I Dwell In Him (by Fenny West)

I dwell in Him; in the secret place of the Most High. I abide under the shadow of the Almighty. My abode is Christ. Therefore no harm shall befall me; no disaster shall come near my resting place. 

He is my peace-Shalom, serenity, assurance and security. So I will fear no evil. He is with me, in me and for me. No weapon fashioned against me shall prosper. When the enemy comes, like a flood, the Holy Spirit will raise a standard against him. 

I will say of the Lord, “You are my Refuge and my Fortress. You are my hiding place, my rock, my shield, shelter and bulwark.” 

So when I go through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, because Jehovah Shammah, the Ever-present Lord, is always there. I will not be afraid of the terror by night or the plaque that walks the street at noonday. 

His Spirit is in me forever. He keeps in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on Him. 

When I go through the fire,  I know I am just walling through and the flame will not kindle upon me. I shall not be burnt. I know my Redeemer lives and is refining me, eliminating every dross, for the gold in me to surface to the glory of God. 

And when I go through the waters and the rivers, I shall not drown because the Everlasting Arms are underneath and the eternal God is my refuge. He loves me with an Everlasting love. I am the apple of His eyes. Greater is He that is in me, than he that is in the world. I am more than a conqueror and have overcome the world. 

Surely, my God shields me from the flower’s snares, loopholes, traps and ploys. I have wisdom more than my adversaries. I am streets ahead of my foes and enemies. 

My God prepares a banquet of sumptuous sup, divine dainties and delicatessen for me, right before my enemies and my cup overflows. 

Yes, because I have made Christ, my dwelling place, no harm will befall me. No disaster will come near my house. A thousand may fall at my side, ten thousand at my right hand. But the evil will not come near me. Only with my eyes will I see the punishment of the wicked. 

Praise the Lord, Who has given His angels charge over me, to keep me in all my ways. They are ministering spirits called to be minister to me, an heir of salvation. Therefore I will tread on the lion and the cobra under my feet -where they belong. 

Because I have given Christ first place, set Him as my first love, He will honour me and set me high above the rock. Before I call, He will hear and while I am still praying, He will answer. I acknowledge His holy, powerful and matchless Name Above every other name. With long life of health, vitality, abundance and relevance and productivity He will satisfy me and show me His salvation.
