Grace and peace on your Tuesday Dear Hearts
I’m reading Psalm 91 again today, letting the promises soak into my soul (my mind, my will and my emotions). These verses have sustained us throughout the chaos of 2020/2021 and there’s no reason to imagine they won’t withstand whatever may present itself going forward, for all time.
The Word of the Lord will not pass away.Matthew 24:35, Mark 13:31 & Luke 21:33
Psalm 91 represents security for Any One Who Trusts in and relies on the Lord Jesus Christ. He is the same yesterday, today and forever. (Hebrews 13.8)
I love Amplified Bible (AMP) translation of this favorite Psalm. It is so rich and encouraging.
1 He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High Will remain secure and rest in the shadow of the Almighty [whose power no enemy can withstand].Psalm 91 (The Amplified Bible)
2 I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress, My God, in whom I trust [with great confidence, and on whom I rely]!”
3 For He will save you from the trap of the fowler, And from the deadly pestilence.
4 He will cover you and completely protect you with His pinions, And under His wings you will find refuge; His faithfulness is a shield and a wall.
5 You will not be afraid of the terror of night, Nor of the arrow that flies by day,
6 Nor of the pestilence that stalks in darkness, Nor of the destruction (sudden death) that lays waste at noon.
7 A thousand may fall at your side And ten thousand at your right hand, But danger will not come near you.
8 You will only [be a spectator as you] look on with your eyes And witness the [divine] repayment of the wicked [as you watch safely from the shelter of the Most High].
9 Because you have made the Lord, [who is] my refuge ,Even the Most High, your dwelling place,
10 No evil will befall you, Nor will any plague come near your tent.
11 For He will command His angels in regard to you, To protect and defend and guard you in all your ways [of obedience and service].
12 They will lift you up in their hands, So that you do not [even] strike your foot against a stone.
13 You will tread upon the lion and cobra; The young lion and the serpent you will trample underfoot.
14 “Because he set his love on Me, therefore I will save him; I will set him [securely] on high, because he knows My name [he confidently trusts and relies on Me, knowing I will never abandon him, no, never].
15 “He will call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will rescue him and honor him.
16 “With a long life I will satisfy him And I will let him see My salvation.”
