He who 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 make the Most High your dwelling,
even the Lord, who is my refuge,
then no harm will befall 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 upon 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 upon Me and I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble
I will deliver him and honor him
with long life will I satisfy him
And show him My salvation.”
This Bible verse has been coming to mind most of the time, especially when I am battered with life’s storm and are filled with doubts and dismay. Well, life is always full of discouragement. It is impossible to make them disappear for good or are they going to disappear for good?
Well, I don’t think so. I guess having disappointment in life can be a good thing, too. Why not? It does help you to grow anyway. It does make me pray more instead. Psalms 91:2 remind me that God is our refuge and our fortress, the God that we can trust. Yes, I am truly going to trust God till the end. Sometimes, we may not like the way things are being plan and done, but still we need to be obedient and trust God on the best plan that He has for us, cause we al knew that the plans are for good and not for disaster, to give us a future and a hope (Jeremiah 29:11).
It is not as easy as saying it, things might just come our way and I can just tell you that it won’t be good. Struggling is the best word I can describe for this. Struggling to overcome and get through it is not easy but the one pair of footprints on the sand remind me that God is actually carrying me, when I’m in pain, he is even more painful. I would never give up no matter what. I would also want to encourage all my friends to be encourage by this Psalm.
