Psalm 91:2 New Living Translation
“This I declare about the Lord: He alone is my refuge, my place of safety; He is my God, and I trust Him.”
The author of this Psalm is unknown, but the message is a familiar one. God’s protection is available to anyone who calls him or herself a child of God. A child of God is someone who has placed his faith in Jesus Christ. “To all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God” (John 1:12). You must be born again. “I tell you the truth, no one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again”. (John 3:3)
The Lord is a shelter of refuge against anything that might come against us. He is our protector who is with us thru every trial and tribulation we face in this life. We can trust Him to fulfill His word regarding protection because I am not aware of any failure on His part to not do what He has said He would do. That makes Him trustworthy. The author of this Psalm has placed His complete and total trust and reliance on God. Notice the author makes a point of saying that only God is his refuge and place of safety. There isn’t anywhere else to turn. The creator of the universe is more than capable of protecting His creation.
In light of all the tragic events that have been taking place throughout the world and even in our own backyard, so to speak, rest in the knowledge that God is aware of your every circumstance and will be with you at all times. Our senses betray us far too often. You have placed your faith in God, now trust Him and rest in that trust. Only that which God ordains shall take place in your life if you stay close to Him. Until next time, walk with the King and be a blessing!
