of Lancaster County

With the last batch of terrible storms to hit our country... I'm again driven to Psalm 91. I hide myself in Thee Lord.

This is how God works in our lives: Bonnie first mentioned how she's been drawn to Psalm 91 lately, I've come across it in online when reading something, I have heard two songs lately singing about it... He just draws us to that secret place. Why do these things happen? Many people want to know. Although I don't have the definitive answer and I believe no man on earth ever will, I find these tragic events drive me to one place, the secret place of the most high God. He is our fortress in the mightiest of storms. He is the peace that calms the mightiest storms.

Psalm 91

 1 Those who live in the shelter of the Most High
      will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
 2 This I declare about the Lord:
   He alone is my refuge, my place of safety;
      he is my God, and I trust him.
 3 For he will rescue you from every trap
      and protect you from deadly disease.
 4 He will cover you with his feathers.
      He will shelter you with his wings.
      His faithful promises are your armor and protection.
 5 Do not be afraid of the terrors of the night,
      nor the arrow that flies in the day.
 6 Do not dread the disease that stalks in darkness,
      nor the disaster that strikes at midday.
 7 Though a thousand fall at your side,
      though ten thousand are dying around you,
      these evils will not touch you.
 8 Just open your eyes,
      and see how the wicked are punished.

 9 If you make the Lord your refuge,
      if you make the Most High your shelter,
 10 no evil will conquer you;
      no plague will come near your home.
 11 For he will order his angels
      to protect you wherever you go.
 12 They will hold you up with their hands
      so you won’t even hurt your foot on a stone.
 13 You will trample upon lions and cobras;
      you will crush fierce lions and serpents under your feet!

 14 The Lord says, “I will rescue those who love me.
      I will protect those who trust in my name.
 15 When they call on me, I will answer;
      I will be with them in trouble.
      I will rescue and honor them.
 16 I will reward them with a long life
      and give them my salvation.”

Here's the two songs that just "popped" up before me again this past week.

Thanks Bob, I needed to remember that one today.  Our God is an awesome God and I need to remember that he loves me and he is in control of me.

This is one of my favorite Psalms. And its such a great promise: if we draw near to God, He will draw near to us.

Bob, this is a beautiful song and video. The Lord will accept nothing short of total dependence on him.

Speaking of the wicked being punished... Bin Laden being taken from us is just the head. There are more terrors out there and He will be our shield for them all. Thanks so much for taking part in this Kingdom exercise beloved. You are all saints and righteous children of God. May He Bless you each in a personal way today and always.
