The Secret for Deliverance and Protection…

stone wallOne verse, 6 translations, because each translation is beautiful.  Because someone other than me needs to know (or be reminded of) what it takes to be delivered and protected by the Almighty and very Capable God of the universe.

[Pause and reflect first…

What is it that you need delivering from?  A stronghold or addiction?  Negativity? Depression?  Yourself?

What is it that you need protection from?  {We all need protection from our very REAL enemy who is on a mission to destroy us…to steal our joy from us…to trip us up…to fill our head with lies…we all need protection from our own destructive natures.}]

So read on…

Psalm 91:14

“Because he holds fast to me in love, I will deliver him; I will protect him, because he knows my name.” ~ESV

“Because he has loved Me, therefore I will deliver him; I will set him securely on high, because he has known My name.” ~NASB

“Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.” ~KJV

“Because he is lovingly devoted to Me, I will deliver him; I will protect him because he knows My name.” ~HCSB 

“Because he has focused his love on me, I will deliver him. I will protect him because he knows my name.” ~ISV

“Because he seeks me I shall save him; I shall strengthen him, because he knows my Name.” ~Aramaic Bible in Plain English

God, Almighty Creator of all things, Alpha and Omega, the Truth and Light and Life, has offered us deliverance and protection.  This is all He asks of us…

 

hold fast to Me in love

 love Me

 set your love upon Me

be lovingly devoted to Me

focus your love on Me

seek Me

and…

know My name.

 

Hard to believe?  Seem too easy?  Too unconditional?  Not enough work involved?

Just…love Him and know Him.  Just…seek Him and focus my love on Him and KNOW HIM.

Am I holding fast?

Am I devoted?

Focused?

Seeking?

Knowing His name better daily?

Chashaq (khaw-shak’) is the Hebrew word translation for the “set his love” part of this verse…it literally means…delight, desire, bind, saddle.

Lord, let me know You more so I can delight in ALL of who You are.  The more I know You, the more I desire You.  I bind myself to You.  I take my saddle and attach it to You…wherever You go, I go.  Wherever You take me, I am saddled to You!  I am bound to Your love.  Before I ever loved You, You loved me and sent Jesus to pay for my sins.  What love, what deep, unconditional love it is that You have…that You are.  Reveal yourself to me.  Lord…deliver me and protect me.  Set my feet firmly on solid ground and be a shield around me.  I trust in Your deliverance and Your protection.

In the Strong Name of Jesus,  Amen.

Blessings,
