“He that dwells in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty…Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler…” (Psalm 91:1).

Is it possible to live free from fear in this dangerous and unpredictable world?

Yes!

It most definitely is!!

Because protection is a solid promise of God.

But it’s not a promise that’s offered to just anyone.

It is promised to those who abide in the Lord.

To abide means to dwell, to remain and to continue.

To abide in the shadow of the Almighty is-

– to live in continual union with Him,

– keeping His Word and obeying His voice.

Those who abide in the Lord can live without dread of what the devil will do.

God’s promise of protection doesn’t guarantee-

– that the devil will leave you alone!

Christian security is-

– not absence of danger-

– but presence of God!

It means that God will give you a way of escape-

– every time the devil rears his ugly face at you.

If you are afraid of the dangers around you-

– spend more time in the Word and in prayer until your trust in God overcomes your fear.

Draw closer to the Lord until you are abiding in the shadow of the Almighty.

No matter how dangerous your situation becomes–

He surely shall deliver you!

You can live free from fear!
