Covenant of Protection III
In this Covenant of Protection series we’ve discussed verses 1-12 and are now looking at the final verses 13 through 16:
"Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet.
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.
He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him. With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation." (Psalm 91:13-16, King James Version)
In these verses we learn that we have dominion over the lion and the adder and serpent (symbolic of wicked men and the enemy). God is always with us, when we're in the midst of trouble we call out to Him and He will answer and deliver us out of the trouble.
We can be confident in the covenant God has made with us when we fully understand it; that should give us comfort and hope in troubling times.
Psalm 91 gives me courage and hope. I pray that as you continue to become rooted in these precious promises from God, you too will walk in courage and hope in your Covenant of Protection.
