Wesley's Notes for Psalms 91:5

Discussion for Psalms 91

  • Johno
    This is the psalm that my Grandfather read to himself everyday whilst in the trenches in ww1 he served 1914 - 1918, four years of savage hell. He was gassed, and then wounded, but still survived!
  • Carole Nyaboke
    My partner became irresponsible, unfaithful and dint care at all for my 2 sons and myself. We eventually lost our home due to bills . I had to move to my mum's house since January 2017. Mum passed on due to illness. It has been painful. Now someone wants to claim and take away her property. This chapter is my hope and break through. I know God will answer my prayers . Pray along with my family

  • A disciple
    Carol (cont.); This will pass, and you will still be with Jesus! There will be many different places and experiences in your walk with the Lord. Since you are just starting out; the MOST IMPORTANT is for you to LEARN YOUR BIBLE WELL! Read it through; write it down; pray it in; and work it out! There is no light, no understanding, no wisdom, NO LIFE, apart from the Scriptures! The Lord bless you.
  • A disciple
    Dear Carol; I know EXACTLY what you're going through. The Lord is with you; fear not, Sister; you're in good company! The enemy will try everything to discourage you from following Jesus! Just look at it as the Lord counting you as "wood worth whittling on!" Opposition and separation makes us run to the Scriptures and to Jesus' feet in prayer: that's how we grow and get STRONG in the Spirit!
  • Carol Hollis
    A friend at work told me to start reading this psalm every day before I go to work and every night, I am dealing with true evilness and wickedness from 2 women on my job, I am at a place in my life where I seek peace through God and i want to focus on my salvation, but the devil is working through these women. I rebuke them and all that know God please help me rebuke the devil in them
