Psalms: Nourishment for the Soul (part fifteen)
The author of Psalm 91 seemed to draw from personal experience when he described the reality of daily dangers. But more importantly, he knew the God who offered him protection and safety from life’s threats. His God was “Most High” and “Almighty,” with the tenderness of a bird mothering her young combined with the strength of a military fortress that keeps the enemies out. His God’s protection was just as impenetrable at night as it was in the light of day. And when his God chose to permit trouble in his life, He comforted the psalmist with His very presence by remaining with him. Does this sound like your God?
