Psalm 91 31 July 2014

I Dwell In The Shelter Of The Most High

Psalm 91:

1 He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. 2 I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” 3 Surely he will save you from the fowler’s snare and from the deadly pestilence. 4 He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge, his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.

5 You will not fear the terror of the 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 your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you. 8 You will only observe with your eyes and see the punishment of the wicked.

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

14 “ Because he love me,” says the Lord, “I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name. 15 He will 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.”



Heavenly Father, Lord of all creation hide us beneath the shadow of your wings. Be our refuge and shelter; our dwelling place always. Thank you for always being near, thank you for your Son. I pray for those who serve you; protect them Lord and heal them from the plague that has struck Africa, “Ebola”. You would not have shown me your word in Psalm 91 if you had no intention of accomplishing what you say and for that I praise you. Be exalted O God in the midst of all these events of war, famine, pestilence and plagues. Your unfailing love is always near to those who are still  living and those who have gone to sleep, they sleep in you. Your are faithful and your mercy,  who can comprehend?  Thank you Lord, thank you, blessed be the Name of the Lord.

In Christ Jesus, amen
