The Friday Five: 3.26.20

We are taking a break from our usual Friday Five link roundup today. With the coronavirus ravaging our world, COVID-19 constantly flooding our newsfeeds, and quarantine becoming a reality for most of us, let’s read less news today and instead focus on our true hope—who God is. 

We hope Psalm 91 will minister to your heart, whether you’re staying indoors, serving us as an essential or healthcare worker (thank you!), or waiting for an outcome in a hospital room. 

Psalm 91

He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High
  will abide in the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say to the LORD, “My refuge and my fortress,
  my God, in whom I trust.”

For he will deliver you from the snare of the fowler
  and from the deadly pestilence.
He will cover you with his pinions,
  and under his wings you will find refuge;
  his faithfulness is a shield and buckler.

You will not fear the terror of the night,
  nor the arrow that flies by day,
  nor the pestilence that stalks in darkness,
  nor the destruction that wastes at noonday.

A thousand may fall at your side,
  ten thousand at your right hand,
  but it will not come near you.
You will only look with your eyes
  and see the recompense of the wicked.

Because you have made the LORD your dwelling place—
  the Most High, who is my refuge—
  no evil shall be allowed to befall you,
  no plague come near your tent.

For he will command his angels concerning you
  to guard you in all your ways.
On their hands they will bear you up,
  lest you strike your foot against a stone.

You will tread on the lion and the adder;
  the young lion and the serpent you will trample underfoot.
“Because he holds fast to me in love, I will deliver him;
I will protect him, because he knows my name.
When he calls to me, I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble;
I will rescue him and honor him.
With long life I will satisfy him
  and show him my salvation.”
