4 Powerful Things That Will Change the Way You See God

Let’s take a look at these beginning lines from Psalm 91:

“He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High

Will abide in the shadow of the Almighty.

I will say to the Lord, “My refuge and my fortress,

My God, in whom I trust!”

For it is He who delivers you from the snare of the trapper

And from the deadly pestilence.

He will cover you with His pinions,

And under His wings you may seek refuge;

His faithfulness is a shield and bulwark.”

You're going to find that the Psalmist, in his exuberance, gives us four different metaphors to describe who God is to him through his proven experience. 

  1. “He is my shelter.” If anybody knows about needing shelter, it’s us in South Louisiana! When the storms come rolling in, baby you go looking for shelter!

  2. “He is my shadow.” When you live in a desert, it will beat you down and zap every little bit of your life and strength out of you. You need a shadow to cool you off. 

  3. “He is my refuge.” He's the one place where I can run to. He's my fortress. I love that. 

  4. “He is my protection.” He's the one place of safety I have in this life.

If I could have my own translation of the Bible, this is how I'd summarize these verses, “If anyone is going to try and get to me, they’re going to have to go through my Father first!”
