Upheld by Psalm 91’s promises

From the June 2022 issue of The Christian Science Journal

God keeps His promises! One such promise can be found in Psalms: “For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways” (91:11). The ninety-first Psalm has been a favorite of mine since I first read it many years ago, and I especially love the references to God’s protective care for us through His angels.

Before a trip, vacation, or any unfamiliar activity, thoughts of God’s love and protection help me prepare. The promises of Psalm 91 were proved true when my husband and I were about to take a flight for a short vacation.

A little more than halfway up the escalator at the airport, my suitcase wheel got caught and began to pull me downward. I remember saying “Oh, oh, oh!” as I was falling, but I didn’t feel afraid, even though I landed facedown on the moving steps. I am so grateful for the ever-presence of the Father’s loving care, which calmed me and assured me that I had nothing to fear.
