Unleashing Psalm 91: The Power In God’s Protection

In Psalm 91:4, the psalmist depicts God’s protection as being covered with His feathers and trusting under His wings, a beautiful metaphor that signifies the loving protection of a mother bird over her young. Similarly, God provides a safe haven for His children.

Proverbs 18:10 reinforces this message by stating that the name of the Lord is a strong tower, and the righteous run into it and are safe. The Lord’s name is a powerful tool for protection, and we can call upon it in times of need.

It is also crucial to note that we are only considered righteous through faith in Jesus Christ. As believers, we have access to the ultimate protection that only comes through our faith in Him.

As we go through life, it is essential to remember the names and attributes of God. Not only do they reveal His character, but they also provide us with a deeper understanding of His protection. One such name is Jehovah Nissi, which means “The Lord our Banner”.

The Power In God’s Protection: Exodus

In Exodus 17:8-16, the Israelites were engaged in battle with the Amalekites. As long as Moses held up his hands, the Israelites prevailed. But when his hands grew weary, the Amalekites began to win. Aaron and Hur came to Moses’ aid by holding up his hands until the battle was won. After the victory, Moses built an altar and called it Jehovah Nissi, signifying that the Lord was their banner of victory.

Another name for God is Jehovah Rapha, which means “The Lord who heals”. In Exodus 15:26, God promises the Israelites that if they obey His commands and statutes, He will not bring upon them the diseases that He brought upon the Egyptians. This promise still holds true for believers today. God is capable of healing us both physically and spiritually. In fact, Jesus Christ Himself bore our sins and sicknesses on the cross (Isaiah 53:4-5). By His stripes, we are healed.

In conclusion, as believers, we can take comfort in the fact that God is our ultimate protector. His protection is not only physical but also spiritual. We can call upon His name and trust in His promises, knowing that He is faithful. Let us continue to meditate on His names and attributes, for they reveal His character and provide us with a deeper understanding of His protection over our lives.
