91 Lamentation / Trust (community)
God Is My Refuge and Fortress
1 He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High
Will abide in the shadow of the Almighty.
2 I will say to the LORD, “My refuge and my fortress,
My God, in whom I trust!”
· The name of the Lord is a strong tower. But if men do not run into it, they are not safe.
· “Confidence in God will divest the mind of that dread and anxiety, which threatening events are fitted to inspire.”
· All real evil is averted from the people of God, or is so controlled as in the end to do them good.
· “Promises are not made to foster men in their turning after folly, but to encourage them in the course of obedience in their several callings.” (Dickson)
