Surely

Psalms 91:3 (NKJV)Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler And from the perilous pestilence.

Lekan: Dare, I have watched you since we were little and I have seen that you walk in the reality of God’s word and things are working for you. What is the secret?

Dare: I believe in God’s promises and I am sure they are for me. I end up seeing what I believe and say.

Lekan: But I also believe in God’s promises. Why then do I not see results like you?

Dare: I have observed that even though you believe God’s promises, you are not sure that they are for you. It’s like you don’t fully believe them, or you feel you don’t deserve them. Jesus has already paid for them with His precious life. Don’t waste them.

Today’s Bible verse begins with the word ‘surely’. When Moses was writing the words of Psalm 91, he was very sure that the Lord will deliver them from danger. This assurance was faith in action. That is the attitude that receives from the Lord.

Many people do not walk in the promises of God because they are not sure that the promises are for them. Not being sure is not a sign of piety; it is a sign of weakening faith, and this does not please God (see Heb 11:6)

Go into today knowing that God wants us to be sure that He will protect us and provide for us (even if there is famine). Think about how heartbreaking it would be if you had a child who constantly doubted your willingness to protect him and provide for him. That is what we do when we are not sure of God’s covering.

Prayer: Heavenly Father, please help me to be bold and sure in your promises. Amen.
