God Will Provide
So how does one qualify for the incredible promises that God has made for us? Are you questioning whether God will provide for you or if God will protect you? Is it only for the select few that God chooses? Is it God’s choice at all? Or is the invitation open to any and all. And if it is, how does one qualify for it?
In the old testament, the book of Psalms was written by King David, the second King of Israel. His back story is amazing but I won’t get into that now. Let it suffice to say that He did some really awful things when He was king, but all the time retained a close relationship with God, so that at the end of his life, God refers to David as “A man after God’s Heart”
The following is something David wrote that literally tells us unequivocally how to walk through life under God’s protective hand, (also referred to as dwelling under the shadow of the Almighty) so that no harm will befall you, and you will go through life with God’s blessings overtaking you where ever you go.
The 91st Psalms is short but incredibly significant, and is basically in two parts.
1. He describes the nature of the protection, then he tells you how anyone can qualify for it by taking some very simple steps. The first part of the 91st Psalms says this:
