Well hello to our friend Psalm 91. Let’s just all say it together, we all thought this Pandemic, Covid-19, Coronavirus, would be all done by now. When I started planning this study back in March I thought that by the time we got to July 31, we would be done with this whole mess. I thought for sure we would all be able to reflect back on what it was like to be in the wilderness and how much the words of this Psalm look differently to us now that we are out of the wilderness. Except we are still in the wilderness. We have been in the wilderness for more than 91 days. When will this ever end Lord! So, I think you will find when you read Psalm 91 that it will feel…I don’t know…good…sad…exhausting…lonely…maybe hopeful, yes, let’s go with hopeful. For God will rescue us, God is our refuge, our place of safety. We need not be afraid of the terrors of the night or dread the disease that stalks in the darkness. Yes, let’s go with hope when we read Psalm 91.
