Have you ever meditated on the word BECAUSE appearing 3 times in Psalms 91?
As usual I was reading Psalms 91 during my morning devotion time when my attention was drawn to the word BECAUSE. It would appear that the Holy Spirit was revealing the many blessings to be had when we diligently attend to the instructions given therein. Here are the 3 BECAUSE appearing in Psalms 91.
1. BECAUSE IN PSALMS 91:9
“Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation”
Here are the blessings from 91:10-13:
10 There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.
11 For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.
12 They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.
13 Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and dragon shalt thou trample under feet.
Do you see it? When you make Him your habitation or your dwelling place, all bad events will never again touch you and family:
- No evil or bad thing shall befall you
- No plague (plague, sore, stricken, stripe, stroke, wound) shall come near your dwelling
- Angels will protect you make sure you do not come into harm way
- You will have the authority to tread and trample on the lion and adder, young lion and dragon.
It is wonderful, isn’t it to know that you will never have another bad day with the Lord’s angles watching over you, your family and possession. Disease and sickness will not come on you for the precious Blood of Jesus shed for you will be your hedge of protection.
2. BECAUSE IN PSALMS 91:14 (When you agape Him)
The second is found in 91:14
“Because he hath set his love upon me”
Do you notice that when you truly love (agape) Him, He has promised to deliver you from all dangers. He will provide a way of escape for you so that you will not be trapped by the fowler.
3. BECAUSE IN PSALMS 91:14b (Knowing His Name)
“Because he hath known my name”
God has many attributes through His Name. You need to know all His attributes to find Him as, for example, your Protector, Jehovah Nissi. And as Jehovah Jireh, He will be your Provider and as Jehovah Rapha, He will be your Healer. Search as many of His attributes as possible in His many Names and as you discover them they will b your many blessings shown through His Names.
No one has yet known all His attributes although someone wrote as many as 365 Names of God!
May you discover His Hebrew Names and His blessings!
