This Is Our God! Psalms 91

Had the privilege to be led by one of the most anointed worship leader in our Sunday service yesterday, Darlene Zschech of Hillsong Australia. Didn’t know she has got her own website, see here.

She shared something during the worship that deeply resonated within my spirit, and I sure this will bless you very much too. In Psalms 91, David wrote the psalms that praise God of His protection and covering of those who love Him; the safety of those who have God for their refuge.

He that by faith chooses God for his protector shall find all in him that he needs or can desire. And those who have found the comfort of making the Lord their refuge, cannot but desire that others may do so. The spiritual life is protected by Divine grace from the temptations of Satan, which are as the snares of the fowler, and from the contagion of sin, which is a noisome pestilence. Great security is promised to believers in the midst of danger. Wisdom shall keep them from being afraid without cause, and faith shall keep them from being unduly afraid.

But from verse 14 onwards, the Lord came, took over and spoke directly.

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.”

Read that again, slowly.

The Lord came and stakes Himself directly on these promises. He didn’t have to do that. He could have left David to finish the psalms. But He came personally and stakes all of Himself onto these promises; the promises to all His loved ones. He came personally for you and me.

What a beautiful loving God. This is our God!

    this passage is great. Awesome.
    the bible clearly tells us that one way of experiencing God’s victory is to step into the courts of praising and worshipping our God.

    Matthew 21:9 (New Living Translation)
    vs. 9 Jesus was in the center of the procession, and the people all around him were shouting,

    “Praise God for the Son of David!
    Blessings on the one who comes in the name of the Lord!
    Praise God in highest heaven!”

    the word Hosanna means an exclamation of praise that literally means “save now”.

    Jesus has the power and the authority to save us, also if we would do our part and that is to praise him in times of need.
