Psalm 91

Consider the words of this Psalm. They bring great comfort for whatever situation you may find yourself in. Take a moment, read and trust. Beautiful isn’t it?

Psalm 91

Those who live in the shelter of the Most High will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty.

This I declare about the Lord: He alone is my refuge, my place of safety; he is my God, and I trust him. For he will rescue you from every trap and protect you from deadly disease.

He will cover you with his feathers. He will shelter you with his wings. His faithful promises are your armor and protection.

Do not be afraid of the terrors of the night, nor the arrow that flies in the day.

Do not dread the disease that stalks in darkness, nor the disaster that strikes at midday.

Though a thousand fall at your side, though ten thousand are dying around you, these evils will not touch you.

Just open your eyes, and see how the wicked are punished.

 If you make the Lord your refuge, if you make the Most High your shelter, no evil will conquer you; no plague will come near your home.

For he will order his angels to protect you wherever you go. They will hold you up with their hands so you won’t even hurt your foot on a stone.

You will trample upon lions and cobras; you will crush fierce lions and serpents under your feet!

 The Lord says, “I will rescue those who love me. I will protect those who trust in my name.

 When they call on me, I will answer; I will be with them in trouble. I will rescue and honor them.

 I will reward them with a long life and give them my salvation.”

    Over and over, I return to the Psalms for peace and comfort. And for encouragement.

    I guess I’ve seen far too many people claim as promises a biblical perspective only to be very disappointed. For instance, this psalm says, “Do not dread the disease that stalks in darkness, nor the disaster that strikes at midday.
    Though a thousand fall at your side, though ten thousand are dying around you, these evils will not touch you.” I could tell you dozens of stories of people who claimed that as a promise only to be devastated by those very evils. Maybe not from an eternal perspective, but certainly from a “here and now” perspective.

    So when you read psalms of this nature, do you see them as promises or as perspective?

    I would have to say a bit of both. I know that I can absolutely experience/suffer some or all of the things mentioned in this Psalm, yet I know that no matter what I may face, God is with me, he knows “all of me” and he has not forgotten me and when I am called home, all of the trials of this life will be no more.
