“Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him; I will set him on high, because he has known My name. He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him and honor him. With long life I will satisfy him, and show him My salvation.” (Psalm 91:14-16).
Has it dawned upon you yet just how good you have it? Let me walk you through this verse of Scripture and see if the lights turn on a bit brighter in your soul.
We are delivered from darkness and brought forth into the light of a lasting friendship – a friendship rooted and grounded in love, and built upon the solid rock of God’s unfailing faithfulness. What more could you want?
But there is more! Not only are we delivered, but we are also exalted; we are “set on high.” Indeed, according to Paul, we are in fact “seated with Christ in the heavenly places” (Ephesians 2:6). And in this seat of highest honor we share our Lord’s triumph over “all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come” (Eph.1:21)!
But there is more! Throughout the ages our ransomed lives will serve as the trophies of His amazing grace; angels will twirl in wonder at how each one of our lives show forth the exceeding riches God’s goodness.
But there’s more! While we yet live here upon this beleaguered planet, which is filled with devils and flooded with filth, we have unrestricted access into the Throne Room of Heaven. There we may come boldly and call upon the Lord. And He will answer us, and be with us in trouble. He will deliver us, and honor our faith!
But there is still more! Throughout the days of our lives the Lord Himself will satisfy us, and show us His salvation. “Blessed be the Lord, Who bears our burdens and carries us day by day, even the God Who is our salvation and will make our journey prosperous!” (Psalm 68:19, Amplified Bible, and 1899 Douay-Rheims Bible).
What cause have you, my friend, to be anything less than fully satisfied beyond belief!
