Psalm 91

Thanks to Annette for reminding me of Psalm 91. This is one psalm that I have memorized by heart and was really helpful to me two years ago when I was so filled with fear but 2 Timothy 1:7 says that fear is not from God, so it must be from the devil and that we allow it to be manipulated by the devil.

Saying out Psalm 91, especially in the night and my mind thinks of all sorts of things, teaches me to calm down and brings a lot of assurance to me. Praise the Lord! God brings me peace to my heart. :) at first, it did not do anything for me until I turned the Psalm to me personally as follows:

Psalm 91

 1  When I dwell in the shelter of the Most High 
   I will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
2 I will say  of the LORD, “You are my refuge and my fortress, 
   my God, in whom I trust.”
 3 Surely You will save me from the fowler’s snare 
   and from the deadly pestilence. 
4 You will cover me with Your feathers, 
   and under Your wings I will find refuge; 
   Your faithfulness will be my shield and rampart. 
5 I will not fear the terror of night, 
   nor the arrow that flies by day, 
6 nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, 
   nor the plague that destroys at midday. 
7 A thousand may fall at my side, 
   ten thousand at my right hand, 
   but it will not come near me. 
8 I will only observe with my eyes 
   and see the punishment of the wicked.

 9 If I make the Most High my dwelling— 
   even the LORD, who is my refuge— 
10 then no harm will befall me, 
   no disaster will come near my tent. 
11 For You will command Your angels concerning me
   to guard me in all Your ways
12 they will lift me up in their hands, 
   so that I will not strike my foot against a stone. 
13 I will tread upon the lion and the cobra; 
   I will trample the great lion and the serpent.

 14 “Because you love me,” says the LORD, “I will rescue you; 
"Because  you acknowledges my name, I will protect you".
15 I will call upon You and You will answer me; 
   You will be with me in trouble, 
   You will deliver me and honor me. 
16 With long life will You satisfy me
   and grant me Your salvation.”

God's words are true and He really has shown me the many many times He has rescues me, the many many times He loves me, even through my family and friends. :) His angels come and encamp around about me and my family. Oh Lord, I love you so very much. Thank You Jesus so much for Your love for me! I praise You Jesus! I exalt You, Lord, I magnify Your name! :)
