Our Scripture Of The Week Is:

Psalm 91:1-2 KJVS
[1] He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
[2] I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.

We cannot be sure who wrote this psalm, but its author was well acquainted with the importance and benefits of trusting in the Lord. A "shelter" provides safety from a storm or enemy.
The term "Most High" comes from the Hebrew el'yon' and specifically implies something "upper," "above," or "highest."

The implication is that God is superior to all other powers and supreme above any other deity.
There is no safer shelter than what the Most High provides! The reference to God as "Most High" is seen elsewhere in Scripture.

Genesis 14:21–24 famously records Abram's response to the king of Sodom when he offered Abram a reward for rescuing hostages. Abram said he had sworn to the Lord, God Most High, promising not to accept anything from the ruler of that infamously depraved kingdom. The psalmist refers to the "shadow" of God.

In literal terms, a shadow provides little protection, itself. The imagery, however, is of someone who is close enough, and protected enough, that the shadow of their protector is on them. Further, the psalmist will "abide" there, implying a committed, consistent closeness with the Lord.

The writer testifies that God is his refuge and fortress, using words that imply places of safety and security (Psalm 91:1–2). This continues the theme of God's protection and provision. The psalmist refers to the Lord as both a "refuge" and a "fortress." A "refuge" is a place people can fall back to in times of hardship or danger.

A fortress is similar, but the typical "fortress" is a building designed for battle. It provides safety from an attacking enemy and gives those inside the means to withstand an assault. The ultimate security offered by God is eternal.

Jesus promises His followers eternal life, without any possibility of being taken away from God (John 10:28–30).

The apostle Paul wrote that nothing can separate the Lord's people from the love of Christ (Romans 8:35–39).

He added that we are more than conquerors over all kinds of trouble, including intense persecution and deprivation, "through him who loved us" (Romans 8:37). Here, the psalmist declares that the Lord is his God, and he trusts in Him. As our refuge and fortress, the Lord merits our full confidence.

We will now get deep into today’s discussion:

A great principle of revelation occurs for the first time in this chapter, but it will be found again and again in the Word of God. It is one of the fingerprints of inspiration. It is the law of recurrence or the law of recapitulation.

In other words, the Spirit of God, in giving the Word of God, has a practice of stating briefly a series of great facts and truths; then He will come back and take out of the series that which is all–important, and He will elucidate and enlarge upon that particular thing.

He is going to do this now in chapter 2 with the six days of creation which were given in chapter 1.
This same principle is seen in the Book of Deuteronomy. Deuteronomy is the interpretation of the Law after forty years of experience with it in the wilderness. Deuteronomy is not just a repetition of the Law, but rather an interpretation of it.

Likewise, we are given not only one but four Gospels. Again and again, this procedure is followed throughout the Word of God.

In chapter 2 that which is lifted out of the six days of creation is that which pertains to man, and we begin with the Sabbath Day.
