Psalm 91 | Responding to fears in the face of uncertainty

To encourage people, we created this video of CBS staff and family reciting the powerful words of Psalm 91.

In the promise of God’s protection, we find hope. And this Psalm, in particular, has been a source of comfort and peace for many believers:

Psalm 91

91 He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High
will 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 you from the snare of the fowler
and from the deadly pestilence.
  He will cover you with his pinions,
and under his wings you will find refuge;
his faithfulness is a shield and buckler.
  You 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 your side,
ten thousand at your right hand,
but it will not come near you.
  You will only look with your eyes
and see the recompense of the wicked.
  Because you have made the Lord your dwelling place—
the Most High, who is my refuge—
10   no evil shall be allowed to befall you,
no plague come near your tent.
11   For he will command his angels concerning you
to guard you in all your ways.
12   On their hands they will bear you up,
lest you strike your foot against a stone.
13   You will tread on the lion and the adder;
the young lion and the serpent you will trample underfoot.
14   “Because he holds fast to me in love, I will deliver him;
I will protect him, because he knows my name.
15   When he calls to me, I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble;
I will rescue him and honour him.
16   With long life I will satisfy him
and show him my salvation.” 

In response to our fears in the face of this global pandemic, we turn to Psalm 91. We quiet our souls by quoting these verses which remind us of His protection, comfort, and care.

If you believe that Psalm 91 is a distant promise, download a digital version of Psalm 91 on your phone, tablet or computer and keep it as a reminder that God’s hope is always there for you.
