Psalms 91 is an extremely powerful passage that serves as protection during hard times or as a prayer for someone who has taken shelter in the Lord. To me Psalms 91 is a safe place. It says, “eh will cover with his feathers; you will take refuge under his wings. His faithfulness will be a protective shield. ” Whenever I find myself down or hear about someone not doing so well, I refer to this passage. During my short time at Taylor I have experienced some recent lows when I hurt my knee.
I was told that I loud possibly miss the upcoming season. When I heard this news I remembered something my grandmother always told me, “God doesn’t make any mistakes and we are put in certain obstacles for a reason. ” Throughout this difficult time Psalms 91 has always been in my mind. Whenever I find myself struggling, I refer back to it and all my worries go away. Psalms 91 has taught me to put my trust in God. In verse ten it says, “No harm will come to you; no plague will come near your tent. Trusting God and his plan has not only affirmed his presence in my life, but it has also allowed me to understand my suffering. I have learned to embrace it because of the trust I have in God. How much are we willing to accept these promises of deliverance and protection, or long life (Psalm 91 :16)? For example, the Apostle Paul gives us some food for thought in relation to this question: “Who will separate us from the love of Christ? Will hardship, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
No, in all Hess things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us” (Romans 8:35, 37). In order to implement this passage on a daily basis I can do several things. One thing I can do is write or print off the passage and place it in my room on the wall where I will see it everyday and in my locker in the field house also. I also can pray more, which I will be happier during my struggles and weakness. Last but not least I talk about what God has done for me to other people to give them hope and faith through their struggles and weaknesses.
