Psalm 91:14-16 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. 15 He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, and I will deliver him and honor him.16 With long life I will satisfy him and show him My salvation.
People of God, the Lord your God has made many promises concerning His people throughout scripture. This text is no different.
God, in this text, through the Psalmist, identifies His people as those who have "set their love upon Him." Those whose hearts have turned away from idol gods and worldly desires and have turned to the true and living God by faith with honor, respect, trust, and hope with expectation.
These are the people that God makes these everlasting promises to on today. Those whose name He says "I know them".
People of God, the Lord our God promises (1) to hear and answer our prayers for He declares to us on today that "when we call upon Him, He promises to answer us." (2) He promise to be with us in trouble and to deliver us from them all.
Did you notice that in the 2nd promise God did not say "we were immune from trouble?" That tells me that we as God's people will have trouble, BUT, our God is with us.
(3) Our God promises to show us favor in giving us long life and (4) He promises to "save us". Yes, in the end we SHALL be saved!
Those of you who confess Christ by faith and have proven your love for the Lord your God through obedience to His Word has many promises to enjoy now and in the future with our Lord and Savior.
Oh, what GREAT promises the Lord our God delivers today to those who love and trust Him. Those whom He is Lord in their lives over all.
If you do not know the Lord our God for the pardon of your sins, you can get to know Him through faith in His Son Jesus Christ who died over 2k years ago to pay the penalty for your sins and mine, which we were not able to pay.
If Jesus is instantly received by faith in your heart on today, these promises belongs to you too.
There is no good thing that the Lord our God will withhold from those that walk upright before Him. Those that walk after the spirit and not after the flesh.
People of God, give the Lord our God thanks and praise on today for ALL of His promises concerning us in Christ Jesus.
People of God, cling to the Lord your God for He promises to ALWAYS be with you.
The Lord our God offers an everlasting covenant to His people on today. Do you know Him? Can you claim these promises on today as your own?
