God's Safe Place
Your Heavenly Father has decided to protect you, to put you in a safe place. I like to call it protective custody. He has a place for us in Him that protects us from all that the devil would desire to do to us. How do we get in this safe place? How do I get into the place that God can protect me? Proverbs 18:10 says, “The Lord is a strong tower; the righteous run into it and are safe.” Psalm 27:5 says, “For in the time of trouble He shall hide me in His pavilion: in the secret of His tabernacle shall He hide me; He shall set me upon a rock.” Psalm 32:7 says, “Thou art my hiding place; thou shalt preserve me from trouble; thou shalt compass me about with songs of deliverance.”
You can clearly see that the Lord is a strong tower, a pavilion, and a hiding place for our protection, and deliverance from the enemy. In Psalm 91 we see it as a secret place that causes us to abide under the shadow of God. What a great thing for us that God has decided to protect us. However, it is not enough to know that this secret place is available, we must have revelation of the doorway to this pavilion.
Psalms 91 gives us the answer of how to walk through a door to this hiding place. First, it must become a dwelling place. Not a place you occasionally visit but a place you live. Another key to this door is trusting in God and having faith in His word. The second verse says, “in Him will I trust.” When you put your trust in God and dwell with Him, He will protect you. Verse four says that we must take hold of His truth. His truth shall be a shield and a buckler. The truth of God’s Word is the only thing that can truly protect you and put you in the secret place where God is able to hide you. Then in verse fourteen the Word tells us something that is a huge key to being able to abide under the shadow of the Almighty. It says we set our love upon Him and when we do, He is able to deliver us. Then in the same verse it gives us another vital key when it says we have known His name. Today you are not really safe in life until you have a revelation of the name of Jesus! When we have these things in our life: when we dwell there, when we trust Him, when we live by the truth, when we love Him, and when we know His name, then we are going to have access to the greatest safe room that has ever been given.
God has always proven that even in the middle of judgment, calamity, and whatever else may come, He can keep us safe. My evidence is found in Goshen. Do you remember Goshen? Do you remember the plagues of Egypt? Everything that was going on in that nation, but nothing bad ever happened in Goshen where the children of Israel lived, they were in a safe place. There were no flies! Their cattle did not die! No hail in Goshen! The lights were still on in Goshen! The first born was not killed in Goshen! Why? These were God’s people; and if He did that for them He will do it for you, His child. Your Heavenly Father is your refuge, your fortress, your strong tower, and a pavilion for you. Dwell in the secret place and you will be safe from all the enemies plans and plots!
