If you are from the same generation as me you will probably think of the film “Airplane” when you hear the word surely!
The word was used many times for the same joke in that film.
The word surely is also used in Scripture but for a much better purpose.
When we see the word “surely” in Scripture this is giving us a promise.
The Psalmist in Psalm 91 is giving us a promise from God with regards to our future.
We can rest assured of His protection and His safety when we read Psalm 91 v 3.
Verse 3 does not start with “now and again”, “sometimes” or “maybe”.
He will protect us from the work of the enemy and from disease; that is a promise.
But this is old covenant Vic I can hear you cry.
Yes, but these promises are also delivered under the new covenant so they are valid for us as well.
Jesus died to provide healing, or deliverance from pestilence, as part of the sozo package.
We have the Word of God, which we can use against the enemy, just as Jesus did on the wilderness.
So this promise in Psalm 91 v 3 is for you and me living under the new covenant.
Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord that you will deliver us from the ways of the enemy and from all diseases”.
Psalm 91 v 3…..Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence
