Dwelling Under the Shelter, Part 1
Psalm 91 lets us know that God is with us and that we don’t have to be fearful. We live in a world controlled by fear. Many fearful situations and circumstances surround us. We must learn to have confidence in the plan and purpose of God Almighty. He will carry us through.
Man creates an algorithm that controls things. We have used the algorithm in our creative capability to create a Jesus to fit human desire who operates in mankind’s algorithm. That invented Jesus has no power. In reality, Jesus IS the algorithm—the vertical, the horizontal, and the diagonal reality. We need to operate in Him. In Psalm 91, we are reminded that God IS our protection.
Learn to personalize Psalm 91. Put your name in it. “I dwell in the shelter of the Most High.” Pray it for another person, with their name in it. Realize that God’s will is contained and revealed in Psalm 91.
This Psalm is also used by God to create an image of Himself—that He and He alone is our protector. The imagery in Psalm 91 is powerful. For additional insights, listen to this message delivered by Dr. Dowdy on August 16, 2020. And join us next week for more!
Psalm 91:1-4 NKJV
He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High
Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress;
My God, in Him I will trust.”
Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler
And from the perilous pestilence.
He shall cover you with His feathers,
And under His wings you shall take refuge.
Psalm 91:1-4 AMP
He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High
Will remain secure and rest in the shadow of the Almighty [whose power no enemy can withstand].
I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress,
My God, in whom I trust [with great confidence, and on whom I rely]!”
For He will save you from the trap of the fowler,
And from the deadly pestilence.
He will cover you and completely protect you with His pinions,
And under His wings you will find refuge;
His faithfulness is a shield and a wall.

Foundation Scripture for LOJWC Ministry:
“For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.” Mark 11:23
What We Believe:
We believe in God, the Father, Almighty, and in Jesus Christ, his only begotten Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried. On the third day he rose again according to Scripture. He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of God the Father, from whence he shall come to judge the living and the dead. We believe in the Holy Spirit, the third person of the God-head, who revealed himself on the day of Pentecost. We believe in the gifts of the Spirit and their continuous operation in the body of Christ. And we believe in one holy, universal, and apostolic church. Amen.
We conduct spiritual warfare. It begins with us as we speak God’s word and speak to our bodies, minds, and emotions. Therefore we make a faith confession which says: “Satan, in the Name of Jesus, I declare this body a sickness-disease-free zone. Every germ, virus, bacterium, etc., that touches this body dies instantly in the name of Jesus, who bore my sicknesses, carried my diseases, and by whose stripes I have been healed. Therefore I command life into every cell in this body, I receive healing for my emotions from every past embedded hurtful, fearful memory. I speak active deliverance from the law of sin and death, according to the finished works of Jesus the Christ, the anointed and His anointing.”
