I do not know about you, but for me – outside of God’s love, the world is a very scary place. How can anybody not be afraid when there is so much that we are not in control of? But beloved, when we know God as Father, we can trust Him, and we can be confident that Father will protect us.
Psalm 91 has no author listed. I believe that Father made it this way because this Psalm comes directly from Him to each of His children.
Security of the One Who Trusts in the LORD
He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High
Will abide in the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say to the LORD, “My refuge and my fortress,
My God, in whom I trust!”
For it is He who delivers you from the snare of the trapper
And from the deadly pestilence.
He will cover you with His pinions,
And under His wings you may seek refuge;
His faithfulness is a shield and bulwark.
You will not be afraid of the terror by night,
Or of the arrow that flies by day;
Of the pestilence that stalks in darkness,
Or of the destruction that lays waste at noon.
A thousand may fall at your side
And ten thousand at your right hand,
But it shall not approach you.
You will only look on with your eyes
And see the recompense of the wicked.
For you have made the LORD, my refuge,
Even the Most High, your dwelling place.
No evil will befall you,
Nor will any plague come near your tent.
For He will give His angels charge concerning you,
To guard you in all your ways.
They will bear you up in their hands,
That you do not strike your foot against a stone.
You will tread upon the lion and cobra,
The young lion and the serpent you will trample down.
“Because he has loved Me, therefore I will deliver him;
I will set him securely on high, because he has known My name.
“He will call upon Me, and I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble;
I will rescue him and honor him.
“With a long life I will satisfy him
And let him see My salvation.”
In order to fully dwell under the shelter of the Most High we need to be totally dependent on Him. We have to relate to God as our Father. We relate to God as Father, beloved one, by trusting in Him, by dwelling under His presence, by carrying our hearts humbly before Him, and by relying on Him to protect us.
Read Psalm 91 daily for the next 30 days.
