Psalm 91 Paraphrase
Here’s a beautiful paraphrase of Psalm 91 from Leslie Brandt.
The one whose faith is focused on God,
who finds his security in Him,
does not have to live in fear.
He is not left untouched
by the tempests of this life,
and he may be wounded
by the onslaughts of evil,
But his great God does not leave him
to suffer these things alone.
The Lord cares for His own and delivers him
even in the midst of the conflicts
that plague him.
If God is truly your God,
you do not have to be afraid
of the enemy that threatens
or the affliction that lays you low.
Men all about you may fall,
never to rise again,
but the Lord is by your side
to raise you to your feet
and to lead you to ultimate victory.
Even the ministering spirits of His invisible world
are watching over you.
They will not allow anything to hurt you
except by God’s loving permission
and through His eternal concern.
Our loving God has promised it:
“Because My child loves Me,
I will never let him go.
I shall feel the pain of his wounds
and bear his hurt
and shall transform that which is ugly
into that which enriches and blesses.
And when he cries out in agony,
I shall hear and answer him.
I will be close to him and will deliver him,
and I will grant him eternal life.”
