Headings for Psalm 91:
Security of the One Who Trusts in the LORD.
Safe in the Lord
My Refuge and My Fortress

This entire psalm praises God as Savior. [Disciple SB]

This psalm of trust may be outlined as follows: the bases of 
security found in the character (vv. 1-2) and care (vv. 3-8) of God; and 
the blessings of security--His protection (vv. 9-13) and His love 
(vv. 14-16). [Ryrie SB] 


Psalm 34:7 (KJV)  The angel of the Lord encampeth round about 
them that fear him, and delivereth them.  

2 Kings 6:16 (KJV)  And he answered, Fear not: for they that be 
with us are more than they that be with them.  

Hebrews 1:14 (KJV)  Are they not all ministering spirits, sent 
forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?  



This prayer functioned as a blessing by a Temple priest for 
worshipers seeking God's help.... Such intercession provides comfort and 
hope. [Disciple SB] 

Angels are not visible, except on special occasions (Numbers 
22:31; Luke 2:9). [Life Application SB] 


One of the functions of angels is to watch over believers 
(Hebrews 1:14). There are examples of guardian angels in Scripture (1 
Kings 19:5; Daniel 6:22; Matthew 18:10; Luke 16:22; Acts 12:7), 
although there is no indication that one angel is assigned to each 
believer. Angels can also be God's messengers (Matthew 2:13; Acts 27:23, 
24). [Life Application SB] 

This passage certainly suggests that every child of God is under 
the watchful eye of the angelic host. According to Scripture, one of 
the functions of angels is to minister to the needs of believers 
(cf. Heb. 1:14). [Believer's SB] 

We will escape danger because God protects us as his chosen 
ones. Sometimes his protection will come in the form of angels given 
the responsibility of caring for us and keeping us safe (see Matthew 
4:6). Sometimes God may use other, more natural means, but his help 
will come. As we cry out to him for help, he will be with us in our 
troubles and rescue us. Ultimately, he will bring us into his eternal 
presence forever. [Life Recovery SB] 


According to the Talmud, every man has two ministering angels 
beside him during his entire life. (Wycliffe Bible Commentary) 

A silent witness guards every soul that lives, seeking to draw 
that soul to Christ. As long as there is hope, until men resist the 
Holy Spirit to their eternal ruin, they are guarded by heavenly 
intelligences. Let us all bear in mind that in every assembly of the saints 
below are angels of God, listening to the testimonies, songs, and 
prayers. Let us remember that our praises are supplemented by the choirs 
of the angelic host above.  6T366, 7 

Angels of glory that do always behold the face of the Father in 
heaven, joy in ministering to His little ones. Angels are ever present 
where they are most needed, with those who have the hardest battles 
with self to fight, and whose surroundings are the most discouraging. 
Weak and trembling souls who have many objectionable traits of 
character are their special charge. That which selfish hearts would regard 
as humiliating service, ministering to those who are wretched and 
in every way inferior in character, is the work of the pure, 
sinless beings from the courts above.  MH105   


The path of duty is the way of safety. Thou canst not reasonably 
expect protection if thou walk not in the way of obedience. Thy ways 
are the paths of duty, which God's word and providence have marked 
out for thee. The way of sin is not thy way - thy duty, thy 
interest. Keep in thy own ways, not in those of sin, Satan, the world, and 
the flesh; and God will take care of thee. (Adam Clarke's 


Laying hands upon Jesus, they thrust Him from the synagogue, and 
out of the city. All seemed eager for His destruction. They hurried 
Him to the brow of a precipice, intending to cast Him down headlong. 
Shouts and maledictions filled the air. Some were casting stones at 
Him, when suddenly He disappeared from among them. The heavenly 
messengers who had been by His side in the synagogue were with Him in the 
midst of that maddened throng. They shut Him in from His enemies, and 
conducted Him to a place of safety. So angels protected Lot, and led him 
out safely from the midst of Sodom. So they protected Elisha in the 
little mountain city. When the encircling hills were filled with the 
horses and chariots of the king of Syria, and the great host of his 
armed men, Elisha beheld the nearer hill slopes covered with the 
armies of God,--horses and chariots of fire round about the servant of 
the Lord. So, in all ages, angels have been near to Christ's 
faithful followers. The vast confederacy of evil is arrayed against all 
who would overcome; but Christ would have us look to the things 
which are not seen, to the armies of heaven encamped about all who 
love God, to deliver them. From what dangers, seen and unseen, we 
have been preserved through the interposition of the angels, we shall 
never know, until in the light of eternity we see the providences of 
God. Then we shall know that the whole family of heaven was 
interested in the family here below, and that messengers from the throne of 
God attended our steps from day to day.  DA240
