Psalm 91:4 Day 4
Psalm 91:2 “I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress,
my God, in whom I trust.”
The author of this Psalm made it a point to tell us what he was saying. We have no idea what he was feeling or experiencing but to the author that was not near as important as what he was saying. He understood that what you say is an integral part of our experiences.
The Bible tells us over and over that there is power in our words.
Prov. 18:21 “Death and life are in the power of the tongue.”
What we say directs our focus, our feelings, our expectations, and eventually our experiences. I am not only talking about what you are saying to others, but more importantly what you are saying to yourself, what you are saying when you look in the mirror, or what you are saying when no one is around to hear you. Keep in mind that the Psalms are a collection of letters, songs, poems, and personal reflections. The author wrote this without any idea that anyone would ever read it. So, when he said this – who was he talking to? To himself and of course God.
What are you saying? What are the first words out of your mouth in the morning? What is the narrative that goes on in your heart and head throughout the day? What you say will direct your focus, influence what you believe, and eventually determine what you experience.
So, let’s learn from the author of this Psalm. What you feel and what you are experiencing does not matter near as much as what you say, declare, or confess.
Say what you are believing God to do in your life. Declare the promises of God. Focus on what God declares not how you feel and watch as God makes our faith expressed in words come to pass.
Remember even when no one else is listening – God is!
Have a blessed day! PJS
