Tonight we are going to discuss that there is safety in abiding in the presence of the Lord. We look everywhere else and to everyone else; when we should be putting our trust and guidance in the Lord. He is the one that will let no weapon to form against you to prosper. He is the one in times past, if you would remember, has delivered you through your darkest hour. He even has delivered you during your worst midnight hour delivering joy, just as He promised He would, that joy would come in the morning. If you would just think back, it is the Lord who has answered your prayers and been there during your most difficult times. It was the Lord when everyone abandoned you and left you to fend for yourself. It was the Lord who healed your body and brought you through especially when the doctor’s didn’t have the answers and simply gave up on you. Or it was the Lord who stood beside you in the courtroom because all you could afford was a court appointed attorney who made you wonder whose side was he on and where did he get his training. Then you stood in amazement when you should have gotten sixty to life; you’re given ninety days and three years probation. I myself have personally witnessed the Lord in these various circumstances. These are not stories I heard or read but lived. We will use the scriptures in Psalm 91:14-16 as the backdrop for discussion. Where David says, “Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him; I will set him on high, because he has known My name. He shall call upon 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.” This will be our topic of discussion tonight and hopefully someone from the listening audience leaves knowing there is safety in the presence of the Lord.
