Psalm 91:9-10 If you make the Lord your refuge, if you make the Most High your shelter, no evil will conquer you; no plague will come near your home.
God’s people were bound in slavery. Tormented by those who worshipped stone idols, gods with no power. Their children stolen, the Hebrews lived in fear of their captors.
God sent a deliverer. His name: Moses. Never the same once he encountered the great I AM, Moses demonstrated His supremacy before the Egyptians. Yet they refused to let Israel go.
The Lord inflicted many plagues upon Egypt, from frogs to darkness. The final plague, the plague of death, was devastating. Yet it did not touch the Hebrews. Not because they were chosen. Not because God finally heard their cries for help. Not because of their works.
It was the blood.
Exodus 12:13 But the blood on your doorposts will serve as a sign, marking the houses where you are staying. When I see the blood, I will pass over you. This plague of death will not touch you when I strike the land of Egypt.
Today, those of Hebrew descent continue to celebrate this miracle. A remembrance of mercy and grace because of the blood.
The perfect Lamb of God was sacrificed on a Cross. His blood is a new sign. A more powerful covenant. No evil, no plague can touch, because of the blood of Jesus.
There is power in the blood. Plague must pass over. Satan will let you go. Apply Jesus’ blood around your life. You have perfect health. His blood never fails.

Psalm 91:5-8 Do not be afraid of the terrors of the night, nor the arrow that flies in the day. Do not dread the disease that stalks in darkness, nor the disaster that strikes at midday. Though a thousand fall at your side, though ten thousand are dying around you, these evils will not touch you. Just open your eyes, and see how the wicked are punished.
Disease, violence, tragedy, pain are natural in the ruined state of earth. Good people, die. Trustworthy ones, fall. Yet Scripture states, “These evils will not touch me.”
Is it presumptuous to assume I am above dread and calamity? Who am I to make such declarations when saints have fallen?
Experience does not change the Word.
Isaiah 54:17 But in that coming day no weapon turned against you will succeed. You will silence every voice raised up to accuse you. These benefits are enjoyed by the servants of the Lord; their vindication will come from me. I, the Lord, have spoken!
Many quote, “No weapon formed against me shall prosper.” The real truth lies in the latter portion of the verse: righteousness is of Me.
To base untouchability on my own efforts is presumptuous. I am misinformed to think confession or ability qualify me above attack.
I can proclaim, “Though ten thousand fall, evil will not touch me,” because my effort is nil. Jesus paid the price on the Cross. My righteousness is in Him. In Christ, no weapon formed against me shall prosper.
So it is not presumptious. It is not haughty or prideful. It is blood bought right.
Let the redeemed of the Lord say so. I am righteous through the blood, and no terror, disease, or disaster can touch me.
Psalm 91:4 He will cover you with his feathers. He will shelter you with his wings. His faithful promises are your armor and protection.
Anyone can make a promise. Not everyone can keep one. But God can.
2 Corinthians 1:20 For all the promises of God in Him are Yes, and in Him Amen, to the glory of God through us.
According to one person’s count, there are over 3500 promises in the Bible. All those promises are yes. Not maybe or conditional. They are yes and amen, or so be it, in Christ.
Not too many things in life come with a guarantee. Gadgets break, quick fixes fail, and people lie. Yet the God of Ages keeps His promises. Without a doubt. Yes and amen.
Through howling winds and devastating storms, wrap yourself in the feathers of His promises. You and your family are protected. He will bring you through. Hide in the secret place. Father’s got you covered.
Psalm 91:3 For he will rescue you from every trap and protect you from deadly disease.
Cancer. Stroke. Heart attack. Meningitis. Leukaemia. Asthma. Diabetes. Swine flu. The list of deadly diseases goes on. If you want to strike fear in the heart of man, mention the possibility of these deadly diseases.
Isaiah 65:23 (CEV) Their work won’t be wasted, and their children won’t die of dreadful diseases. I will bless their children and their grandchildren.
As a mother of young children, there is nothing worse than a sick child. My mother suffered from bronchiectasis from age two to thirty-two. She was not expected to live beyond forty. The sickness caused chronic pain and breathlessness. It was normal for her to cough up blood.
A dreadful disease, but for the healing power of Christ. At a healing crusade in 1984, my mother received healing. She was rescued from the fierce illness of bronchiectasis.
In the five short years of my son’s life, he has been threatened with asthma and pneumonia. Words spoken by doctors sent emotions of fear through my heart. Steadfast, I applied the Word of God: my children are protected from destructive diseases.
To the praise of His grace, all signs of asthma have vanished and pneumonia has never come near his body. The Lord rescued him.
If your life is terrorised by disease, claim God’s promises to you. Faith comes from the Word. Continue to stand.
I give God glory for His preservation of my family thus far, and continue to stand on the promise of protection from disease in the future. The Most High is faithful to rescue and protect.
