He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say to the LORD, ‘My refuge and my fortress, My God, in whom I trust!’ Psalm 91:1-2


“He is my refuge”: A refuge in every time of trouble, outward or toward. A refuge when all others fail. And is himself a never failing one, a strong refuge, which none can break through and into, and in which all that have fled there and dwell are safe.

“And my fortress”: What fortifications, natural or artificial, are to a city and its inhabitants, that is God to his people, and much more. He is round about them, as the mountains were about Jerusalem. Yea, he is a wall of fire about them (Psalm 125:2). They are kept by his power, as in a garrison (1 Peter 1:5).

“My God, in him will I trust”: His covenant God, his God in Christ, and who would ever continue so. And was a proper object of his trust and confidence, both as the God of nature, and the God of grace. Who is to be trusted in, both for temporal and spiritual blessings, and at all times. To which his lovingkindness, power, and faithfulness, greatly encourage and engage.
