    I love this Psalmist! It was used at my father's funeral. I have been reading it off and on for over 20 years.
    I find comfort in reading it know that if I stay/ dwell with Jesus, he will protect me from all hurt, harm and danger! He has promised to be our refuge and strength. Not only that, but as I near my 65th bday, I love he promises us that he will satisfy us with Long life!
    Thank you Jesus

    I find this psalm very comforting, it is one that speaks strongly of God's protection in the hardest
    of time. it assures me that the enemy cannot harm me whilst I rest secure in God.
  • ELLA
    I Love The Part Shall Abide Under The Shadow Of The Almighty. That's An Instruction, Or A Rule. In Order To Dwell Safely. You Must Abide. Mean You Tell God Yes I Want Your Protection Covering Me. Then Verse 3 to 15 Becomes Our Promises. We Have To Be Obedient And Stay Put. We Can't Visit Only Or Go And Dont Stay Long. Abide Means To Stay Put. God Want To Cover Us At All Times. Thank You Jesus.
