Psalm 91:1

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.” 
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.

The Personal Promise
of Psalm 91

Psalm 91 is a short poem of comfort written millennia ago, and it makes great boasts.

For generations, it has comforted a nation: in letters passed down to children, as a mantra for soldiers going off to war, and as a lullaby sung on many dark nights.

There’s no magic power in the words, but there’s might behind them. This Psalm was breathed out by the Spirit of God, pledging promises of protection to his children. They’re powerful words because their keeper is the Almighty. They’re strong words from a strong God.

The Psalm begins with,

"Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High
    will rest in the shadow of the Almighty" (Psalm 91:1 NIV).

Quite a privilege. Quite the promise. The only catch is, it’s personal. This poem belongs to someone; not everyone. This Psalm rehearses the precious promises of protection from the Most High God to those who belong to him. The next verse follows,

"I will say of the Lord, 'He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust'" (Psalm 91:2 NIV).

Do you see the level of intimacy here? My refuge. My fortress. My God, in whom I trust.

Can you say with the Psalmist, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust?” Do you find yourself under the shadow of the Almighty?

I call on you, my God, for you will answer me; turn your ear to me and hear my prayer. Show me the wonders of your great love, you who save by your right hand those who take refuge in you from their foes. Keep me as the apple of your eye; hide me in the shadow of your wings from the wicked who are out to destroy me, from my mortal enemies who surround me.
