06.11.20 Psalm 91 Sign

Our son Chip and his wife Misty have a sign in their yard that says “Psalm 91”  We asked them about it and Misty got one for us. Yes, she’s a keeper!

Before seeing it in their yard I have to say I wasn’t very familiar with that chapter in the book of Psalms. I looked it up and, read it through. I realized how much this scripture talks to what Christ means to Christians and the strength and comfort we get from being His children.

This is the sign in our front yard!I figured some of ya’ll would see the signs around town so I’m sharing here what Psalm 91 says. I know that the New Living Translation is not preferred by those in the Bible know but it is easy for me to read and understand!

Psalm 91 New Living Translation (NLT)

1 Those who live in the shelter of the Most High
    will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
This I declare about the Lord:
He alone is my refuge, my place of safety;
    he is my God, and I trust him.
For he will rescue you from every trap
    and protect you from deadly disease.
He will cover you with his feathers.
    He will shelter you with his wings.
    His faithful promises are your armor and protection.
Do not be afraid of the terrors of the night,
    nor the arrow that flies in the day.
Do not dread the disease that stalks in darkness,
    nor the disaster that strikes at midday.
Though a thousand fall at your side,
    though ten thousand are dying around you,
    these evils will not touch you.
Just open your eyes,
    and see how the wicked are punished.

If you make the Lord your refuge,
    if you make the Most High your shelter,
10 no evil will conquer you;
    no plague will come near your home.
11 For he will order his angels
    to protect you wherever you go.
12 They will hold you up with their hands
    so you won’t even hurt your foot on a stone.
13 You will trample upon lions and cobras;
    you will crush fierce lions and serpents under your feet!

14 The Lord says, “I will rescue those who love me.
    I will protect those who trust in my name.
15 When they call on me, I will answer;
    I will be with them in trouble.
    I will rescue and honor them.
16 I will reward them with a long life
    and give them my salvation.”

Ya’ll have a Blessed day!
