Sermon Notes: The Soldier's Psalm

Psalm 91

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.

He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart. You will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day, nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday. A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you.

You will only observe with your eyes and see the punishment of the wicked. If you say, “The LORD is my refuge,” and you make the Most High your dwelling, no harm will overtake you, no disaster will come near your tent. For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways; they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.

You will tread on the lion and the cobra; you will trample the great lion and the serpent. “Because he loves me,” says the LORD, “I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.  He will call on me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him.  With long life I will satisfy him and show him my salvation.”



How does your church support the soldier, airman, marine, sailor or coast guardsman?  Today, Memorial Day, there were envelopes at the end of each pew, with the simple suggestion of writing a note to a service-member.  We had time at the end of the service to finish our notes and then there were receptacles in the annex to place them.  These notes of encouragement will be sent to service-members overseas.  I hope that my simple note of thanks will lift up a service-member and remind them that the Lord is their refuge.

  1. That was a very thoughtful thing your church did! Our recognized all our soldiers and veterans from past and present wars. Then one soldier who just returned from Afghanistan was given an engraved dog tag from the pastor. Also the pastor awarded one Vietnam veteran in the church a POW/MIA coin. It was touching.
