My Refuge and My Fortress, My God

My refuge and my fortress: My God

Psalms 91 
I love this Psalm because it reminds me that God is my shelter in the times of a storm. I can rest beneath His wings until the storm has passed. 
Verses 1-4  
It's talking about trusting in the Lord and He will be there, watching over you. Trust Him with all your heart.  Your enemies will try to bring you down with their actions and their words. But, God is protecting us as we trust and believe in Him. 
Verses 5-8 
It's talking about that we don't have anything to be afraid of because we serve a mighty God.  God protects us from the evil day in and day out.  Evil will get its own reward on earth, not like we do as believers in Heaven. 
Verses 9-13 
It's talking about putting God first in our lives.  With God first we have protection and don't have to give evil any authority in our lives. We have the authority to call upon angels to help us. We have authority over the enemy of our souls. 
Verses 14-16 
 I especially like these verses because they tell me that whatever trails and tribulations I am going through- I am not alone.  God is right there with me.  He answers me whenever I cry out to Him. He is there through the highs and the lows- He is always there. 
I can honestly say that the Lord,  "He is my refuge and my fortress;  My God, in Him I will trust." 
Thank you for reading this and may God bless you,
