Discussion for Psalms 91

  • Paulette
    This is a very powerful Psalm showing how much the child of God is loved, favored, and protected by GOD. He assigns angels to guide and protect his children. God even said if we abide in him, we will always be in his shadow, his very presence where the devil can do us no harm. Furthermore, those who love God and are totally committed to Him will be exalted, honored, and given long life.

I a always glad that God loves us everyday and that we are always assured of his protection. God is my greatest love.
