Snatched Away from Danger

"Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence" (Ps. 91:3 KJV).

God delivers you in different ways from different types of danger. And that deliverance can be based upon what type of person you are and what the type of situation it is. It can also depend upon what type of faith you are operating in, or lack there of.

Sometimes the way God delivers you out of a situation is to quickly remove you from it. That is the context of Psalm 91:3. The word deliver here means to snatch away. It means to pluck; to rescue. God will remove you from a situation of danger when you are dedicated to Him.

I don't know if you have ever been in a situation where the spirit of God said to leave now. But if you ever encounter such an ordeal, don't think about it. Don't question it. Just leave. Immediately obey. Get yourself out of there as fast as you can. You can think about it later. That snatching away is usually to save your life.

God loves you and He is in the business of saving your life. As you meditate on today's text, make it your confession of faith. Say, "The Lord snatches me away from danger and I am obedient to His leading."
