Psalm 91
1 He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
2 I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust.”
3 Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler And from the perilous pestilence.
4 He shall cover you with His feathers, And under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler.
5 You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, Nor of the arrow that flies by day,
6 Nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness, Nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday.
7 A thousand may fall at your side, And ten thousand at your right hand; But it shall not come near you.
8 Only with your eyes shall you look, And see the reward of the wicked.
9 Because you have made the Lord, who is my refuge, Even the Most High, your dwelling place,
10 No evil shall befall you, Nor shall any plague come near your dwelling;
11  For He shall give His angels charge over you, To keep you in all your ways.
12  In their hands they shall bear you up, Lest you dash your foot against a stone.
13  You shall tread upon the lion and the cobra, The young lion and the serpent you shall trample underfoot.
14  “Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him; I will set him on high, because he has known My name.
15  He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him and honor him.
16  With long life I will satisfy him, And show him My salvation.”
The Holy Bible, New King James Version, (Nashville, Tennessee: Thomas Nelson, Inc.) 1982.

This is one of my favorite Psalms when I need to “feel” the presence of the Lord.  Sometimes when we are going through a very dark and long valley all we need is to know that God is with us.  The Psalms are an excellent source of comfort for our “feelings” when we are troubled.  God has heard it all before!  And He can take any of our frustrations and fears.  Just express to Him what you are going through.  He already knows and cares and is there with you in the valley.  He has been with you the entire time and He is not unaware of your pain.  It is in your trusting in His plan that you grow in the valley of your pain.  Trust that God knows what He is doing and that He is with you and will bring the situation to be used for your good because you love Him.  Keep Him as your focus and remember that you will not always be in the valley.  You will not always “feel” this way.  Use your head and think about the things God has already done for you and thank Him.  Praise Him in your despair and thank Him for the opportunity to grow in your faith.  Dwell in the secret place of the Most High and stay in His shadow.  Only there will you find rest and peace.

Have a God Day!
