Scripture –

Psalm 91:14-16 – “Because he holds fast to me in love, I will deliver him; I will protect him, because he knows my name. When he calls to me, I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will rescue and honor him. With long life I will satisfy him and show him my salvation.”

Observation –
The Psalmist is describing in these closing verses of Psalm 91 that the man who clings to God in love will have protection and be delivered. When we know God and call on His name He will answer us and be there for us in our time of strife. God tells us ultimately we will have eternal life and salvation through Jesus.

Application –
As we can all agree we are in uncertain times now, God needs to be my refuge and strength. God loved us first and I must obey the Word from the Psalmist and hold tightly on to God and keep the greatest commandment to love God and others. There is also warning that protection is granted to those who know his name. This means I must seek God and know him myself in order to make Him known. In other words I can’t call on Him in trouble if I don’t already have a relationship with Him. Good News, God sent His Son to pay the price we couldn’t for our salvation and everlasting life when we believe in the name of Jesus.

Prayer –
Thank you for the truth in your word and your love for me in sending Jesus for my salvation. Let the Spirit lead me to trust you completely and draw near to you knowing you are with me to be my deliverer. Have me live in that to glorify you. Amen
