I’m reading the Psalms in a different translation (the ESV) in a new Bible. I find I see many gems I might have missed before. This morning, I take great delight in highlighting the verbs of God in Psalm 91:14-16. I love that Moses wrote Psalm 91. What ancient writing with great wisdom! We learn this from God:
“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 him and honor him.
With long life I will satisfy him
and show him my salvation.”
We hold fast. But what does God do? He delivers us, protects us, answers us, stays with us, rescues us, satisfies us, and shows us His salvation. I sit with the verbs for awhile and consider all the ways God works on our behalf at this very moment.
Where do you need deliverance?
Where do you need protection and from whom or what?
What answer do you need?
When do you need His presence most?
From what or whom do you need rescue?
Where do you feel unsatisfied?
How do you need to experience your salvation in a fresh way?
