God Protects Those Who Trust in Him

I read a post this morning entitled, “Abiding with Father God,” that prompted me to share with you one of the few Bible texts that I have memorized–Psalms chapter 91. If you haven’t had the chance to read it yet, here it is in in King James’ version:

“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. For 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.”

If you could just take the time to reflect on these words, you will see how beautiful and comforting they are. These wonderful words speak of God as the protector of those who trust in him. These verses give us a promise that the Lord will shelter those who trust in him from harm and deliver those who have faith in him from suffering.

 Whenever you fell troubled at heart, let Psalm 91 comfort, strengthen  and assure you of God’s Protection from all dangers. Let it remind you that you will always be safe in the hands of the almighty, so you need not worry.

  1. So comforting. I would love to memorize more scripture, like you did with the verses above. I’m starting slow but I’m working on it 🙂
    Sending love your way my new friend~

    • Thanks for your comment Robin. Starting slow is the best way to immerse yourself in it. We are all constant works in progress, just keep chipping away! God bless you!
