“Because he has loved Me, therefore I will deliver him;
I will set him securely on high, because he has known My name.
“He will call upon Me, and I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble;
I will rescue him and honor him.
“With a long life I will satisfy him
And let him see My salvation.” Psalm 91: 14-16 NASB
Look at all the good stuff we’ve been given simply because we love Him. Reading this entire Psalm just makes me feel loved and safe in every situation I face. Whether it’s something happening at work, in my health or finances, this Psalm applies.
Making the Lord my refuge isn’t something I do when I’m in trouble. I make Him my refuge always. I go to Him in the good times and the bad. I love sitting with Him and talking with Him everyday simply because He’s the best friend and confidant. If I need wisdom, BAM, I’ve got it. If I need a fresh perspective on something troubling, BAM, He brings it.
Simply come to Him. Turn this Psalm into a prayer today. Let it minister to you and allow Him to be everything He wants to be to you. Whatever you face, He is in you to face it with you. Wherever you go, He goes with you. In fact He goes BEFORE you to make your crooked paths straight ones. Why? Just because!
Father, thanks for loving me! I love You too! You are my deliverer. Just today You delivered me from an ‘almost’ accident. Thank You for delivering me from what I see and what I don’t see. You’ve set me in a secure place where no evil can touch me. Thanks for revealing all aspects of Your name to me; provider, protecter, deliverer, redeemer just to name a few. When I call on You, You always answer me. As I sit at Your feet just loving on You, or if I’m going about my day. You’re with me in trouble and quickly rescue me. You give me excellent health, I’m not even sick when it’s flu season. You’ve hedged me in on all sides because I worship Your name. You bring me total satisfaction in every area of my life and You show me Your salvation. It’s in Jesus’ name I pray this, Amen.
