There is several promises of protection from our awesome God. I am believing for these promises for my family and friends. This Psalm encourages me that God is always with me, no matter what. I find secure comfort in these promises, and they have helped me through difficult times in my life and others lives I have prayed for. What’s funny is you can forget someone’s name that you prayed with, but you never forget their face and you can keep praying for them seeing their face. This is God’s gift to us, and He knows their name and ours. So praying is a in it to win it gift whether from your heart or speaking it out to God. Psalm 91 was an outdated testimony written by David himself.
It reads in Psalm 91:1-16 NIV:
Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” Surely he will save you from the fowler’s snare and from the deadly pestilence. He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart. You will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day, nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday. A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you. You will only observe with your eyes and see the punishment of the wicked. If you say, “The Lord is my refuge,” and you make the Most High your dwelling, no harm will overtake you, no disaster will come near your tent. For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways; they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone. You will tread on the lion and the cobra; you will trample the great lion and the serpent. “Because he loves me,” says the Lord, “I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name. He will call on me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him. With long life I will satisfy him and show him my salvation.”
