Topic: Is God Your Dwelling Place? – by Pastor Raphael


Text: Psalms 91:9-10

“Because thou hast made the Lord, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation; There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.” Psalms 91:9-10 (KJV)

The New International Version quotes the opening scripture as, “If you say, ‘The Lord is my refuge,’ and you make the Most High your dwelling, no harm will overtake you, no disaster will come near your tent.” As a child of God, you need to be conscious of what you have and where you are. You have the name of Jesus Christ to use to bring blessings and victories to you (John 14:14).

Beloved, you are in Christ Jesus and Jesus Christ is in the Father; therefore, before the enemy can reach you he must, first of all, go through the Father and, secondly, through our Lord Jesus Christ (John 14:20). This makes you secure in God; He becomes a refuge and your dwelling place for you. Is this not wonderful? This makes you free of sickness because God and Jesus Christ will protect you from diseases and all manner of evil. Even if you are attacked by any illness, they will heal you and keep you in good health. Hallelujah! Glory to the Highest!


My dear heavenly Father, thank You for helping me to understand the mystery of my relationship with You. Indeed, I am in Jesus Christ, and Jesus Christ is in You. Therefore, I’m fortified and protected from the opposition and pressures of the world. Glory to Your name. Amen!
