For it is He who delivers you from the snare of the trapper and from the deadly pestilence.
Psalm 91:3 NASB

This became real for me years ago. I had escaped several exposures to the flu, but then it hit me and I was miserably sick. I’d been crying out to God, “Lord, here I am writing about our safety from pestilence and I am in the middle of it! What is this? Is this warfare against what I am seeing and writing?”

I was saying to God how much I believed this safety and protection, that I really had faith for Psalm 91! He said something that stopped me in my tracks.

“You have it all wrong. I keep YOU!”

By effort I was holding on to the promise but “it is He who delivers you from the deadly pestilence.” It is His responsibility to hold onto me. It is all HIS problem. A divine rest descended on me. My part was small: to declare and believe. His part is to keep, rescue, hide, protect, deliver me! How and when He does is not my concern.

I am “kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time” (1 Peter 1:5 KJV).

The entire responsibility is His. Oh Hallelujah! It is God who delivers you. It is He who hides you. It is GOD! Only God.
