The name of The Lord is a fortified tower;
the righteous run to it and are safe.
Whoever dwells in The shelter of The Most High
will rest in the shadow of The Almighty.
I will say of The Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress,
my God, in Whom I trust.”
Surely He will save you
from the fowler’s snare
and from the deadly pestilence.
He will cover you with His feathers,
and under His wings you will find refuge;
His faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
you will not fear the terror of night,
nor the arrow that flies by day,
nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness,
nor the plague that destroys at midday.
A thousand may fall at your side,
ten thousand at your right hand,
but it will not come near you.
you will only observe with your eyes and see the punishment of the wicked, Amen.
If you say, “The Lord is my Refuge,”
and you make the Most High your dwelling,
no harm will overtake you,
no disaster will come near your tent.
For He will command His angels concerning you
to guard you in all your ways;
they will lift you up in their hands,
so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.
you will tread on the lion and the cobra;
you will trample the great lion and the serpent.
“Because he Loves Me,” says The Lord, “I will rescue him;
I will protect him, for he acknowledges My Name.
he will call on 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.”
Y’all, as The Lord spoke and His Word IS, our enemy observed. he who was before time is aware of The Word.
In Jesus’ 40 days fast, he witnessed all that occured. In Hu-Man form Jesus underwent so much, He was led to the wilderness by The Spirit. What exactly each day was is unknown to us, when Moses and Elijah fasted for 40 days it is unknown just what occured, but they were all in The Father’s care! Their fast induced bodily weakness, but Spiritual strength, Amen.
In the above ‘share’ we see that the devil was present when The Word was spoken. Before time, he knew the Essence of The LORD. He was The Chief of angel’s; Created perfect. he walked among the fiery stones, Satan in his position allowed pride to set in.
We have a game I played as a child chanting “I think I can, I think I can…” Satan (then Lucifer thought in His spirit “I know I can!”
Primarily for God’s Love, he was cast from Heaven to Earth. Here, there are so many things to meditate on. In spirit, God’s creations are for always, hence – The fruit of Life that was in the garden of Eden. We read:
“ ‘you were the seal of perfection,
full of wisdom and perfect in beauty.
you were in Eden,
the garden of God;
every precious stone adorned you:
carnelian, chrysolite and emerald,
topaz, onyx and jasper,
lapis lazuli, turquoise and beryl.
your settings and mountings were made of gold;
on the day you were created they were prepared.
you were anointed as a guardian cherub,
for so I ordained you.
You were on the holy mount of God;
you walked among the fiery stones.
you were blameless in your ways
from the day you were created
till wickedness was found in you.
through your widespread trade
you were filled with violence,
and you sinned.
So I drove you in disgrace from the mount of God,
and I expelled you, guardian cherub,
from among the fiery stones.
your heart became proud
on account of your beauty,
and you corrupted your wisdom
because of your splendor.
So I threw you to the Earth;
I made a spectacle of you before kings.”
See pride out and humility in, Amen
