YHWH gave me this well known scripture back in the 80s.. at the time I was just embarking on this journey to my Awakening and I received it with such love and gratitude, as a promise of great peace and personal strength, never realising how much it would apply to our lives this very day.
South Africa, my home, is in the grip of fear and evil and it is not difficult for many to fall into a state of despair and panic. Our cities are burning, popular leaders and celebrities are spewing inciteful trash to encourage criminal elements to wreak further chaos and destruction. This has already been perpetrated on foreign nationals who are living and working here. Countless stores of people from African countries to our north have been burnt and pillaged. Trucks delivereing goods are stoned and burnt as they may be driven by foreigners. Now these leaders are suggesting this anger should be turned on the whites - the apparent cause of all their ills. I do not want to get political with this, (and believe me I can - I have been a Warrior since my teens) but I must say the ANC has been in power for 25 years and the people who voted for them are suffering more now than ever. Africa sadly has a legacy of tribal hatred and corruption of power. The police Force admits they are running out of resources to cope and have suggested to the president (note small p) that the army should be deployed. But Mr Ramaphosa is absent at a time when the county needs his effective leadership. If we look with our human eyes it is mess with the potential to develop into a catastrophe.
But I DO believe we are able to change timelines and outcomes. This has been done before, there are countless stories and personal accounts. I see this promise with new eyes as I have expanded in my relationship with the Creator. Today I hold tight to the Promise and I CHOOSE the Higher Spiral of Light. What do YOU choose?
Psalm 91 ~ You Are My Refuge and My Fortress
He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say to the LORD, “You are my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.”
Surely He will deliver you from the snare of the fowler, and from the deadly plague. He will cover you with His feathers; under His wings you will find refuge; His faithfulness is a shield and rampart.
You will not fear the terror of the night, nor the arrow that flies by day, nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the calamity that destroys at noon. Though a thousand may fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand, no harm will come near you.
You will only see it with your eyes and witness the punishment of the wicked. Because you have made the LORD your dwelling— my refuge, the Most High— no evil will befall you, no plague will approach your tent. For He will command His angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways. They will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone. You will tread on the lion and cobra; you will trample the young lion and serpent.
“Because he loves Me, I will deliver him; because he knows My name, I will protect him. When he calls out to Me, I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble. I will deliver and honor him. With long life I will satisfy him and show him My salvation.”
