Psalms 91: “The Lord is My Refuge and My Fortress”

Psalms 91: "The Lord is My Refuge and My Fortress" - Holy BibleFor this to apply to you, you must be a believer not a pretender. God is a heart knower (Acts 1:24), you cannot lie to Him or only go half way. Either you believe in Him fully or you do not. The three that were cast into the fiery furnace believed in Him absolutely. The Plagues of Egypt had no power over the Israelites even though they were in the midst of Egypt. Why? Because of their belief, these plagues were forced to Passover them.

Psalms 91:1-16
1 “He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.

2 I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.

3 Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.

4 He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.

5 Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;

6 Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.

7 A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.

8 Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.

9 Because thou hast made the Lord, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation;

10 There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.

11 For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.

12 They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.

13 Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet.

14 Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.

15 He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.

16 With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.” – God’s Word, The Bible

  1. I couldn’t have put it better. Well said!

  2. Child of the Living God

    or Psalm 137 is a good one for the enemies of God.
    137 By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down, yea, we wept, when we remembered Zion.

    2 We hanged our harps upon the willows in the midst thereof.

    3 For there they that carried us away captive required of us a song; and they that wasted us required of us mirth, saying, Sing us one of the songs of Zion.

    4 How shall we sing the Lord’s song in a strange land?

    5 If I forget thee, O Jerusalem, let my right hand forget her cunning.

    6 If I do not remember thee, let my tongue cleave to the roof of my mouth; if I prefer not Jerusalem above my chief joy.

    7 Remember, O Lord, the children of Edom in the day of Jerusalem; who said, Rase it, rase it, even to the foundation thereof.

    8 O daughter of Babylon, who art to be destroyed; happy shall he be, that rewardeth thee as thou hast served us.

    9 Happy shall he be, that taketh and dasheth thy little ones against the stones.

  3. psalm 74 for the enemies of God.

    74 O God, why hast thou cast us off for ever? why doth thine anger smoke against the sheep of thy pasture?

    2 Remember thy congregation, which thou hast purchased of old; the rod of thine inheritance, which thou hast redeemed; this mount Zion, wherein thou hast dwelt.

    3 Lift up thy feet unto the perpetual desolations; even all that the enemy hath done wickedly in the sanctuary.

    4 Thine enemies roar in the midst of thy congregations; they set up their ensigns for signs.

    5 A man was famous according as he had lifted up axes upon the thick trees.

    6 But now they break down the carved work thereof at once with axes and hammers.

    7 They have cast fire into thy sanctuary, they have defiled by casting down the dwelling place of thy name to the ground.

    8 They said in their hearts, Let us destroy them together: they have burned up all the synagogues of God in the land.

    9 We see not our signs: there is no more any prophet: neither is there among us any that knoweth how long.

    10 O God, how long shall the adversary reproach? shall the enemy blaspheme thy name for ever?

    11 Why withdrawest thou thy hand, even thy right hand? pluck it out of thy bosom.

    12 For God is my King of old, working salvation in the midst of the earth.

    13 Thou didst divide the sea by thy strength: thou brakest the heads of the dragons in the waters.

    14 Thou brakest the heads of leviathan in pieces, and gavest him to be meat to the people inhabiting the wilderness.

    15 Thou didst cleave the fountain and the flood: thou driedst up mighty rivers.

    16 The day is thine, the night also is thine: thou hast prepared the light and the sun.

    17 Thou hast set all the borders of the earth: thou hast made summer and winter.

    18 Remember this, that the enemy hath reproached, O Lord, and that the foolish people have blasphemed thy name.

    19 O deliver not the soul of thy turtledove unto the multitude of the wicked: forget not the congregation of thy poor for ever.

    20 Have respect unto the covenant: for the dark places of the earth are full of the habitations of cruelty.

    21 O let not the oppressed return ashamed: let the poor and needy praise thy name.

    22 Arise, O God, plead thine own cause: remember how the foolish man reproacheth thee daily.

    23 Forget not the voice of thine enemies: the tumult of those that rise up against thee increaseth continually.

  4. Good Psalm, God loves his children. Now post one that tells everyone how God feels about the people who hate Him. So they will believe and understand why God hates them in return. I am so tired of the fake Jews and brainwashed biblically illiterate Christians telling everyone Christians are supposed to love everyone no matter what. God does not do that, and God never said for us to do that. God said do not hate without cause, sometimes you have a reason to hate. If God hates you then you can bet He has a good reason for it. Likewise, if I hate you then you can bet I also have a good reason for it. Powder puff Christians are worthless to God; they stand for nothing, especially not for God. God needs warriors who will fight for Him. Stand up and prepare yourself for battle. Put on the armor of God, lay that mantle over your entire self, we have the victory, but if you do not fight for God you will not be among the victorious. You will not join that group by watching others do it.

  5. Surely, you need more than belief?

    James 2:19 Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.

    Paul M.

    • Paul, I hope you are doing well.

      We always need to read more than one verse. Let us do that.

      Jas 2:17
      Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.

      Jas 2:18
      Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works.

      Jas 2:19
      Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.

      Jas 2:20
      But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?

      Faith will get us to heaven alright, but we will be poorly dressed if we have no righteous works.

      Rev 22:12
      And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.

      This does not mean we all need to be preachers and teachers. Some are meant to teach and some are not. We all have our own way of sharing the Word of God and we need to make sure we do that and always lead by example. Taking care of your family and sharing the Word with them would be one example of good works.

      If we read Matthew 25:14-30 we see a parable Christ gave us. The servant that was given 5 talents turned it into 5 more while his lord was away. The servant who was given 2 talents likewise doubled his as well. The servant who was given one hid it in the earth. We do not hid what the Lord gives us. We do not hid our candle under a bushel.

      Rather, we let it shine forth so all can see!

    • So then we all agree. God expects His people to do His will. The operative word there is DO.

  6. Comforting reminder. You are right though, it is not meant for everyone. King David wrote this and he did much to please God. I have a question for everyone who reads this, What have you done for God lately? You can start by understanding what He wrote to you.
