July 22 Scripture Selection: Psalm 91-92
Food for Thought: Ps. 91; 92:12-15
With all the dangers that we could encounter on a daily basis, those produced by nature, by man, and by evil oppression, one would be a fool to take safety for granted. Thankfully, as believers in Jesus Christ and the Father, we have access to His Word that serves as a shield about us, and it is activated by our speaking it out in faith. (II Samuel 22:31 says, “As for God, His way is perfect; The word of the Lord is proven; He is a shield to all who trust in Him.”)
According to Proverbs 18:21, “Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit.” The psalmist knew this concept and exclaimed in Psalm 118:17, “I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the Lord.” What we say can, indeed, make the difference between life and death for us, and there is no source of words more powerful than the Word of God from which to draw.
So whether you are off to fight a battle, driving down a congested highway, or consulting a doctor—whatever you may be doing—don’t forget to take the Word with you. It should be in your mouth and in your heart (Rom. 10:8), and it will not return void, but will accomplish that which it is sent out to do (Is. 55:11).
