God’s Amazing Faithfulness

God’s Amazing Faithfulness                                                           May 15, 2022

“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.” (Psalms 91:1-4)

Whenever a bad storm approaches everyone seeks shelter and whenever the sun is scorching hot we all seek some shade.  That shelter and shade or shadow is what God provides for all His people when they are afflicted by the wicked.  He is always there for them.  (Vs 1)

There should be a sense of security whenever one trusts in the Lord.  Why?  Because He is a place of refuge where one can feel safe and He is a fortress where one can feel protected (Vs 2)

God is there to deliver His people from the snares set out by the trapper (or the wicked-see Vs 8) and from the deadly pestilence (ways of the wicked). (Vs 3)

God is there to protect His people as a mother bird is there to protect her young by covering them with her pinions (feathers).  God is also a refuge and safety to His people as a mother bird is to her young by covering them with her wings.  A fireman went through a part of the forest that had been destroyed by fire and discovered a bird’s nest on the ground.  The mother was lying on top of it.  She had died but he was amazed to find that under her wings her young were still alive.  God is like that with His people. Whenever God’s people suffer at the hands of the wicked there is nothing more comforting than to know that God will act on their behalf as His faithfulness towards His people is as a shield of protection and as a bulwark of safety. (Vs 4)

“It is a trustworthy statement:  For if we died with Him (in baptism-Romans 6:1-11), we shall also live with Him; if we endure, we shall also reign with Him; if we deny Him, He also will deny us; if we are faithless, He remains faithful; for He cannot deny Himself.” (II Timothy 2:11-13)

It’s a good thing that God’s faithfulness is not like ours.  His faithfulness is constant.  It never changes and He’s never unfaithful to His people.  It’s just amazing!!
