PSALM 91 AS A CLOSE EXAMINATION OF PSALM 23:4
The more I continue in my journey of trying to be a good Christian woman, the more I come to discovering the all-encompassing nature of the words of the Lord that we find in the Bible. Cutting to the chase regarding PSALM 91, we find that it deals with the “Safety of Abiding in the Presence of God.”
If I were to be asked to cross-reference PSALM 91 to another Scripture of the Bible, it would have to be PSALM 23. I say this because, in PSALM 23 verse 1 [NKJV], it definitely declares that “The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want,” and then continues by giving examples of what the Lord does.
What the author of this book, Ms. Thompson, does through its pages to educate her readers regarding the importance of the relationship they have with the Lord and having it be close. Getting to the specifics, I believe, she desires to remind her readers of the affection and the shelter the Lord provides in their lives every day; which I feel relates to what we find in:
PSALM 23:4 [NKJV]
“Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; For You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.”
For wanting to illustrate to her readers the Lord’s promise regarding His faithfulness to protect them according to what is written in the verses of PSALM 91, is the reason I’ve given Ms. Thompson the 5 STARS she’s garnered from this rather voracious reviewer of Christian books.
I read this book via an Amazon KU [KINDLE Unlimited] download.
