Psalms 91 - Total Peace is Possible

 

Psalm 91

 1 Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High
   will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.[a]
2 I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress,
   my God, in whom I trust.”
 3 Surely he will save you
   from the fowler’s snare
   and from the deadly pestilence.
4 He will cover you with his feathers,
   and under his wings you will find refuge;
   his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
5 You will not fear the terror of night,
   nor the arrow that flies by day,
6 nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness,
   nor the plague that destroys at midday.
7 A thousand may fall at your side,
   ten thousand at your right hand,
   but it will not come near you.
8 You will only observe with your eyes
   and see the punishment of the wicked.
 9 If you say, “The LORD is my refuge,”
   and you make the Most High your dwelling,
10 no harm will overtake you,
   no disaster will come near your tent.
11 For he will command his angels concerning you
   to guard you in all your ways;
12 they will lift you up in their hands,
   so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.
13 You will tread on the lion and the cobra;
   you will trample the great lion and the serpent.
 14 “Because he[b] loves me,” says the LORD, “I will rescue him;
   I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.
15 He will call on me, and I will answer him;
   I will be with him in trouble,
   I will deliver him and honor him.
16 With long life I will satisfy him
   and show him my salvation.”

I know I have talked about this Chapter alot lately, but I felt lead to post it so those of you who haven't gone and read it right away will have the chance.
I am loving Verse 14 right now. I have been praying that for John. I KNOW John will come home safe from Afghanistan because verse 14 says that God will protect him. I know that both Detto and John will be fine because of the promises here.
I have had MANY people ask me if I am worried about my brother and husband fighting in foreign countries and I can say with TOTAL PEACE OF GOD - "Nope! I'm not worried at ALL!" God PROMISES to protect them many times in this Psalms. I also LOVE verse 10 -12!
The whole Psalms is amazing and I thank God for Peace in the storm and for his Protection over my family!
