Congratulations. You made it to the end of this study. Today we will take time to review Psalm 91 in the Amplified Bible or another translation of your choice. Reviewing is important because it helps to cement the truths into our lives.
So many people are filled with fear over all that is happening in the world. We have a choice of whether we will trust God and His Word, or if we will live in fear. Which are you choosing right now?
The Lord taught me a powerful lesson recently when I was in Israel. When I opened my front door, a ten to twelve-inch snake was climbing up the door. I slammed the door shut with the snake’s head inside the apartment. Later when I opened the door, it fell to the ground lifeless, with three to four inches still visible when I closed the door. A while later, it started to move. While I ran to get something to smack it, it disappeared. Thankfully, I later found it outside, dead. God used that to teach me a valuable lesson about trusting Him and not being afraid.
In the coming days we will have much greater things that can cause fear. We need to know God loves us and protects us, so that we don’t fear anything. Do I trust God that much? Do you? Why or why not?
Ask yourself the following questions about the overall study:
- What have I learned through this study?
- What areas were the most difficult for me as I went through this study?
- What am I applying to my life from this study?
answer these questions about each verse of Psalm 91, writing your answers after each verse or in a separate journal:
- What is God saying to me through this verse?
- What might I need to do to experience the truths in this verse in greater ways?
Study this Psalm in other Bible Translations.
I encourage you to pray this psalm daily over your life and family, especially when any of you are struggling with fear or are facing major challenges.
