Today’s Daily Bible Reading is from Psalm 91:1-15. I love the first verse of this chapter, “He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.” The Psalmist declares that the LORD is his refuge and fortress. He trusts God to deliver him from the enemy. Have you put your trust in God?
The Psalmist tells us we can be secure under the wings of God. We can trust in His truth. We don’t have to be afraid. God is our protector. If we stay close to God we will be protected from the snares of the enemy. God puts His angels in charge of caring for His children.
Luke 13:34 says, ”O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, which killest the prophets, and stonest them that are sent unto thee; how often would I have gathered thy children together, as a hen doth gather her brood under her wings, and ye would not!”
Compare our safety as believers to that of a baby bird who is in the nest with its mother. The mother bird protects her baby and holds it close to her in the nest until the baby is old enough to fly on its own. God holds us close to Him. He protects us from the snares of the enemy. He covers us with His wings.
If we make God our habitation He will defend us. Those of us who love God and know His name will be delivered from the enemy. We can call on God anytime day or night and He will help us when we are in trouble. If we turn our lives over to God completely, He will take care of us.
Daily Bible Reading:
1 He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
2 I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.
3 Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.
4 He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.
5 Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;
6 Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.
7 A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.
8 Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.
9 Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation;
10 There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.
11 For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.
12 They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.
13 Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet.
14 Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.
15 He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.
16 With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.
Things to think about:
- In what ways do you consider God as being your refuge?
- How does it make you feel to know that you are in the shadow of God’s wings?
- Did you realize if you are a believer that God’s angels protect you? How does that make you feel?
- How does it make you feel to know God is available any time day or night for you to call on?
Prayer of the Day:
Dear Heavenly Father,
We thank You for this Scripture in Psalm 91, where the Psalmist assures us if we, as believers, put our complete faith and trust in You, You will protect us from the enemy. We can find peace and refuge under the shadow of Your wings. Help us to draw near to You and put our complete faith and trust in You. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.

by Deborah H. Bateman
About the book:
The Book of Psalms: Part 4 Chapters 91-118 by Deborah H. Bateman is 29th book in the Daily Bible Reading Series. The book of Psalms contains 150 chapters. Deborah divided The Book of Psalms into five books to make it easier to read and study. Each book contains approximately thirty chapters from the book of Psalms.
Psalm 119 has already published in a book about it called: Psalm 119: Thy Word is a Lamp unto My Feet. The book of Psalms is one of Deborah’s favorite books of the Bible. It is a great book to read if you’re ever feeling down or need to renew your relationship with Christ. King David went through a lot of tough times in his lifetime, but he loved God and trusted God to protect him from his enemies.
The book of Psalms was written by various people. About half of it was attributed to King David, whether they were written by David or for David is questioned by some biblical scholars. Some of the Psalms were written by Asaph and some say they were written for the sons of Korah and even Moses and Solomon were writers of the Psalms. The Psalms consists of poetry that was primarily meant to be used as songs of praise to the Lord.
The Book of Psalms: Part 4 Chapters 91-118 contains thirty-six Daily Bible Reading Lessons. Each lesson contains a brief commentary by the author, the Daily Bible Reading Scriptures, a few questions for contemplation or discussion, and a prayer of the day. It is a great Bible study for individuals or group studies.
