Safe and Secure
1When you sit enthroned under the shadow of Shaddai,
you are hidden in the strength of God Most High.
2He’s the hope that holds me and the Stronghold to shelter me,
the only God for me, and my great confidence.
3He will rescue you from every hidden trap of the enemy,
and he will protect you from false accusation
and any deadly curse.
4His massive arms are wrapped around you, protecting you.
You can run under his covering of majesty and hide.
His arms of faithfulness are a shield keeping you from harm.
5You will never worry about an attack of demonic forces at night
nor have to fear a spirit of darkness coming against you.
6Don’t fear a thing!
Whether by night or by day, demonic danger will not trouble you,
nor will the powers of evil launched against you.
7Even in a time of disaster, with thousands and thousands being killed,
you will remain unscathed and unharmed.
8you will be a spectator as the wicked perish in judgment,
for they will be paid back for what they have done!
9-10When we live our lives within the shadow of God Most High,
our secret hiding place, we will always be shielded from harm.
How then could evil prevail against us or disease infect us?
11God sends angels with special orders to protect you wherever you go,
defending you from all harm.
12If you walk into a trap, they’ll be there for you
and keep you from stumbling.
13You’ll even walk unharmed among the fiercest powers of darkness,
trampling every one of them beneath your feet!
14For here is what the Lord has spoken to me:
“Because you have delighted in me as my great lover,
I will greatly protect you.
I will set you in a high place, safe and secure before my face.
15I will answer your cry for help every time you pray,
and you will find and feel my presence
even in your time of pressure and trouble.
I will be your glorious hero and give you a feast.
16You will be satisfied with a full life and with all that I do for you.
For you will enjoy the fullness of my salvation!”
