Psalms Chapter 91 Bible commentary...
The safety of those who have God for their refuge. (1-8) Their favour with Him. (9-16)
1-8 He that by faith chooses God for his protector, shall find all in him that he needs or can desire. And those who have found the comfort of making the Lord their refuge, cannot but desire that others may do so. The spiritual life is protected by Divine grace from the temptations of Satan, which are as the snares of the fowler, and from the contagion of sin, which is a noisome pestilence. Great security is promised to believers in the midst of danger. Wisdom shall keep them from being afraid without cause, and faith shall keep them from being unduly afraid. Whatever is done, our heavenly Father's will is done; and we have no reason to fear. God's people shall see, not only God's promises fulfilled, but his threatenings. Then let sinners come unto the Lord upon his mercy-seat, through the Redeemer's name; and encourage others to trust in him also.
9-16 Whatever happens, nothing shall hurt the believer; though trouble and affliction befal, it shall come, not for his hurt, but for good, though for the present it be not joyous but grievous. Those who rightly know God, will set their love upon him. They by prayer constantly call upon him. His promise is, that he will in due time deliver the believer out of trouble, and in the mean time be with him in trouble. The Lord will manage all his worldly concerns, and preserve his life on earth, so long as it shall be good for him. For encouragement in this he looks unto Jesus. He shall live long enough; till he has done the work he was sent into this world for, and is ready for heaven. Who would wish to live a day longer than God has some work to do, either by him or upon him? A man may die young, yet be satisfied with living. But a wicked man is not satisfied even with long life. At length the believer's conflict ends; he has done for ever with trouble, sin, and temptation.
Commentary by Matthew Henry, 1710.

Since "EBOLA" entered in our Country, God directed me to the book of Psalm 91. As for me, from verses 1-16 are powerful to our lives.

Angels are one of the benefits that God has given to us As I believe and speak God's word they are there to bring it to pass : I have no need to be anxious over anything : If God be for me and He is then what can successfully be against me !!! Mine angel are watching and waiting for the words that we speak to bring it to pass : But if I speak doubt and unbelief they fold their hands for they cannot do doubt and unbelief : Fear and worry : doubt and unbelief will stop all. I Praise God that He has given me the way of salvation to believe and speak and obtain from God all good that God has promised. Nothing is impossible with God !!! When I speak God's word in faith I am doing His word.
