8 Powerful Promises Of God Straight From Psalm 91

“He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.” Psalm 91:1. An amazing verse, and an incredible truth! We might not always get the sense this is the reality in our lives, but God is always with us, and we can always run to Him for shelter. 

"The word “dwell” used in this verse actually means, “to take up permanent residence in.” He reminds us to stay in His presence, for it’s a permanent place of living. His Word says if we do that, we will “rest” in the very "shadow of the Almighty," writes Debbie McDaniel at Crosswalk. 

This entire chapter of Psalm 91 is packed to the brim with the goodness and power of God. These are phenomenal reminders that He faithfully works on behalf of those who love Him.  And at the end of it all, God gives 8 reasons of why we do not have to fear.

He promises:

“Because he loves me,” says the Lord, “I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.  He will call on me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him.  With long life I will satisfy him and show him my salvation.” Psalm 91:14-16

What God says:

- "I will rescue him..." (deliver, cause to escape)

- "I will protect him..." (set him on a high place)

- "I will answer him..." (respond to, speak)

- "I will be with him in trouble..." (in afflictions, in distress)

- "I will deliver him..." (rescue, to bring into safety)

- "and honor him..." (to make rich, strong, heavy with honor)

- "With long life will I satisfy him..." (to have abundance in the journey)

- "and show him my salvation." (let him see my deliverance & victory)

"Don’t ever doubt it. God works on behalf of those who love Him and honor His name. He is so good to us. We may never fully know, this side of heaven, how very much He has sheltered us from in this life."
