SAFE AND SECURE... PSALM  91.... ( Passion Translation ) 1..When you sit under the shadow of Shaddai, you are hidden in the strength of the Most High.   2..He's the hope that holds me,and the Stronghold to shelter me, the only God for me, and my great Confidence.  3..He will rescue you from false accusation and any deadly curse. 4...His massive arms are wrapped around you, protecting you.  You can run under the his covering of majesty and hide.  His arms of faithfulness are a shield keeping you from harm. 5..
