Psalm 91

The 91st Psalm 

1 Whoever 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 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 say, “The Lord is my refuge,”
and you make the Most High your dwelling,
10 no harm will overtake 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 on the lion and the cobra;
you will trample the great lion and the serpent.

14 “Because he loves me,” says the Lord, “I will rescue him;
I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.
15 He will call on me, and I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble,
I will deliver him and honor him.
16 With long life I will satisfy him
and show him my salvation.”

I love this chapter in Psalms and as a single mom, I have taken great comfort in knowing that the King of Kings and Lord of Lords is protecting me. Night and day, He watches over me and my children. Night and day, He sends angels to protect us and keep us safe.

Let this passage speak to you, as it has to me, my sweet single mom friend.

Take time to meditate on the words. Let the words sink into your heart.

In your journal or notebook, write this passage out in your own words. Write down what you feel God is saying to you in this passage.

Write a prayer of praise, thanking God for His protection. Express your gratitude for the strong wings that He shelters us under.

He longs to shelter you and your children. Abide in Him. He is waiting and He loves you and your children so much! Read this passage again and let the God who loves you speak to your heart.

If you need prayer today, contact me. If you are ready to accept Jesus into your life, contact me. God loves you and so do I.
