From the time he was a young shepherd in the wilderness, David had a deep relationship with God. He escaped enough dangerous situations to know that God was always with Him, and was his deliverer.
Psalm 91:1–2 says, “Whoever 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.’”
This psalm is famous for its descriptive language. We can see a picture of this in our minds. And the specific things listed in this passage are very personal for each of us.
We are not to fear.
When we call on God, He hears us.
His angels watch over us.
One of the most beautiful images in the Bible is found in this psalm, as God, like a strong eagle, covers us with his wings so that we are protected.
Remember the words of Psalm 91 and call on Him day or night.
Lord, your protection for us is just one of the things that separate you from anyone or anything else. We are grateful for your wings that draw us near and cover us. Amen.
