9. Because thou hast made the Lord, which is my refuge, even the Most High, thy habitation.
10. There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.
11. For He shall give His angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.
12. They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone. KJV.

This is the middle of Psalm 91. We are told that if we make Him our refuge or habitation, we will be safe from evil. I believe that this is saying that where God lives is safety. We need His presence in our homes. God inhabits the praises of His people. We need to be a house filled with His praises, not only physical but spiritual.
He does not go where He is not invited. We must do the bidding. The more we pray, sing and worship, the more of Him we can expect. If we never pray or worship, then we should not expect to be safe. If we make Him our refuge, then we will not be going to unsafe places.
Revelation 18:4 I then heard another voice from heaven saying, Come out from her, my people, so that you may not share in her plagues. Amp.
The scripture is talking about Babylon. We must be so careful that we do not mix the world with our Christianity. Many Churches have allowed the spirit of the world in the Church and that brings death or desolation. It mainly gives forth the witness that you do not have to come out from the world and be separate.
We must always pray for the Holy Spirit to lead us to the right Church. There are so many Mega Churches that are so big. And because of their size the worship is filled with the distraction of many walking around causing much distraction. Many do not reverence the Lord and hinder those who do.
I go to a small Church that I believe is just right. You can get to know the people and really feel the love of God. Our Pastor and His wife have been there for 16 years and have never stopped midweek services no matter how few attended. They have been so diligent and faithful. And it shows in their children and the church. The Pastor has had a full-time job besides being the Pastor the whole time and has never wavered. We must be discerning about where we attend. A good tree is known by their fruit. That does not always mean numbers but the quality of the fruit.
Psalm 107:32 Let them exalt Him also in the congregation of the people and praise Him in the company of the elders. Amp.
