PSALM 91: Speak It!

Updated: Monday, March 30, 2020


Hi family! 

It has been and will continue to be my prayer that God keeps, protects, and gives His peace to you all. I have missed seeing your faces and worshipping in the sanctuary together, but I am grateful that technology allows us to stay connected. 

The Lord woke me early this morning and urged me to listen to a message my mentor, Dr. Michael Moore, and the message he shared with his church yesterday. I believe that the Spirit of God led me to hear this message so I can share it with you. If you have listened to anything from me in the last few weeks, it has been the need to confess Psalm 91. This morning, on our corporate fast prayer call, I again confessed Psalms 91 and also shared six confessions we should say daily that are directly out of Psalms 91. 

Revelation 12:11a states, "And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony...

The Blood of Jesus protects us, and we overcome by speaking it. 

Below are the six confessions Dr. Moore shared, and I want to share it with you. Please confess this daily and share it with those in which you are connected. God still says that this is the year of Undeniable Evidence. We will see the Hands of God move like never before. We will show the world evidence that GOD LIVES AND REIGNS! 

I love and miss you all. Stay safe and stay praying for us as we pray for you. 

Three General Truths of Psalm 91

  1. The secret place of the Most High is the believers' trust in God's Word. 
  2. Every kind of danger is ineffective against those who trust in God alone. 
  3. The believer's trust must be verbalized to be effective. 

Six Confessions from Psalms 91

  1. I am delivered from satanic traps and fatal diseases. (v. 3)
  2. I am not afraid because I have 24-hour protection. (v. 5-6)
  3. A thousand shall fall at my side and ten thousand at my right hand, but it shall not come near me. I see what's happening, but I don't experience it in my personal life. (v. 7)
  4. There shall no evil befall me, and no plague shall come near me, my family, or my home. (v. 10)
  5. God's angels surround me wherever I go and protect me from all evil. (v. 11-12)
  6. I am satisfied with long life, and I enjoy God's full plan for my life. (v. 16)

Prayerfully,

Pastor Steve O. Allen

WE STAND: A Message from Pastor Steve Regarding the Coronavirus Text

Updated: Friday, March 13, 2020

We thought that it was important that we reached out to each of you as we globally embark on our fight against the Coronavirus (COVID-19). 

Our position stands; we believe God for protection and healing during this time. 

 The Word of God is clear and full of evidence regarding God’s heart and power to protect and keep His children. With that being said, we are spirits who live in bodies and possess souls. If we are going to be victorious in our faith fights, we must minister to every part. Therefore, below we wanted to share some actions we are taking along with some practices we encourage you to take as well. 

CORPORATE PRACTICE: 

  • We have an incredible team here, Helping Hands, that ensures the cleanliness of the facilities before every service on Sundays and Wednesdays. We are working with that team to add additional practices— like wiping down frequently touched surfaces and doorknobs and bathroom handles between Sunday Worship Services. 
  • We have made sure there is hand sanitizer in 16 different locations around the sanctuary as well as hand soap in the restrooms. While you are here at worship service, if you notice any of these bottles or dispensers are empty, please see the nearest usher. We will work quickly to refill all containers. Hand sanitizer dispensers are located in the restrooms, the church foyer, the overflow, inside the sanctuary, the new members’ room, the connect room, and other frequently used offices. 
  • We will be using our air conditioners more frequently for proper ventilation. 
  • Brunch with Britt will be BYOB (Bring Your Own Brunch) until further notice. We will have individually wrapped snacks available following service, but please feel free to bring your brunch with you to nibble on as we fellowship in the overflow.  

PERSONAL PRACTICE:

Spiritual-

  • PRAY- Philippians 4:6-7 MSG says, "6-7 Don’t fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God’s wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. It’s wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life.” 
  • READ THE WORD- Below are some scriptures you can speak over yourself and your loved ones. 
    • 1 Corinthians 10:13
    • 2 Thessalonians 3:3
    • Deuteronomy 31:6
    • Isaiah 41:10
    • Psalms 91
    • Psalms 34
    • 2 Corinthians 4:8-9
    • John 10:10
  • STAY IN FAITH— Precaution is good. Panic is not. Panic often creeps in when we allow the world to speak to us more than God and His Word. So we want to encourage you to take extra time to feed your spirit man. Remind yourself what God has done and has provided for you. Plead the blood of Jesus. Ask the Holy Spirit to lead you. Incline your ears and expect to hear the Spirit of God lead you. Bring your cares to the Father and leave them there. 
  • ENCOURAGE- One of the best byproducts of corporate worship is that we can offer encouragement and strength to our brothers and sisters. Please do so even more. Text scriptures. Have prayer and devotion with your family. Get on the phone with friends and pray.

Natural- 

  • We are asking that you make safe choices like: 
    • Practice good hygiene— wash and sanitize your hands frequently. Avoid touching your face. And if you are not experiencing flu-like symptoms, but still find yourself having to sneeze or cough, make safe choices and point your face in the direction of your inner elbow and disinfect the area as soon as possible or use disposable tissues. 
    • If you belong to one of the higher risk groups, please be vigilant. This includes older adults and people who have serious chronic medical conditions like:
      • Heart disease
      • Diabetes
      • Lung disease
    • Respect the choice of your brothers and sisters who choose not to make or limit physical contact. It’s all love; let’s not take offense. 
    • If you are experiencing flu-like symptoms or have a family member who lives with you who is experiencing flu-like symptoms, stay home. You are more than welcome to check out the worship service online at www.facebook.com/DestinyLA Thankfully, technology has allowed us to engage our family even when we are unable to be in the physical location. Not only can you worship with us from home, but you are also welcome to give online here. 

Remember family-- we have victory over ALL things! I love you and I cannot wait to worship with you this weekend.
