Billy Graham on Angels and Psalm 91

Angels Have Charge Over Us

Modern psychiatrists say that one of the basic needs of man is security. In the 91st Psalm we are assured that in God we have the greatest of security, “There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling. For He shall give His angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.” If you read and reread this beautiful Psalm, you will discover that in Him we have a permanent abode and residence, and that all of the comfort, security, and affection which the human heart craves is found in Him. Perhaps no visible angels will appear in your life and mine, but God’s promise of security is nonetheless real and certain. Those who live in the realm of God have genuine safety and security.

Daily Prayer

Wherever I go this day, You and Your angels will be with me. Thank you, Lord, for the peace, love, and security You promise.

Psalms 91:1-16 NKJV

He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord , “He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust.” Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler And from the perilous pestilence. He shall cover you with His feathers, And under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall  be  your shield and buckler. You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, Nor of the arrow that flies by day, Nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness, Nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday. A thousand may fall at your side, And ten thousand at your right hand; But it shall not come near you. Only with your eyes shall you look, And see the reward of the wicked. Because you have made the Lord , who  is  my refuge, Even the Most High, your dwelling place, No evil shall befall you, Nor shall any plague come near your dwelling; For He shall give His angels charge over you, To keep you in all your ways. In their hands they shall bear you up, Lest you dash your foot against a stone. You shall tread upon the lion and the cobra, The young lion and the serpent you shall trample underfoot. “Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him; I will set him on high, because he has known My name. He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will  be  with him in trouble; I will deliver him and honor him. With long life I will satisfy him, And show him My salvation.”

  1. Psalm 91 “works” – in case you didn’t know. 😉 We memorized this chapter before going to Nicaragua. I had to stand on many of the promises within this Psalm when there was nothing else to stand on. Umm hmm. Love this chapter!

  2. We go in February every year for 10-12 days. I go with a medical team (although I’m a musician!).

    Right now I have many irons in the fire…worship, VBS, Lessons by Heart, recording audio books for the mission, counseling women online, and a home group, to name a few!

    Although I don’t know what God has in mind, He’s been telling me that my time has come to move into the plans He has for me. We’ll see what that entails. I’m not even going to try to guess where He is leading!

    How about you? 🙂

    Praising Jesus whose plans for us are for good and not evil!

    1. I am an ordained minister. I briefly pastored two churches hen I was younger. For the last seven years, I have served as deacon first, then elder of a small to medium size church in Rio Vista, CA. I teach one of the two adult Sunday School class, I lead a small home group during the week and I serve as treasurer. We run about 150-165 people on Sunday mornings. About 80% of the congregation is involved in some sort of Christian service, I.e. hospitality, visitation, food distribution, etc. It’s a great life that God has given me. Peace be unto you as God leads!

      1. My church is like that too. We have 400-500, and when we have an “appreciation dinner” most of them are in attendance. That thrills me to no end!

        Sometimes I wish I was a guy and could be a preacher. Alas, God has other plans for me. 😉

        May His face shine brightly on you today and give you peace.

      2. 🙂 She was blessed indeed!

        I’m considering becoming a chaplain, which would open more opportunities for me to minister in jail, hospitals, etc. Praying about it.
