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.” Psalm 91:1-2
This psalm offers security for God’s children-those who commit themselves to his plans and protection and who live with a constant awareness of God’s presence. The more time we spend communicating with Christ, learning from his Word and serving his purposes, the greater our peace. Also, we are more likely to recognize and experience a greater sense of freedom in times of trouble and danger.
The four names of God in this psalm describe different aspects of his protection.
- “Most High” shows him to be greater than threat we face.
- “Almighty” emphasizes his power to confront and destroy every enemy.
- “The Lord” assures us that as the leader and authority in our lives, his presence and guidance are always with us
- “My God” expresses the truth that God has chosen to have a deep, personal relationship with those who trust in him.
