Today's reading: Psalm 91:1-16
Psalm 91 is such a beautiful description of God's provision and protection. I was drawn to verses 3-6 today.
"3 For he will deliver you from the snare of the fowler
and from the deadly pestilence.
4 He will cover you with his pinions,
and under his wings you will find refuge;
his faithfulness is a shield and buckler.
5 You will not fear the terror of the night,
nor the arrow that flies by day,
6 nor the pestilence that stalks in darkness,
nor the destruction that wastes at noonday."
So often when we encounter difficulty, when we've been slugging through a painful situation, when we receive unexpected bad news--fear presses in and consumes us. What a comfort to know that God will deliver and cover us. And because God is our refuge, we are secure and can stand strong as the inevitable storms of life rage around us.
What comfort do you draw from this psalm? Was there a particular verse that moved your heart, and why? When and how has God calmed your fear in a time of difficulty? Tami
