On the 91st Psalm

More on the 91st Psalm:

God is a place of shelter in the midst of all kinds of threats.

God tells us not to be afraid

God will lead his people through the midst of disaster unscathed.

God will order his angels to protect us.

God will rescue, protect, answer and honor us.

On Prayer


We have been talking about the 91st Psalm, which is the great Psalm of protection. And I'm going to talk about the most important thing now that has to do with fear. Fear. And the Bible says, "Do not be afraid."

"Do not be afraid."

All of us are afraid. A little child is afraid of the dark. What's out there? We're afraid of walking in a deserted street down some city block. We're afraid. And what are we afraid of? Well, the Bible says, "Do not be afraid," number one, "of the terrors of the night." And what are the things that go through people's minds? The terrors of the night. There's some people who are afraid they hear noises in the bushes. They hear somebody trying to get into their house.

The problem now is that with crime being what it is, we do have terrors in the night. "Nor," He says, "from the dangers of the day." And there are terrors at night and there are dangers of the day. And the Bible says you will not be afraid of either the terrors or the dangers. You don't have to be afraid of these things.

He also says, "Nor dread the plague that stalks in darkness or the disaster that strikes in mid-day." So He's talking about now a plague at night. You can't see it. It could be anthrax. It could be Sarin gas. It could be VX. It's a plague that strikes in the night. And He said, "disaster that strikes at the daytime." Automobile wreck. Cars. Nuclear bomb. "That strikes at mid-day."

God Almighty wants to take care of His people, and He says, "Do not be afraid of these things." You don't have to be afraid of terror of the night, dangers of the day, plague in the darkness, disaster at midnight. All these things may happen, but He says we who know Him, we who dwell in the secret place of the Most High God, will abide under the shadow of the Almighty. He will keep us safe from the things that are stalking about to destroy us. Read this 91st Psalm. Memorize it. Let it fill your heart with faith.

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
—Philippians 4:13
