I am excited about returning to this wonderful chapter in God’s Word. It is one of the most moving dynamic chapters in all of the Bible.
It talks about God’s love for us in the form of ASSURANCE, SECURITY AND GOD’S PROTECTION. As I mentioned before I don’t know how many times I have read this chapter in my life but I always sense the Holy Spirit in a powerful, loving way as I read it and meditate upon the words.
Vs. 11 FOR HE SHALL GIVE HIS ANGELS CHARGE OVER THEE, TO KEEP THEE IN ALL THY WAYS.
One great general of God said that as the Lord spoke to him one time the Lord said just because you are an adult does not mean that the guardian, ministering angels are not with you. That statement from the Lord struck a note in my heart. This statement I believe was inspired by Matthew 18:10 and Hebrews 1:13-14 which states “Are they not all ministering spirits, sent for to minister (not to them but FOR) FOR them who shall be heirs of salvation.” (That statement ought to give you comfort this morning, this afternoon this evening or whenever you are reading this, BE BLESSED by the Word of God).
Vs. 12 THEY SHALL BEAR THEE UP IN THEIR HANDS, LEST THOU DASH THY FOOT AGAINST A STONE.”
This verse should bring back memories to you of when Jesus was tempted in the wilderness and satan took this verse out of context and quoted it back to the Lord just like satan misquoted what God told Adam and Eve not to do in the Garden of Eden, satan will warp anything. (Matthew 4:1-11& Genesis 3:1 -24).
But let’s bring this to a positive light. There is no doubt according to God’s Word that angels are working on our behalf as the Bible stated in Hebrews 1:13-14. They are assigned to us. We don’t worship or pray to angels but they are sent by our Precious Lord to HELP us and PROTECT us.
Vs. 13 THOU SHALT TREAD UPON THE LION AND THE ADDER: THE YOUNG LION AND THE DRAGON SHALT THOU TRAMPLE UNDER FEET.
The fact that we are treading upon the lion and the adder (snake) shows that we are victorious over our enemy satan in all of his forms. It shows we have conquered satan in all of his ways to attack us and our foot on his head is a sign that through Jesus Christ we are the conqueror and we are victorious.
When Jesus gave the Great Commission to all of us that are Christians He said this: LUKE 10:19 “BEHOLD, I GIVE UNTO YOU POWER TO TREAD ON SERPENTS AND SCORPIONS, AND OVER ALL THE POWER OF THE ENEMY; AND NOTHING SHALL BY ANY MEANS HURT YOU.” This verse is what the Lord is talking about in vs. 13 so exercise your God given right and put your foot on satan’s head by quoting the Word of God to satan and don’t tip toe through the tulips about it either, do it with authority. USE THE WORD OF GOD AGAINST THE DEVIL. FIND THE SCRIPTURE THAT PERTAINS TO WHAT YOU ARE GOING THROUGH AND QUOTE IT TO THE DEVIL AND KEEP QUOTING IT TO HIM, HE WILL FLEE. (JAMES 4:7).
Vs. 14 BECAUSE HE HATH SET HIS LOVE UPON ME; THEREFORE WILL I DELIVER HIM; I WILL SET HIM ON HIGH, BECAUSE HE HATH KNOW MY NAME.
I believe that the Lord is telling those who submit to Him and love Him that the reason why He is doing all of these things He has mentioned is that He loves us with a love that is beyond our comprehension. Here the Lord states He will do whatever it takes in your life to deliver you and set you up in heavenly places with Christ Jesus and all things are beneath your feet.
Isaiah 41:10 “Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed for I am your God: I will strengthen thee: yea I will help thee; yea I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.”
Vs. 15 HE SHALL CALL UPON ME, AND I WILL ANSWER HIM: I WILL BE WITH HIM IN TROUBLE, I WILL DELIVER HIM, AND HONOR HIM.
The Lord promises you that when you call upon Him that He WILL answer you. We have such a personal all caring Lord and Savior that knows the number of hairs on our head and HE ABSOLUTELY PROMISES TO ANSWER WHEN WE CALL UPON HIM. I know that has to bring you peace and comfort. Jeremiah 33:3 “Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.”
He promises to be with us in trouble. Some might be willing to do that to some degree but the Lord will not only be with you in trouble but has the ability and power above anyone or anything to DELIVER YOU and on top of all that He will honor you. Such a great promise from our GREAT ALMIGHTY GOD.
Vs. 16 WITH LONG LIFE WILL I SATISFY HIM, AND SHOW HIM MY SALVATION.
As if all the the previous 15 verses were not enough He gives us another great promise of a long life that really satisfies us and shows us His salvation.
Only our God and our Lord can promise us a long satisfying life, there is no one else on earth that can make that promise and no matter how rich a person is in money it cannot be bought. God’s promises and blessings are priceless. That’s why as we serve the Lord we can believe for a long healthy satisfying life in every aspect of our life. Not just hanging on to life but full of joy and productive for the Lord.
Proverbs 10:22 “The blessing of the Lord, it maketh rich, and He addeth no sorrow with it.”
I don’t know about you but I have been blessed just allowing the Holy Spirit to flow through me as I have presented these 3 sessions of Psalm 91 to you, hopefully you have too.
