The Lord, Our Genuine Security

lundi 21 décembre 2015, par Josepha HITOEMETO OUIKOUN

‘’For thou, O Lord, art my Refuge’’ Psalms 91.9

At this end of year, while everyone is running here and there ‘’to get a chance to see a New Year’’ and others ‘’to shut a grave’’, what are we, children of God, doing ? By watching and listening media today, it is obvious that security has turned out to become an important issue for all countries. Peace is now both fragile and precarious. The whole world is lusting after security and protection. Even the world’s most powerful countries have become targets for extremists while household are specific targets for our enemy. Women are looking for security in their husbands who, in turn, are looking for it in their employers ; children are after security from their parents and from the family cell. However, all references like job, family, even Governments have so deeply been shaken and still are as never before in history.

As we all know, looking for security also means looking for Protection and for Refuge both for oneself and for one’s family. And we know God provides for Security, Protection and Refuge for His children. The word of God reminds us of this through many abstracts. But the text that best testifies of the big revelation about Protection and Refuge God gives his children is undoubtedly Psalm 91.

In this powerful Psalm, it is easy to see that God protects His children from big diseases that destroy the country, from diseases and fates, from fear and terror, from tragedies, attacks and accidents, from pandemics, from natural and international disasters, from wicked people and their evil plans against you. Therefore, as children of God, we have no alternative but put our confidence in God who is our genuine Security and Refuge !

However, taking advantage of this Protection and Security is subject to some conditions mentioned at the beginning of Psalms 91. ‘‘He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty’’ Psalms 91:1 Dwelling is here the key condition ! Genuine security for our lives comes in when we dwell in the secret place of the most High. He that dwells, (…) shall rest. God wants us to dwell in His ways, in His word, in His Will, in His house. As long as we dwell in the secret place of the most High, we shall rest ; as long as we stay in the intimacy of God, we shall take advantage of His Protection for him to alert us of coming dangers, talk to us, send us help and angels. We should have a strong relationship with the Lord, a relation that we develop through a genuine life of prayer and daily meditation of His word. It is just not possible for us to enter into somebody’s intimacy lest we get closer to his heart !

Yes, our generation is witnessing trouble and so are our countries and families. Trouble is everywhere. Therefore, it is time for us to enter into the secret place of the most High ; it is high time for us to enter into the secret intimacy of our God.

Yes, let’s make the Lord our refuge and our security. Let’s make the most High our retreat. And no evil will befall us and neither will any plague come near our tents for He shall give his angels charge over you, to keep you in all your ways.

May the Lord help us ! Amen
