Psalm 91 & 92: God Is My Refuge
Verse of the Day: (91:2) I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.
1. God Is My Refuge (91:1-16)
He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. (91:1)
God assured Israel as well as believer today that He is our Refuge, Secret Place and Almighty, and He shall protect and cover us, like the mother hen to her chicks, with His strong feathers, and place us under His mighty wings amid Satan’s fiery darts and wicked offences. Indeed, let us put on the God’s feathers and wings, His whole armour of helmet of salvation, breastplate of righteousness, belt of truth, shoes of the gospel of peace, shield of faith, sword of the Spirit, and fervent prayers, as we stand firmly, and wrestle against the wicked principalities and evil powers of Satan and his demons, and we shall prevail against them. (Ephesians 6:10-19) Let us hide and seek refuge in Jesus Christ, the Author of our faith and the Anchor of our souls who is sure and steadfast and shall help us through our life journey from this tough earth to glorious heaven. (Hebrews 6:17-20)
2. God Is My Righteousness (92:1-12)
The righteous shall flourish like the palm tree: he shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon. (92:12)
God commanded Israel and all who believe in Him to sing praises to Him for His lovingkindness in the morning, and for His faithfulness in the night, as without Him, we are eternally condemned in fiery hell, because of our sin nature since the fall of Adam and Eve. (Genesis 3) Indeed, let us open our eyes each morning thanking God for His lovingkindness toward us in the day, and close our eyes in the night thanking Him for His faithfulness in preserving our life throughout the day. Let us truly trust and thank God for His promise that He shall bless and flourish us like the beautiful palm tree amid the mud of sins, and keep and grow us like the strong cedar in Lebanon amid sinking sand of wickedness. God knows the righteous will remain righteous in Him to the end, and those who reject Him will continue to reject Him, and be cursed at the end. (Revelation 22:6-21)
3. God Is My Rock (92:13-15)
To shew that the LORD is upright: he is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in him. (92:15)
Amid the shifting sand of Satan’s relentless and ruthless attacks, let us trust our God, our Rock, who shall fight for us and prevail against Satan and the gates of hell. Our victory is sure and steadfast as God has already defeated Satan, and has promised all who believe in Him that one day, we shall be with Him in His heavenly kingdom. (Matthew 16:16-19)
Prayer of the Day:
Dearest God, thank You that You are my Refuge and Rock in time of our life storm.
