I don’t know about you, but I need to be reminded of this daily! It’s brought even clearer to me in I Samuel 17:47, when it says, “It is not by sword or spear that the Lord saves; for the battle is the Lord’s.” But how many times have I marched out into battle with a toothpick thinking I was somehow “helping God”? I’ve found one of the greatest Psalms during these times of fear and despair is Psalm 91…it’s a wonderful antidote against that overwhelming feeling of dread, and can help me then refocus my mind where I can – Face Fear with Faith in my heavenly Father.
These last three verses of Psalm 91 are a culmination of all the preceding promises in this chapter. When we make Jesus our Lord, and trust Him in our lives, He will “honor those who honor Him.” (I Samuel 2:30) When our devotion is towards Him, God will hear us when we call, and rescue us from trouble. Finally, He will grant us eternal life and a final victory over death and the grave.
