“He’s the hope that holds me and the Stronghold to shelter me, the only God for me, and my great confidence.” (Psalms 91: 2, The Passion Translation)
This prayer is an affirmation and a love song. In this psalm, we feel the deep trust and gratitude that the writer has for God. He has gained an awareness and understanding of God’s nature and presence through his own challenges and struggles.
The 91st Psalm aligns us with the truth of our protection. Here we are reminded of the divine Love that embraces us, that provides a feeling of hope at moments that may feel hopeless. We come to recognize that God’s power is infinite, and it preserves us. We are housed in God’s stronghold, sheltered by His intention for us. He keeps us safe and secure, because we are God’s own offspring and the very proof of His Being.
We can join the psalmist in this prayer and gain his confidence as well. The trust is singular. The song of praise and love shows complete devotion, a consecration to God as the only one for us. And He is for us. Our reliance on God, good, Love, Truth, gives us hope and peace in times of crisis. It brings us the clarity that leads us out of those times of trouble and into a life of glorious possibilities.
