About Under His Wings Series
Psalm 91 has amazing promises of provision and safety - and the requirements for accessing these blessings in full. Come under His wings today!
He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High (Elyon) shall ABIDE under the shadow of the Almighty (Shadday).
Psalm 91:1 NKJV
To experience safety and fearless confidence is to KNOW Elyon, the Most High…not just that this is His name. It’s not just ‘knowing’ the definition. This must be my personal knowledge of who God IS!
A practical faith within a real life. He is in majesty above all in my life, my suffering, and my assault. To intimately know Him by this name is to enter the realm of His transcendent dominion and rest there from every threatening danger below and every failing tendency within.
And this is life eternal, that they may know Thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom Thou hast sent.
John 17:3 KJV
All safety, provision, and vitality of life burst forth and flow down…from knowing God. And the wonder is this: He is knowable.
Know (from the Greek ginosko): “recognize, to understand completely. The verb is also used to convey the thought of connection or union, as between man and woman” (Vine’s Expository Dictionary).
