10 Promises from God in Psalm 91

The Bible is full of promises that God will protect us and provide for our needs. We don't always understand the promise at the moment, but we can trust that it will come to pass in God's perfect timing. In Psalm 46:1, the psalmist reminds us that ‘God is our refuge and strength.' He is always looking out to protect us. We may never see some of the dangers, but he keeps us from so many things seen or not.

Psalm 91 is a beautiful expression of God's protection and care for His people. As you study this Psalm, I hope you will be encouraged and strengthened in your faith.

The Story of Psalm 91

The psalmist, who is believed to be Moses, begins by praising God for His protection and then goes on to tell a story about how God protected him from danger. Moses had a lot of experience with danger. He and the Israelites wandered in the desert and faced the conditions of the desert for 40 years. Moses had no one to rely on but God, and he trusted God's protection.

This psalm is a reminder that we can always trust in God's protection. No matter what danger we face, we can know that God will be with us and will keep us safe.

Psalm 91 New Living Translation

1Those who live in the shelter of the Most High

will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty.

2 This I declare about the Lord:

He alone is my refuge, my place of safety;

he is my God, and I trust him.

3 For he will rescue you from every trap

and protect you from deadly disease.

4 He will cover you with his feathers.

He will shelter you with his wings.

His faithful promises are your armor and protection.

5 Do not be afraid of the terrors of the night,

nor the arrow that flies in the day.

6 Do not dread the disease that stalks in darkness,

nor the disaster that strikes at midday.

7 Though a thousand fall at your side,

though ten thousand are dying around you,

these evils will not touch you.

8 Just open your eyes,

and see how the wicked are punished.

9 If you make the Lord your refuge,

if you make the Most High your shelter,

10 no evil will conquer you;

no plague will come near your home.

11 For he will order his angels

to protect you wherever you go.

12 They will hold you up with their hands

so you won’t even hurt your foot on a stone.

13 You will trample upon lions and cobras;

you will crush fierce lions and serpents under your feet!

14 The Lord says, “I will rescue those who love me.

I will protect those who trust in my name.

15 When they call on me, I will answer;

I will be with them in trouble.

I will rescue and honor them.

16 I will reward them with a long life

and give them my salvation.”
