Psalm 91:1-2 He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. 2 I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God in whom I trust.”
God's shelter (under His wings) is a "secret place."
The "Word of God and Prayer" is our secret place in the storms of life. They will lift us up high above the circumstances and allow you to fly like an eagle with God, knowing that He is guiding and protecting us all the way.
In God's Holy presence is a place where not anybody can go. A place where only the believers (those who have placed their faith in God through Christ Jesus) can run to for safety in the time of danger, trouble and the storms of life.
Believe it or not, but we are living in a time that the bible describes as "perilous" times.
A time in the world that is described by the Apostle Paul in this way in 2 Timothy 3:1-5 know this: In the last days perilous times will come. 2 Men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 without natural affection, trucebreakers, slanderers, unrestrained, fierce, despisers of those who are good, 4 traitors, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God, 5 having a form of godliness, but denying its power. Turn away from such people.
IT IS TIME TO RUN FOR SHELTER!!!
This Psalmist describes this secret place (shelter) as "the Most High." God Almighty Himself.
God is, was and always shall be our refuge and our fortress. Scripture declares in Psalm 90:1-2 Lord, you have been our dwelling place throughout all generations. 2 Before the mountains were born or you brought forth the whole world, from everlasting to everlasting you are God.
It is time to run for “SHELTER” for the storms of life are raging. Uncertainty is everywhere and the only guarantee we have is God. He is the only true place of safety, rest and peace.
If you do not know Jesus Christ for the pardon of your sins, the time to get to know Him is now. The time to accept Him by faith is now.
Romans 10:9 If you confess with your mouth Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved
Chasing the world and all it has to offer is temporary. Nothing in this world is guaranteed to last forever, except "SALVATION". Everything else is temporary.
James 4:14- Yet you do not know [the least thing] about what may happen tomorrow. What is the nature of your life? You are [really] but a wisp of vapor (a puff of smoke, a mist) that is visible for a little while and then disappears [into thin air].
1 Peter 1:24-For "All human life is like grass, and all its glory is like a flower in the grass. The grass dries up and the flower drops off,
IT IS TIME TO RUN FOR SHELTER!!!! The time to "RUN" to Jesus is NOW!
If God is not your “secret place of safety” you will not be secured from the dangers and snares of this world that is guaranteed to come, nor in the life after this one in which you now live is over.
Put not your trust in man for man WILL deceive you, but instead put your trust in the LORD.
Shelter in God's secret place under His wings is a guaranteed and secure place of protection and provision for those who would believe God and trust Him in every situation to keep them safe in any difficult situation.
Throughout scripture we see how God sheltered and protected His people.
Our God is a God of miracles and He wants to perform one in your life today by way of "SALVATION."
What is salvation? Salvation is being saved from the righteous judgment of God upon the sinner, you and I.
When Adam and Eve sinned in the garden, sin came upon every creation from that moment forward. None of us were exempt from eternal death and the penalty of it. Romans 3:23-for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,
God in His love and mercy for us sent forth His Son, Jesus Christ to die by the shedding of His blood to pay the penalty for sin that you and I could not pay. His death was full payment for our sin. All we have to do is believe that. Yes, it is just that simple!
Romans 5:15-But there is a great difference between Adam's sin and God's gracious gift. For the sin of this one man, Adam, brought death to many. But even greater is God's wonderful grace and his gift of forgiveness to many through this other man, Jesus Christ.
Salvation is found in Jesus Christ alone, who was God in the flesh, who died for our sins and rose from the dead.
There is a "CLARION" call from heaven to earth to all man, woman boy and girl on today.
The call is simple, yet profound. "IT IS TIME TO RUN FOR SHELTER!"
If you do not know Jesus Christ for the pardon of your sins, today is your day. Now is the acceptable time for today is indeed the day of salvation.
When you receive Jesus by faith in your heart, the way of escape from the troubles at hand that are to come is made available to you immediately! God instantly becomes your “secret, hiding place.”
Scripture declares that when Jesus died, the curtain in the temple was torn into 2 from the top to the bottom. Access to God's throne through faith in Jesus was granted to every human from that moment forward.
When you have put your faith and trust in the Lord, truly you can profoundly declare and proclaim vs#2 of this text as your personal testimony, which says "I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God in whom I trust.”
IT IS TIME TO SEEK SHELTER!!! WILL YOU HEED THE WARNING?
