Today’s Scripture Reading: Psalms 1-2; Psalm 10, Psalm 33; Psalm 71; Psalm 91
Our Heavenly Father knew we would need a safe place from time to time; Psalm 91 gives us perfect directions to that safe place.
S-T-O-P, get your Bible and read Psalm 91 out loud– I would suggest doing this each night before you go to bed if you suffer from a wild imagination in the horizontal position!
Every verse of Psalm 91 is encouragement for those of us who battle fear, whether it’s once in a while or every day :
- If you “live” close enough to God that He could shelter you from the rain, you WILL FIND REST (91:1).
- There is no other person or piece of equipment that can compare to the safe refuge I have in God—He can be trusted (91:2).
- He will hide me from danger like a mama bird protects her new-born chicks (91:4).
- His faithful promises are my armor and protection; no one or nothing can penetrate (91:4).
- God knows we’re prone to night fear; He tells us not to be afraid of the night or the day (91:5).
- The Lord knows how our minds can go crazy at night and turn a small pain into a terminal disease; He says, “don’t dread disease or disaster!” (91:6).
- It doesn’t matter if a pandemic is going on, these evils will not touch you (91:7).
- Hide and watch—the wicked will be punished! (91:8)
- There are some “IF” conditions to His Promises— (91:8)
- If you make the Lord your refuge
- If you make the Most High your shelter
- THEN— (91:10-13)
- No evil will conquer you
- No plague will come hear your home
- He will order His angels to protect you WHEREVER you go
- You will trample upon lions and cobras
- You will crush fierce lions and serpents under your feet
- Here’s the kind of people God rescues— (91:14)
- Those who love Him
- Those who trust His name
- If you do these two things you can know—
- When you call on God, He WILL answer
- He will be with you in your times of trouble
- He will rescue and honor you
- You will be rewarded by your Heavenly Father with a long life
- He will give you His salvation Psalm 91:15-16
To Psalms 91 add these two verses:
- For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength. Philippians 4:13
- No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. Romans 8:37 (NIV)
Thanks to our Heavenly Father and the promises He made in His Word, we can enjoy rest from our fear and worries in His safe place.
Resting Under His Wings!
