Psalm 91 : Safety of Abiding in the Presence of God

 

 
He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High
Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my 
fortress;
My God, in Him I will trust.”

Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler
And from the perilous pestilence.
He shall cover you with His feathers,
And under His wings you shall take refuge;
His truth shall be your shield and buckler.
You shall not be afraid of the terror by night,
Nor of the arrow that flies by day,
Nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness,
Nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday.

A thousand may fall at your side,
And ten thousand at your right hand;
But it shall not come near you.
Only with your eyes shall you look,
And see the reward of the wicked.

Because you have made the Lord, who is my refuge,
Even the Most High, your dwelling place,
No evil shall befall you,
Nor shall any plague come near your dwelling;
For He shall give His angels charge over you,
To keep you in all your ways.
In their hands they shall bear you up,
Lest you dash your foot against a stone.
You shall tread upon the lion and the cobra,
The young lion and the serpent you shall trample underfoot.

“Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him;
I will set him on high, because he has known My name.
He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble;
I will deliver him and honour him.
With long life I will satisfy him,
And show him My salvation.” (Psalm 91:1-16).

In this very uncertain world sometimes we ask the question, “Can I be so secured in the Lord? If sicknesses spread and plague, pestilence all over, is the Lord able to keep me?” And even as Christians sometimes we doubt, if we are not anchored in God’s word. So, today I’m going to explain Psalm 91 and make some paraphrase to make it clear to you.

Verse 1 : He who dwells in the secret place (or secret shelter) of the Most High
will abide and rest under the shadow of the Almighty.

It’s a very lovely picture, very assuring picture of the protection of God. How do you find yourself in that place? It’s not a physical place and can never be a physical place that you can run to. I want to purpose to you, every time you get a hold of God’s word, you believe and you pray accordingly. For instance if you are fearful of some kind of disease, fearful of some unknown danger that coming upon your life, you feel insecure, then you cling on to this verse, “Lord, I dwell in the secret place of the Most High, I believe in your word, and because I dwell in the secret place of the Most High, I will rest and abide under the shadow of the Almighty.” And as you do that you are already in the secret place of the Most High. You can be walking along the road and you are claiming this promise, where are you? Well, you are still on the road but in effect you are in the secret place or secret shelter of the Most High. Some of you feel some kind of danger upon your life, some of you are afraid of dying young, some of you are afraid of sicknesses come knocking at your door, yes I agree to that but if you say, “I’m going to abide in the secret place of the Most High, I take it as my own right now!” Where are you now? You are in the secret place of the Most High right now! You are dwelling in the very presence of God!

Verse 2: I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust.”

The picture becomes more assuring now. When you stay in the secret place of the Most High, it is a refuge, a place where you can run to but you don’t physically run to that place. When you pray and connect with Jesus, He is your refuge, and fortress, you are being fortified by solid protection. And who is He? Your God in whom you trust.

Verse 3: Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler (or the trapper- the one who hunts, sets a snare) and from the perilous pestilence.

The Bible says, “Surely or certainly” He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the perilous pestilence. Whether it’s a sickness or a plague that troubles many people or some kind of a danger, God your refuge will help you and deliver you.

Verse 4: He shall cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler.

He shall cover you with His feathers, now the picture gets cosier and you are more assured. And under His wings you shall take refuge (or shall you trust and find refuge). His truth or His faithfulness or His faithful promises – i.e. the word of God – shall be your shield and buckler (or armour or rampart). You are totally protected.

Verse 5, 6: You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, nor of the arrow that flies by day,  nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness, nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday.

At anytime of the day and night, where there’s a danger, you are not afraid whether of the terror by night, nor of the plague that stalks in darkness nor of the calamity that destroys at noon time. They may destroy thousands but I believe I won’t be destroyed. This is the real picture. Can you imagine even in the midst of destruction, the calamity that destroys at noon time, it will not affect you.

Verse 7: A thousand may fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand; but it shall not come near you.

That’s the word of God! But how do you come to that level of faith? When you read and meditate the word of God over and over and over and over again! There are five things we got to do with God’s words. Firstly, read God’s word as His love letter to you. Secondly, begin to study the word. Read a few versions of the Bibles until you come to some kind of a conclusion. Thirdly, meditate on God’s word. Repeat a verse again and again. Fourthly, internalize the word until it becomes part of your being. Lastly, live God’s word out, believe and apply it.

Verse 8: Only with your eyes shall you look, and see the reward of the wicked.

Some people say it’s hard to be a Christian. When you have an enemy you are not suppose to hate them. And that’s true, we are not encouraged to hate people but encouraged to pray, “Lord, change them, be merciful to them.”  But if they are recalcitrant and they stubbornly come against you, with your own eyes you will see the punishment of the wicked. And that is true. The Lord will vindicate you.

Verse 9, 10, 11: Because you have made the Lord, who is my refuge, even the Most High, your dwelling place, no evil shall befall you, nor shall any plague come near your dwelling; For He shall give His angels charge over you, to keep you in all your ways.

Because you have made the Lord your refuge and the Most High your dwelling place, no evil will befall you, nor any plague comes near your home (or tent because in those days most people live in tents). For He gives His angels a special charge over your life. What is that for? To keep you wherever you go, you are not to be afraid. Because the angels receive a special assignment from God about you and they are watching over you to keep you wherever you go.

Verse 12: In their hands they shall bear you up, lest you dash your foot against a stone.

You may not see the angels protecting you but when you are full of the promises of God, when you move in faith, your angels are holding you up. Because they have a special assignment over your life to keep you in all your ways or wherever you go. And they are bearing you up in their arms, lest even one foot dashes against a stone. Remember during Christ’s temptation, the devil quoted this verse out of context. The devil said, “If you are the Son of God, go to the top of this temple, jump down. Don’t you know that it is written in the word of God that the angels will bear you up, lest even of one of Your foot dashes against a stone? But that’s totally out of context, you are not suppose to temp God. But this verse is true! In your everyday walk with Jesus, when your heart is full of the promises of God, the angels are there to bear you up!

Verse 13: You shall tread upon the lion and the cobra, the young lion and the serpent you shall trample underfoot.

All these creatures are representing the devil and demons. You shall trample over them. Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you (Luke 10:19).

Verse 14: “Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him; I will set him on high, because he has known My name.

Because he has anchored his love in Me, I will deliver him. I will set him securely on high, because he knows My name. When Jesus says “I will set you securely on high”, what is that place on high? It’s the same as the secret place of the Most High. In the sense you are high up there, beyond the reach of the enemy. Why? Because you are with the Most High, His feathers cover you, under His wings you will trust and you will find refuge. He sets you securely on high, why? Because he knows My name. What does it mean, he knows My name? He has a personal knowledge of My grace, My love and My mercy. He trusts and relies on Me, knowing that I will never forsake him, no, never! When the soul comes to a point whereby he just know, the Lord will not forsake me! He just completely trust in Him, this person knows the Lord’s Name. All that is represented in that Name, Jesus – He’s The Saviour, The Healer, The Deliverer, The Messiah. You know His name, you trust Him with all of your heart.

Verse 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.

Are you in trouble today? If you are, just trust Him, call upon Him, He’s right there in the midst of your trouble. The trouble is not resolved yet, but He is there. He’s there with you, guiding your mental practices, guiding your heart, clearing the pathway. And you can see some signs of He is being with you and clearing the way because when the events unfold, whatever trouble you are going through, when the events unfold, you know He is there, there are signs He’s has been working it all out. Call upon Him, He will be with you in your trouble.

I will deliver him and honour him. Not only He delivers you, but with the deliverance He brings you honour. Have you been falsely accused? Well, trust God! He will not only deliver you, He will vindicate you, bring justice for you and He will bring honour to you. Just trust Him, surrender to Him!

Verse 16: With long life I will satisfy him, and show him My salvation.”

He is able to see you through. Not just for a short period of time but over the long haul. As you live long, He’s always there with you in every situation. …and show him My salvation. The word “salvation” or “sozo” in its original Hebrew means not just getting saved and go to heaven, it means God will bring you deliverance, not just your soul but for your total man. If you need healing for your mind, He’s there to bring healing for your mind. If you need healing for your physical body, He brings you the physical healing and deliverance. In other words, I will show you My total deliverance for the total man, and I will keep you and give you long life until you are satisfied.

Now, how do we abide in the secret place of the Most high? Jesus Himself in John 15:7 says, If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you….that’s how you abide in the secret shelter of the Most High and rest under the  shadow of the Almighty, if you abide in Me and My words abide in you. The test is:  Is the word of God abiding in your heart? When you face situation, what is your first reaction? Do you go to the word of God and say, “Fear not, the Lord is with me,” or do you say “I’m going to whack him real good!” If it is so, then the word of God is never in your heart. It may be in your head. Do you know that from your head to your heart is just about a foot long or so but it’s a long way, isn’t it? In terms of meditating on the Word, in terms of practising the Word until it becomes a part of you. It’s a long way. Many people can quote the Bible upside down, but where is it from? If the Word is from your head, every time you share with friends, it will be the head reaching the head. But if it is from the heart, it will be the heart reaching the heart. It’s a big difference.

So, Jesus here says, If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desireThis is about answered prayer. …And it shall be done for youand that’s another benefit, isn’t it? When you dwell in the secret place of the Most High with your heart full of the word of God, Jesus said, “Ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you.”

All of us want to be closer to God, don’t we? But how are we going to be closer to God if we don’t spend time reading His words? It’s just not possible. Now, after reading a message like this, full of promises, what are you going to do with the word of God? Is it more worthwhile to turn to your Bible than to switch the remote control to your TV? You decide.

        Hanny I appreciate your input. Will you please let me know by email what you think.(kel.wade5@gmail.com)  I had a dark shadow in my room one night while laying in my bed. It felt like the grim ripper, the feeling of death came all over me. I started shaking with tears. I prayed to the Lord for protection. I soon heard A voice to read psalms 91 in my head. Scared of the dark shadow, I jumped up quickly turn on my light & grab my bible and ran to quickly read. I felt this was a warning from God to come. I love the book of Psalms, beautiful. This disturbing  situation I take seriously. For I went to my Daugthers room and the same dark shadow had happened to her. She felt the same.God is preparing us for something much bigger to come. In times of destruction we will know to call on our Lord. He will protect us because we called upon his name and trust in him. We will see thousands die by our feet. I feel this is a future warning psalms 91.~ A angel will protect us from the wicked.~If pre-say Obama takes over 3rd term 16' & elections never happen dued to martial law/ war, we may face great tribulations. Let's all pray he doesn't do by the 22nd amendment.Bless you and may we hold on to the stead fast love of Jesus Christ.We will have no fear on what ever may come.  May we be blessed everyday, Praise Jesus!! Peace & Love on this Earth. Trusting the Lord. 🙏🏽 

  2. ROSEMARY says:

    This is one of my best scriptures in the bible. Thank you. I am blessed

  3. margaret curtis says:

    I was especially drawn to the phrase regarding from my head to my heart.  I know it's in my head but I'm not sure it's in my heart and I want it to be.  I do try to read my bible every day, but sometimes I have to make myself do it and I don't know why.  If it was truly in my heart I should want to do it; I should have a desire to do it.  I keep thinking that if I continue to read the bible eventually this will happen, but it hasn't yet.  I want to have that burning desire to go to church and to read the word.  Please pray for me.

     

    • Paula Hanny says:

      Hi Margaret,

      As it is your heart’s desire to go to church and read His Word every day, I believe with all my heart that God will grant you accordingly. For it is His heart’s desire for you to get connected with Him by reading His Word. My prayer is that you will have a sweet relationship with God as you keep partaking of His Word. Amen!

      God bless you,

      Hanny

  4. Maurice says:

    That was awesome, I will incorporate parts of it in my daily prayer.

  5. AJ says:

    There is an impending prophecy in our country – Philipines, today. 75% have already hapenned which includes the terrible typhoon Yolanda just lately which devastated the Visayan regions of the country. The 25% of the prophecy is the curse of plague, a disease that will decay the flesh, from the skin to the bones, and the prophet said that the disease will begin in our province – Pangasinan that will eventually spread to Cebu and other parts of the country and the world. I admit to be somehow troubled by the prophecy, so I turned to God's word for peace and right now Im holding on to His word, the Psalm 91.  Thank you also sir, for this encouraging elaboration of the word. Please pray for our country Philippines and for our province Pangasinan   I know that my God is ever faithful to His word and He cannot deny Himself, thus He shall never fail those whose only trust is Him, lest He would be unreliable – but as for me I trust Him completely.

    • Paula Hanny says:

      Hi AJ,

      The best way that you have done is to turn to God’s Word in whatever situation you may face. We might not fully understand for what has happened in your country, but if we keep trusting God and His promise – never will He leave us nor forsake us – He will see us through even in our troubled times, and in the end everything will be alright.

      Keep trusting Him!

      Hanny

      God bless you Maurice!

    Your explaination is very clear. A friend told me to read it but when I did it didn't make complete sence to be but now it does.  Many thanks.

  11. Missy says:

    Paula,
    I was reading a story in a “Womens
    daily Bible” the writer suggested
    reading Psalm 91 . I did, but until
    your explanation I had not had
    the full meaning. I thank you so
    very much, I read this Psalm
    every morning. I also attend a
    Bible study group. I find what
    is missing is the true meaning
    in most of our studies, it seems
    to me this is one reson many
    people do not read the Bible.
    Many such Psalms , and stories
    should be explored or the subject
    becomes meaningless for some.

    Many thanks!

    • Paula Hanny says:

      Hi Missy,

      Thanks for your feedback. As you keep reading and studying the Bible that is God’s Word, with such hunger to know Him more, I believe that Holy Spirit Himself will speak to you and give you the enlightenment.

      God bless you,

      Hanny Paula

    May God continue to bless you and keep you. Thank you for sharing His word, and braking it down so that so many of us that don’t can really understand. I’ve been wanting to share His word but not really knowing how but recently started sharing my testimony. I was diagnosed with stage 2 breast cancer in October 2011. I trusted God throughout the process surgery chemo and radiation and continue to trust Him. I have a doctors appointment today for some recent testing on a lump that I had removed and although I must admit some concerns creep in the head I still trust Him. I was given this scripture to read (psalms 91:1-2). I read the chapter and wanted it broke down and that’s when I came across your article and feel in love with it. I am letting it minister to me but more than that I have decided I want to share it with others. Never had the courage to do this before but would be honored if I could reference your article when I do share. Thank you this has been a blessing to me and I thank God for using you.

  42. Ebony says:

    Thank you so much for sharing the wisdom that the Holy Spirit gives to bless others! It was very refreshing! My children and I used to read Psalm 91: 1-16 faithfully and walk in it daily. I strayed away from reading the Word like I SHOULD, for a while until recently, and I realize that when I stood on God’s Word for my family’s lives, everything was much more peaceful & joy overtook my heart, whatever the circumstances. That yearning for Him has always been there, but has been steadily increasing now even more! I will always stay close to Him, and I know He will stay close to me. God always has a way of drawing us back to Him, and I am thankful for the revelation & confirmation He gives us when we are hungry for Him in our lives. Thank you again, blessed wonderful servant of God!! To God be all the glory!!

    Thank you so much. I've been a believer since I was 9. Life has dealt me may storms and I find refuge in the Lord. At 59 I feel so alone sometimes. Psalms 34 has always been my favorite as I am a true worshiper but now this is added to my favorites list.

  47. Natasha says:

    This scripture stays on my mind and heart constantly, it feels like people have been passing away all around me and it's so scary to me. I just continue to remind myself that I dwell in the secret place of the most high and that my husband and I and all that believe will be covered. I lost a child in 09 and ever since then the fears creep in from time to time. Thank you for this excellent explanation of the Psalms. I am uplifted.
