Thirty (One) Days in Psalm 91 for Busy Mamas, Day 31: Move Into His Shelter

I’m always a bit sad when we reach the last day of our study. It’s such a blessing to study with you all (but it will be nice to sleep at night again :-)). Today we’re going to ask the Lord to sink this psalm deep into our hearts where it will change the way we think, the way we respond to troubles, the way we turn away from our worries […]

Thirty Days in Psalm 91 for Busy Mamas, Day 30: Paraphrase

  We’ve done a bunch of observing, and quite a bit of looking at word meanings and at commentaries and cross-references. Does Psalm 91 mean more to you now than it did four weeks ago (or however long you decide to take finishing up the study )? We’re ready to do some reviewing, some praying, and some applying what we’ve learned to our lives. Assignment: Pray. Ask the Lord to help […]

Thirty Days in Psalm 91 for Busy Mamas, Day 29: God Speaks

Today we’re going to wrap up our study of the text, and then we’ll spend a couple more days reviewing and thinking about how to apply what we’ve been learning. (Our 30-day study is going to sneak a day or two past thirty days. ) Let’s take a closer look at two more words and a whole lot of promises as the psalmist brings his song to a close. Assignment: […]

Thirty Days in Psalm 91 for Busy Mamas, Day 28: From the Trenches

I want to share someone else’s words with you today, because they so beautifully picture what Psalm 91 is all about. Amy, after waiting in suspense for over two months for a diagnosis, now knows that she has stage 2 Hodgkins Lymphoma. She went in for her first chemo treatment this past week. Amy and her husband have been a source of love and encouragement to me and my family […]

Thirty Days in Psalm 91 for Busy Mamas, Day 24: Satan and Psalm 91

When we’re dwelling in the shelter of the Most High, we trust Him, knowing that no real evil can befall us, because God is always using whatever He allows in our lives for our good and His glory. As we saw yesterday in the additional comments in Treasury of David, God even uses dangers in order to protect us. He uses lesser evils to protect us from greater ones. Spending a few nights […]

Thirty Days in Psalm 91 for Busy Mamas, Day 23: No Evil

We looked yesterday at the bold statements of Psalm 91:7-8. Thousands may be falling all around us, but it will not come near those who dwell in the shelter of the Most High. Not only will those who trust God be preserved in the midst of calamity, but they are assured that they will indeed witness the judgment of the wicked. Let’s continue with verses 9 and 10 today. What […]

Thirty Days in Psalm 91 for Busy Mamas, Day 22: Really?

We’ve come to the hard parts of Psalm 91. What do we do with verses like this one? “A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you.” And what about verse 10? “No evil shall be allowed to befall you, no plague come near your tent.” They are wonderful words, but how do we reconcile them with the reality […]

Thirty Days in Psalm 91 for Busy Mamas, Day 20: Shield

Think about the two main metaphors for God that we’ve seen in Psalm 91. He is a fortress, high on a hill, strong, impenetrable, a refuge to run to when threatened. But He’s also a bird, covering its young with its feathers, tender and protective. Timothy Keller, in Songs of Jesus, observes, “It is on the cross where we see the absolute righteous power and the tender, sacrificial love of God […]

30 Days in Psalm 91 for Busy Mamas, Day 18: His Wings

(Note: The links in the children’s lesson of the first post today were not working. This version has corrected links. Please discard the previous email/lesson for today.) We’re over half way through our study of Psalm 91, and we still have so much more to explore! Did you think it would be possible to spend thirty days studying just one chapter of the Bible and not get tired of it? The […]

30 Days in Psalm 91 for Busy Mamas, Day 17: Trust

God isn’t just a refuge, and He’s not just a fortress. The psalmist says he’s “my refuge, my fortress, my God in whom I trust.” He is the Most High, a high fortress on a high hill, invincible, and ready to protect us.  We can trust Him. Assignment: Pray that God will reveal Himself to you and use His Word to build your trust in Him as you study. Then return to Blue Letter Bible and open Psalm 91. We’re […]
