Clarifying Psalm 91 with the words of Jesus

To qualify for supernatural protection

“I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.” – Psalm 91:14b

The whole of Psalm 91 is a mighty promise of protection. But to benefit from that protection, we must meet the qualifications. We must “make the Most High our dwelling.”

Jesus stipulated that if we obey His words, then we will be in Him and He in us. That sounds like dwelling to me.

Please note the similarity between the verse above and the one below. They speak of the same situation. If we are proud of the the name of the Jesus before men, then we are obedient and pleasing to the Father and His angels.

The following warning should make us tremble:

“If anyone is ashamed of me and my words in this adulterous and sinful generation, the Son of Man will be ashamed of them when he comes in his Father’s glory with the holy angels.” – Mark 8:38

If we are ashamed of Jesus in our dealings with men and women, how can we expect Psalm 91’s protection to be ours?

Lord Jesus, I resolve to always be proud of You before the men and women of this world.

  4. Thank you for clarifying this traildust–I guess being indwelt by God’s Holy Spirit does qualify us to be dwelling with God, for sure–over the years I’d begun to realize that, sometimes, it’s often a good idea to wait for God to actually ‘give’ a verse of assurance to you, so that you can confidently claim the promise within that verse, or verses, as genuinely being meant for yourself, and your own situation

    The case in point I can reference is what happened after my son was killed–it was when I was searching for something in the Bible to aid someone else when I spotted Isaiah 57:1,2, and as I read the two verses it was unmistakable that God had wanted me to take what He said in them to heart, to help reassure me about my son being in His care, so I could stop fretting over things–he’d been baptized Catholic as an infant, but you know how a mother might worry–I never was very sure about his attitude and belief about the Lord. [However, I was given his personal Bible with an inscription inside from a Catholic mentor that he’d been speaking to not long before his death, so that was very comforting for me!]

    Through what God did for me by helping me to realize He meant for me to take His words in those two verses from Isaiah to heart, and have confidence in them where my son was concerned, it really helped me in other ways as well–like reinforcing my confidence in God’s help for me when I needed it so desperately!

    ” The righteous perisheth, and no man layeth it to heart: and merciful men are taken away, none considering that the righteous is taken away from the evil to come.

    2 He shall enter into peace:”[Isaiah 57:1,2 KJV]
