Psalms 91* The safety of those who have God for their refuge. (1-8) Theirfavour with Him. (9-16)1-8 He that by faith chooses God for his protector, shall findall in him that he needs or can desire. And those who have foundthe comfort of making the Lord their refuge, cannot but desirethat others may do so. The spiritual life is protected by Divinegrace from the temptations of Satan, which are as the snares ofthe fowler, and from the contagion of sin, which is a noisomepestilence. Great security is promised to believers in the midstof danger. Wisdom shall keep them from being afraid withoutcause, and faith shall keep them from being unduly afraid.Whatever is done, our heavenly Father's will is done; and wehave no reason to fear. God's people shall see, not only God'spromises fulfilled, but his threatenings. Then let sinners comeunto the Lord upon his mercy-seat, through the Redeemer's name;and encourage others to trust in him also. 9-16 Whatever happens, nothing shall hurt the believer; thoughtrouble and affliction befal, it shall come, not for his hurt,but for good, though for the present it be not joyous butgrievous. Those who rightly know God, will set their love uponhim. They by prayer constantly call upon him. His promise is,that he will in due time deliver the believer out of trouble,and in the mean time be with him in trouble. The Lord willmanage all his worldly concerns, and preserve his life on earth,so long as it shall be good for him. For encouragement in thishe looks unto Jesus. He shall live long enough; till he has donethe work he was sent into this world for, and is ready forheaven. Who would wish to live a day longer than God has somework to do, either by him or upon him? A man may die young, yetbe satisfied with living. But a wicked man is not satisfied evenwith long life. At length the believer's conflict ends; he hasdone for ever with trouble, sin, and temptation
