LIVING IN HIS PRESENCE
Surely He shall deliver you from the snare (trap) of the fowler (one who catches birds in a trap) and from the perilous pestilence. Psalm 91:3
Living in the presence and under the Shadow of the Most High definitely has its benefits. The world has become a dangerous place and although we don't hear the word pestilence very often we have it in abundance!
The definition of the word pestilence is a destructive, infectious, swiftly spreading disease, a plague, pandemic or an outbreak! Truly it comes in many forms, but the one that stands out is drug addition that has killed millions of kids and adults. The snare of the trapper has caught his limit when it comes to dope!
Being a former addict myself and spending most of my adult life directing drug rehabs I can tell you as one of my students used to say, "There ain't no hope if your doing dope!" Drug addiction has cost billions of dollars with secular rehabs and self help gurus bilking the unsuspecting, charging up to $1000 per day, taking them through steps to bondage! "Beware of the snare!"
He shall cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you shall take refuge, His truth shall be your shield and buckler. Psalm 91:4
Your servant in Christ, Timothy Laughlin
