He that dwelleth in the secret place of the Most High God shall abide under shadow of the Almighty God. I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God, in Him will I trust. Surely He shall deliver me from the snares from the noisome pestilence.
If we were to sub title today's message it could be God our Security Blanket, because this entire Psalm describes God providing protection for His people.
Given the kind of protection God provides, believers can walk boldly proclaiming the message of Christ even in the midst of a hostile environment. Verses two through four supports the above statement by stating that God is our refuge, our fortress and He covers us under His mighty wings as His truth shall be our shield and buckler. With that in mind, believers are assured of His deliverance.
It is worth noting that even when surrounded with sin and all manner of wickedness, and we are, we are to have complete confidence and trust in the Lord as there is no failure in Him. Why? Because God promised never to leave nor forsake His own and all promises are kept. Reflect on Daniel in the Lion's den and Daniel using the lion as a pillar-complete trust in God. There are other notables in the Bible where God's protection was on display. All believers can testify of God's protection on his/her lives.
God the Holy Spirit is our protector.
