Mosquito Repellent Hides a Person from the Insects Sensors

In Hebrew the word ñÈúÇø (say’-ther) literally means “a hiding place - to cover, to hide covertly or secretly”. In fact Psalm 32:7 it is translated as “hiding place” - “You are my hiding place: you will protect me from trouble and surround me with songs of deliverance.”

Did you know that mosquito repellants don’t actually “repel” at all? They hide you.

The spray blocks the mosquito’s sensors so they don’t know where you are.

In much the same way God can become our trouble repellant.

He doesn’t always dispel troubles

from our lives but He can hide us from them!

In this secret place there is special protection and provision for those who believe God and trust Him to be their God in every situation and circumstances.

From a sermon by Dean Courtier, Psalm 91 - A conditional promise? 11/17/2009
