My Protection

God is my refuge, my place of safety.

Psalm 91

I live under the protection of God Most High and stay in the shadow of God All-Powerful. I will say to the Lord, “You are my fortress, my place of safety; You are my God, and I trust You.” The Lord will keep me safe from secret traps and deadly diseases.

He will spread His wings over me and keep me secure. His faithfulness is like a shield or a city wall. I won’t need to worry about dangers at night or arrows, during the day. And I won’t fear diseases that strike in the dark or sudden disaster at noon.

I will not be harmed, though thousands fall all around me. And with my own eyes I will see the punishment of the wicked. The Lord Most High is my fortress. I run to Him for safety, and no terrible disasters will strike me or my home.

My God will command His angels to protect me wherever I go. They will carry me in their arms, and I won’t hurt my feet on the stones. I will overpower the strongest lions and the most deadly snakes.

The Lord says to me, “If I love Him and truly know who He is, He will rescue me and keep me safe. When I am in trouble, call out to Him. He will answer and be there to protect and honor me. I will live a long life and see His saving power.”
