"He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust. Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence. He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.
A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee. Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked. Because thou hast made the Lord, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation; There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling. For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways. They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone."
Psalm 91:1-4, 7-12
Do you dwell in the secret place of the most High? Your life will reflect it. If you do, God will keep you in His shadow. When we dwell in someone's shadow, we aren't seen - only they are. We don't want to dwell in a person's shadow - we need to be our own person. Dwelling in God's shadow, however, is where He shows us His Presence, where He gets all the honor and glory for our accomplishments. He shall cover us with his feathers and under his wings we shall trust his truth. Under his wings - just like a bird covers her babies with her feathered wings, to keep them out of the direct line of sight from predators. This is where God keeps us. Where we learn more about Him - develop a true relationship with Him. He will show us who He is - a place where we learn to trust Him. Once we learn to trust Him - we trust in Him in all areas of our lives. This is not an overnight experience - it's an ongoing process.
Under God's protective wings, we watch God be our Defender but only if we allow Him to be. When we allow God to be our Defender and we live in Him, we shall see what happens to the wicked.
He will not allow evil to trip us up. God will expose the evil so we can walk away from it. Because we dwell in the secret place of the most High, God will give us with His angels - His warring angels - to stand guard over us. They will help us so we don't get so wrapped up in spiritual things that are not of God that we suffer spiritually. If you ask God to bring the darkness to light or to show you the truth about people or situations, He will.
This can also pertain to God keeping us physically safe as well. Have you heard of people say that they couldn't get drunk? Have you heard or maybe even experience being in a car accident where people should have been killed. Instead, they walk away with minimal injuries? We call it a miracle. God was keeping these people safe with His angels.
Allow God to be your ALL. Allow God to be your Defender. When He draws you closer to Him - don't fight it - surrender to Him and live your life according to His wishes for you instead of your will, your way where you can fall into the snare of the devil where he has the fowler waiting for you.
"Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence" Psalm 91:3 KJV
