God was the first Special Force. Just like the Army’s Rangers, Navy’s SEALs, Green Berets, and the like, God has covert operations. Don’t believe me? Well, check out Psalm 91 then read the Strong’s translation:
He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High
shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
Here is the Strong’s translation:
He who lives in the covert of the Most High will abide in the Alstrong’s shade
After looking up all the words, this is what this scripture is actually saying:
He who sits down (rests) in the hiding place of the Supreme God
will stay permanently in the protection and security of Almighty God
Of course, the covert operation has two parts – God’s part, protection, and your part.
Your part is the first 2 verses – resting and trusting, and saying. “Saying” means you have to hear and believe God’s Word (the Bible), and receive it for yourself by saying, “That’s mine. Deliverance and protection by God belong to me!”
When you think of Psalm 91, remember this: the first two verses are what we do and say. Verses 3 through 16 are God’s answer and total commitment to us.
When we do our part – resting, trusting and saying – God does His part – delivering and preserving (protecting). I’ve heard about military people in battle who quoted Psalms 91 before going out and having supernatural protection. And parents who pray it over their children in the military – and everywhere else. Again, supernatural protection.
Rest in the Lord and no matter how dangerous this world becomes trust that God shall surely rescue you. Believe He’s got your back, literally (Isaiah 52:12, Isaiah 58:8).
You should also realize there are those Special Forces – God’s Angels. They are put here to “minister” to us – serve us, work for us, do what we speak that lines up with God’s Word. In other words, you can’t say, “We’re gonna die!!” in a dire situation. You would have cut off your own protection. You can ask them to protect yourself, children, family. But you can’t speak against that.
God has promised you protection, to be delivered from all evil.
You have His Word on it!
