In Good Hands

Worship Wednesday is brought to you by my sister and friend, Carla Reynolds, aka PT2006.

He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. Psalms 91:1 KJV

Every day we read of the escalation of crime throughout the nation. What is more perplexing is the fact that no neighborhood is immune to its onslaught. Kidnapping, murder, burglary, beatings, rape, grand theft auto, and the list goes on. It is enough to make us want to be armed at all times and barricade ourselves inside our homes. Yet no physical dwelling can be impervious to every type of criminal. There will always be a mind devious enough to find a way inside if that is their aim.

On the other hand, not one evil person can break into the SECRET PLACE of God. As long as they are of a sinful nature they can not enter in any way, shape, form, or fashion. His secret place is for those who have assumed new identities in Him, born again believers with a desire to be living testaments of His saving grace.

When we live in God's safe-house, we are fully protected from the arsenal of the enemy. Satan may hurl insults or nuclear bombs, but they will bounce right off the walls of the citadel. He may try to drop in through the roof or dig in under the foundation, but he will not succeed. The hands of the Saviour, once pierced with nails, are now the impregnable barriers that surround the saved.

The purpose of the Witness Protection Agency is to keep a witness alive to testify at the appointed time. Truly God is the only witness protection agent that is qualified to keep us alive in these last and evil days. Attesting to His grace, mercy, and love is the least we can do to reciprocate His service to us. Additionally, I believe we should expose satan for who and what he is. We should undermine his plans and reveal his tactics to those he holds captive. The word of God is true, no weapon formed against us will prosper.

I am in good hands, are you? PT2006

Hello Carla, Thank you for stopping by my blog yesterday. What you say here is very good. I had not thought of this verse in terms of being in a secret place and that's a very comforting thought.

My take on this verse was the idea of the safety we have in the shadow of God. If we're safe just in His shadow, think how much safer we are in His arms. You might enjoy reading my post on it from March 8, in my archives.

Again, thank you for visiting and God bless.
