Psalm 91 is often attributed to Moses (as was Psalm 90). It has been suggested that it was written as a song to be sung by the Israelites as they crossed the Jordan to face their enemies and take possession of the Land that God has promised them. 

The song recites the glories of God’s protection in the course of fulfilling His plan for our lives. I’m sure the children of Israel truly needed to focus on God’s protection as they crossed the Jordan. Facing the giants in the Land of Canaan must have been a frightening prospect. Sometimes things in my life that lay before me are frightening also. It’s good to remember Moses’ encouragement to the people in Verse 11:

“For He will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways!”

Whew! As adults sometimes we forget (or disbelieve) that we have guardian angels!
