Psalm 91

Take time this Sabbath to meditate on today’s passage.

Those who live in the shelter of the Most High
   will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
This I declare about the LORD:
He alone is my refuge, my place of safety;
   he is my God, and I trust him.
[. . .] If you make the LORD your refuge,
   if you make the Most High your shelter,
no evil will conquer you;
   no plague will come near your home.
For he will order his angels
   to protect you wherever you go.
They will hold you up with their hands
   so you won’t even hurt your foot on a stone.
You will trample upon lions and cobras;
   you will crush fierce lions and serpents under your feet!
The LORD says, “I will rescue those who love me.
   I will protect those who trust in my name.
When they call on me, I will answer;
   I will be with them in trouble.
   I will rescue and honor them.
I will reward them with a long life
   and give them my salvation.” (Psalm 91:1–2, 9–16 NLT)
