Psalm 91

 Finding safety by abiding in God's presence


Exodus 15:26 declares, "If you will diligently hearken to the voice of the Lord your God and will do what is right in His sight, and will listen to and obey His commandments and keep all His statutes, I will put none of the diseases upon you which I brought upon the Egyptians, for I am the Lord Who heals you."

     As the Hunters teach, God is a God of "our part" and "His part".   When we do our part by obeying the Lord out of love and respect for Him, then God will do His part by providing us with His blessings, including healing, peace and safety.

     May we keep in mind this important concept for successful living as we read and meditate on one of the most beloved passages in the Bible, Psalm 91, featured on this page as beautifully expressed in the Amplifed Bible.  


       God bless you!

  PSALM 91



1  HE WHO dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall remain stable and fixed under the shadow of the Almighty [Whose power no foe can withstand].  (a)


2  I will say of the Lord, He is my Refuge and my Fortress, my God; on Him I lean and rely, and in Him I [confidently] trust! 


3  For [then] He will deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the deadly pestilence. 


4  [Then] He will cover you with His pinions, and under His wings shall you trust and find refuge; His truth and His faithfulness are a shield and a buckler. 


5  You shall not be afraid of the terror of the night, nor of the arrow (the evil plots and slanders of the wicked) that flies by day, 


6  Nor of the pestilence that stalks in darkness, nor of the destruction and sudden death that surprise and lay waste at noonday. 


A thousand may fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand, but it shall not come near you. 


Only a spectator shall you be [yourself inaccessible in the secret place of the Most High] as you witness the reward of the wicked. 


Because you have made the Lord your refuge, and the Most High your dwelling place, (1) 


10  There shall no evil befall you, nor any plague or calamity come near your tent. 


11  For He will give His angels [especial] charge over you to accompany and defend and preserve you in all your ways [of obedience and service]. 


12  They shall bear you up on their hands, lest you dash your foot against a stone. (2)


13  You shall tread upon the lion and adder; the young lion and the serpent shall you trample underfoot. (3) 


14  Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore will I deliver him; I will set him on high, because he knows and understands My name [has a personal knowledge of My mercy, love, and kindness — trusts and relies on Me, knowing I will never forsake him, no, never]. 


15  He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him. 


16  With long life will I satisfy him and show him My salvation.






(a)  Psalm 91:1 The rich promises of this whole chapter are dependent upon one's meeting exactly the conditions of these first two verses (see Exodus 15:26).

  Points to Ponder


1.)  What are some ways I can incorporate more quiet time to get to know the Lord during my day?


2.)  What are things that God is showing me in regard to things I should stop doing, and things I should start doing, so that I can bring honor and respect to Him and enjoy the blessings He has in store for me?


3.)  What are some practical ways I can apply Psalm 91 to my life, especially when dealing with issues such as fear, intimidation, sickness, etc.?
