We are promised protection and victory! Make sure you know it so you can say it and live it! Psalm 91 is beautiful, meaningful, and wonderful. AND full of things like lions and enemies for which you should feel free to substitute any of your current challenges like work, relationship, or emotional challenge.
Also, I re-wrote in the first person to make it more personal. Artistic license? So, here it is for you to read and tuck away in to your heart.
Action: read this as a declaration in your life.
"I dwell in the shelter of the Most High
and abide in the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say to the Lord, “My refuge and my fortress,
my God, in whom I trust.”
For he will deliver me from the snare of the fowler
and from the deadly pestilence.
He will cover me with his pinions,
and under his wings I will find refuge;
his faithfulness is a shield and buckler.
I will not fear the terror of the night,
nor the arrow that flies by day,
nor the pestilence that stalks in darkness,
nor the destruction that wastes at noonday.
A thousand may fall at my side,
ten thousand at my right hand,
but it will not come near me,
I will only look with my eyes
and see the recompense of the wicked.
Because I have made the Lord my dwelling place—
the Most High, who is my refuge—
no evil shall be allowed to befall me,
no plague come near my tent.
For he will command his angels concerning me
to guard me in all my ways.
On their hands they will bear me up,
lest I strike my foot against a stone.
I will tread on the lion and the adder;
the young lion and the serpent I will trample underfoot.
“Because you hold fast to me in love, I will deliver you;
I will protect you, because you know my name.
When you call to me, I will answer you;
I will be with you in trouble;
I will rescue you and honor you.
With long life I will satisfy you
and show you my salvation.”
"Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the Lord your God who goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you.”
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters. He restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name's sake. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
