Read Psalm 91:1-6, 14-16


Read Psalm 91:1-6, 14-16

Live under the protection
    of God Most High
    and stay in the shadow
    of God All-Powerful.
Then you will say to the Lord,
“You are my fortress,
    my place of safety;
    you are my God,
    and I trust you.”
The Lord will keep you safe
from secret traps
    and deadly diseases.
He will spread his wings
over you
    and keep you secure.
    His faithfulness is like
    a shield or a city wall.[a]
You won’t need to worry
about dangers at night
    or arrows during the day.
And you won’t fear diseases
that strike in the dark
    or sudden disaster at noon.
The Lord says,
“If you love me
    and truly know who I am,
    I will rescue you
    and keep you safe.
When you are in trouble,
    call out to me.
I will answer and be there
    to protect and honor you.
    You will live a long life
    and see my saving power.”

"Whoever goes to the LORD for safety..." - Psalm 91:1
In John's gospel Jesus says: "I am the way... no one comes to the father but through me..."  This doesn't mean that Christians have some sort of access control - it is a reminder that Jesus himself is the gate keeper.  Not people.  Not institutions... the Psalmist reminds us that God doesn't turn anyone away.


Lord, I turn to you for safety.  Thank you for welcoming me into your loving arms.
