This Shabbat I’m reading Tehillim / Psalm 91.
Shabbat Shalom, friends!
As we are walking with Adonai i.e having a relationship with the Almighty Living God of Israel, we have also found shelter; a dwelling place in Adonai. This dwelling place offers protection as well as a place to speak to Adonai, in the name of Yeshua through prayer. Even-though, we are living in an ever-increasing dark world, we don’t have to fear for no disaster will happen to us and Adonai will answer us when we speak to Him.
Furthermore, Adonai says in Verse 16, He will show us His salvation. The Hebrew word for “salvation” in Verse 16 is בִּישׁוּעָתִי -B’Yeshuati. Adonai keeps His promises and we receive salvation through Yeshua (ישׁוּעָ) who is the Mashiach and King of Israel.
There have been rocket attacks on Israel from the Sinai Desert in recent weeks. Please pray for the protection of Israelis and people affected by conflict.
Tehillim 91 (Complete Jewish Bible version)
1 You who live in the shelter of ‘Elyon, who spend your nights in the shadow of Shaddai,
2 who say to ADONAI, “My refuge! My fortress! My God, in whom I trust!”
3 he will rescue you from the trap of the hunter and from the plague of calamities;
4 he will cover you with his pinions, and under his wings you will find refuge; his truth is a shield and protection.
5 You will not fear the terrors of night or the arrow that flies by day,
6 or the plague that roams in the dark, or the scourge that wreaks havoc at noon.
7 A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand; but it won’t come near you.
8 Only keep your eyes open, and you will see how the wicked are punished.
9 For you have made ADONAI, the Most High, who is my refuge, your dwelling-place.
10 No disaster will happen to you, no calamity will come near your tent;
11 for he will order his angels to care for you and guard you wherever you go.
12They will carry you in their hands, so that you won’t trip on a stone.
13 You will tread down lions and snakes, young lions and serpents you will trample underfoot.
14 “Because he loves me, I will rescue him; because he knows my name, I will protect him.
15 He will call on me, and I will answer him. I will be with him when he is in trouble. I will extricate him and bring him honor.
16 I will satisfy him with long life and show him my salvation.”
