Psalm of Protection

The Book of Psalms was originally songs of praise and worship.

A very powerful chapter to read and embrace is Psalm 91 that talks about Godís protection and how He is a safe haven for the believer. When things are going crazy in your life it is good to know that God is our safety net and he will buffer the winds of the storm we are in.

Psalm 91 tells us that we do not need to be afraid of the things that go on around us. If we stand on and believe in the Word then we have to believe there are angels that are watching over us. Just knowing this should make us feel safe.

This Psalm says that we will be protected from our enemies and see our enemies defeated. As believers we have to know that we do not have to be afraid. We just have to hide His word in our hearts and call upon it when we need reassurance.

The Bible has words of encouragement to help us get through every storm of life, test, trial or tribulation. The Bible gives you wisdom on how to maneuver through this life and avoid the traps and pitfalls of the enemy. As you go through your daily life, you will find opposition, jealousy as well as times of peace and joy. We have the Bible to get us through all of these periods in our lives, good and bad.

Psalm 91 is a great scripture to read over and over again to keep you full of the grace and mercy of God and remembrance of His love for us. No matter what you are going through today just remember Godís promises to them that love Him and continue to pray, worship, stay confident and strong in your faith.

Psalm 91

He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.

I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.

Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.

He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.

Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;

Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.

A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.

Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.
Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation;

There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.

he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.
They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.

Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet.

Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.

He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.

With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.
King James Version (KJV)

Godís Blessings!
