Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” Surely he will save you from the fowler’s snare and from the deadly pestilence. (Psalms 91:1-3 NIV)

What is a pestilence?  The dictionary says a pestilence is a contagious or infectious epidemic disease that is virulent and devastating.  For example, the bubonic plague was a pestilence.  Jesus predicted in Luke 21:11 that there will be pestilences in the last days.  Today we have a pestilence going around the world, the coronavirus or COVID-19.  Satan is hard at work trying to destroy the people of God.  We have someone stronger on our side – our Lord and Savior who is still in control.  We can claim the promise in Psalms 91:1-3.  We can dwell in the shelter of the Most High.  He will give us refuge.  We can trust Him.

Father God, we trust you and know that you will give us peace.  We know that we have nothing to fear because you are on our side.  Lord God, please help us to share your love with others around us so that they too will have peace during tribulations.  You alone can give us peace.  Thank you, Lord, for hearing our prayer, in the most precious name of Jesus we pray, amen.
