Today’s selection was suggested by a visitor. She shared the following:
Psalm 91 is my favorite. God recently led me to memorize it, verse by verse. I say it daily, and it never fails to comfort me. I stand on the last 3 verses in particular, as a promise of my son’s salvation and breaking the stronghold of his 10-year drug addiction.
Thanks for sharing this! I suggest we ALL memorize every word (or at least the last three verses).
Whoever dwells in the shelter
of the Most High
will rest in the shadow
of the Almighty.
I will say of the Lord,
“He is my refuge
and my fortress,
my God, in whom I trust.”
Surely he will save you
from the fowler’s snare
and from the deadly pestilence.
He will cover you with his feathers,
and under his wings
you will find refuge;
his faithfulness will be
your shield and rampart.
You will not fear the terror of night,
nor the arrow that flies by day,
nor the pestilence
that stalks in the darkness,
nor the plague
that destroys at midday.
A thousand may fall at your side,
ten thousand at your right hand,
but it will not come near you.
You will only observe with your eyes
and see the punishment of the wicked.
If you say, “The Lord is my refuge,”
and you make the Most High
no harm will overtake you,
no disaster will come near your tent.
For he will command his
angels concerning you
to guard you in all your ways;
they will lift you up in their hands,
so that you will not strike
your foot against a stone.
You will tread on the lion
and the cobra;
you will trample the great lion
and the serpent.
“Because he loves me,” says the Lord,
“I will rescue him;
I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.
He will call on me, and I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble,
I will deliver him and honor him.
With long life I will satisfy him
and show him my salvation.”
Thanks again for suggesting this one, Deb. Praying for you and your son right now!
