Why You Should Read Psalms 91 Daily
Every day that I wake up, I pray. I cover my head with a scarf or a prayer shawl and I wholeheartedly pray. I give thanks, ask for my needs to be met, and I ask for protection. After praying you have to live what you ask for. If you are thankful, act thankful. If you have a need that needs to be met, act as if he has already met it. If you are asking for protection, you have to live knowing you are. How do you do that? You do that by reading his word. God’s word tells you everything you need to know about yourself and your circumstances. Whether they are good or bad, he lets you know! The advice and instruction he gives in priceless. Not to mention his promises and the blessings he has bestowed upon us. One thing he asks of us is to speak these blessings. Well, speak life and good things. Our words have power, it can bring us happiness or harm. “Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof” (Proverbs 18:21) This is a great example.
Speaking good things, specifically, scripture can change your life. Literally! You are inviting God’s Glory into your home, your relationship, your job, whatever it may be. The Word is God, John 1:1 : “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God”. So speaking the Word is speaking all things HIM! Doing this daily really changes how you think, act, and feel. Not only you, but those around you.
My favorite scripture to speak over my life is Psalms 91. This scripture is a blessing of protection. Every day that you read it brings you a sense of safety and to be honest, it has protected me from many things. I have heard countless stories from people who have used this exact scripture for to get them out of trouble. I encourage you to do your research on it and pray about it. Please don’t just take my word for it.
Psalms 91 has 16 verses that detail the protection you receive from the Lord and his Angels. It gives you the strength you need to defeat the enemy and those negative surroundings. For me and my family, it is a weight lifted off our shoulders. Of course, we know we aren’t alone and have his help, but it assures us of his ultimate protection. By reading this scripture every day, you unlock so much! Within yourself, your life, and the things around you. In my mind I become a warrior for God, I can conquer anything. We are supposed to always think this way about ourselves and live that life. There are many scriptures that give you this mindset, but this one is my favorite. Hopefully, after you read it, it gives you the same outcome.
