Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress. My Good, in whom I trust.”
Surely He will save you from the fowler’s snare and from the deadly pestilence.
He will cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you will find refuge; His faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
You will not fear the terror of night nor the arrow that flies by day.
Nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday.
A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you.
You will only observe with your eyes and see the punishment of the wicked.
If you say, “The LORD is my refuge,” and you make the Most High your dwelling,
No harm will overtake you, no disaster will come near your tent.
For He will command His angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways.
They will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.
You will tread on the lion and the cobra; you will trample the great lion and the serpent.
“Because he loves me,” says the LORD, “I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.
He will call on 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 Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High
will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
2 I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress,
my God, in whom I trust.”
3 Surely he will save you
from the fowler’s snare
and from the deadly pestilence.
4 He will cover you with his feathers,
and under his wings you will find refuge;
his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
5 You will not fear the terror of night,
nor the arrow that flies by day,
6 nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness,
nor the plague that destroys at midday.
7 A thousand may fall at your side,
ten thousand at your right hand,
but it will not come near you.
8 You will only observe with your eyes
and see the punishment of the wicked.
9 If you say, “The Lord is my refuge,”
and you make the Most High your dwelling,
10 no harm will overtake you,
no disaster will come near your tent.

to guard you in all your ways;
12 they will lift you up in their hands,
so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.
13 You will tread on the lion and the cobra;
you will trample the great lion and the serpent.
14 “Because he loves me,” says the Lord, “I will rescue him;
I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.

As I was preparing this post and searching for resources, I found the book (shown above) titled, Psalm 91: Real-Life Stories of God’s Shield of Protection And What This Psalm Means for You & Those You Love. It is by Peggy Joyce Ruth. I ordered a copy and plan to make it my first read for the New Year. I’ll let you know what I think 🙂

Every picture is beautiful and stunning. I love that you used each bloom to display a verse. Love everything about it. The first verse has special meaning to me. My word for the year is "Dwell." I reference Psalm 27:4. Thank you for sharing.

I am a firm believer in God. I can feel that God is there with me all the time. When I see my kids's innoncent faces, I thank God to bless me with such adorable cuties!
Loved reading the quotes. Thanks for the post: it made my day!!
Beautiful post…thank you. We have that book and have been so blessed by CJ's ministry over the years. He used to speak at the Bible camps we attended here in UK.
WOW! These photos of your flowers are gorgeous and I love the Bible verses as well! Great post!
You shared the psalm so beautifully and creatively. Certainly as each verse is separate and so written in such a beautiful font along with the gorgeous flowers, one can pause and meditate on each thought! I know it was a lot of work, but thank you for the blessing today!
These are gorgeous!!!!! You should make them into postcards! I know I would buy some!! 🙂
