I Am Seated With Him On High
Because he has loved Me… I will set him securely on high because he has known My Name. –Psalm 91:14b
To be set securely on high is the second promise to those who love the Lord and know Him by Name. What all is there to know about a name? When God wanted to show the people something important about Himself or about His promises in the Old Testament, He would make it known by revealing another one of His covenant Names. His Name revealed Himself: Jehovah Jireh is above lack, Jehovah Rapha is higher than sickness, and Jehovah Shalom is above a restless mind. We see this theme of His Name above all other names also in Ephesians 1:20-21; 2:6 …which He brought about in Christ, when He raised Him from the dead, and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places, far above all rule and authority and power and dominion and every name that is named, not only in this age, but also in the one to come… and raised us up with Him, and seated us with Him in the heavenly places, in Christ Jesus.
God pulls us up to where He is! Our vantage point is greatly improved when we are seated with Him on high.
Notice that this verse Psalm 91:14, uses the word “known.” Do you know Him by Name? These promises come out of a “knowing” relationship. This is not an “impersonal” God with whom you don’t interact. This promise is connected to knowing His Name.
In the first two sentences of Psalm 91, the psalmist refers to God by four different names. God is The Most High, revealing that He is the highest that exists. God is called The Almighty, denoting that He is the most powerful. He is referred to as The Lord, revealing ownership. Then the writer calls Him My God, making it personal. This promise of being seated securely on high is reserved for the one who experiences God intimately, then God says that the promises are ours.
Pray Out Loud.
Lord, I’m so thankful I know You, and I’m learning more and more about You. You have given me Your authority and seated me on high with You. Help me to see myself there. In the Name of Jesus. Amen
Pray Psalm 91.
