Psalm 91:9-12 (NIV)
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.
Consider the following:
Today’s scripture lesson is expressing that divine protection will be given in all of our circumstances, and this divine protection is the word of God. We are reassured that we shall have the benefit and comfort of these promises, but it is our duty to make his name our temple and strong tower. In other words, when you find yourself in a compromising situation, immediately call on the name of Jesus and live a life that illustrates Christ is dwelling in your temple. For example, when you find yourself in a storm instead of lifting your hands to fight, extending your hand to take a sip or a puff, brushing your hands intimately on another human being, or placing your hands on new electronics or clothing; raise your hands up towards heaven so the angels can carry you through. Since the angels of light are here to assist us we should use and tap into this precious promise. It is my hope that knowing we have a legion of angels, brings both honor and comfort in the midst of your storm and pain. Always remember the storm will eventually run out of the rain. Even the hymn writer wrote, “O billows rolling high, and thunder shakes the ground, The lightings flash, and tempest all around, But Jesus walks the sea and calms the angry waves, And the storm is passing over Hallelujah!”
