Over the centuries Psalm 91 has been the Scripture people have turned to for comfort and courage. No wonder it is dubbed the “foxhole” Psalm. Authorship of this Psalm is debated: either Moses or David. Whichever way the conclusion goes, this is fairly certain, Psalm 91 was written by a spiritual giant in the later years of life.
Both Moses and David lived through dangerously violent times to experience the delivering hand of God. Both men learned to trust God in what appeared to be impossible circumstances. In the process, Moses came to be know as the deliverer of Israel and David came to be know as a man after God’s own heart.
So, the Holy Spirit came upon one of these men, inspiring him to write out Psalm 91, a psalm filled with promises of blessing and power from God. The psalmist could write with clarity and assurance on these issues because he had experienced them first-hand.
We now turn to Psalm 91 to gain understanding as to what God has done and promises to do. The writing is filled with promises that take a bit of unpacking to discover. This unpacking is done through intensive scripture study, word study and prayer.
