Unlike kanye, I am not a God. The rapper released a song this week in which he claims to be a god. I am a human being. I am prone to wander, susceptible to sicknesses, frail. I have moments when I shine, than those other times when I suck. Welcome to the human race. But that does not make me weak, because I know who is God and He has promised me a victorious life. I am more than a conqueror.
I’m afflicted in every way – but I am not crushed; perplexed, but not driven to despair; persecuted, but not destroyed. I may carry in my body the death of Christ, but because of His death I live. I’m sick, yet I’m healed.
I have set the Lord always before me; because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved. Psalm 16:1
Therefore, I declare that I shall not be moved by:
the snare of the fowler… from all the devices of Satan… lies, slander, evil plots and conspiracies
the deadly pestilence… all dangerous maladies… If I don’t have it, I refuse to get it. If I do, it will not make me, nor break me
the terror of the night… treasons, plunder, robbery, and murder… the demons that walk by night
the arrow that flies by day… the arrow of the angel of death shot in the day time
the pestilence that stalks in darkness… hidden and unannounced and sudden tragedy… calamity…
the destruction that wastes at noonday… open and announced treats to hurt and harm through sudden tragedy… calamity
evil… sin, Satan, the world, and the flesh
plague… deadly and infectious disease… injurious outbreak
adder… Its poison kills without the possibility of a remedy. It’s said that it kills by way of sleep. In other words, spiritual slumber is its choice venom.
trouble… agitate mentally or spiritually : worry, disturb, stress, distress…
I dwell in the shelter of the most high.
I abide in the shadow of the Almighty
He covers me
His faithfulness is a shield and a buckler
He builds a hedge around me
He allows no evil to befall me
I tread on lions and adders and not harms me
He holds fast to me in love
He protects me, calls me by name, saves me from trouble
I declare today that I’m not moved!
Please see Psalm 91; Psalm 30
