He has Known My Name

“Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him; I will set him on high, because he has known My name. He shall call upon 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. (Psalm 91:14-16)

God Himself is the speaker in this section and He describes the blessing He gives to those who know and love Him. The word for “love” means a “deep longing” for God, or a “clinging” to God. This psalm has a Messianic message also of the future promise of eternal life. The long life was not only a promise to OT saints, but the prophets also wrote of the promised future messianic  kingdom which all who are abiding in the Lord shall have as their eternal reward.

As a Christian today, We have an adversary Satan, who through temptation is trying to destroy us. In the Lord, however, we have a Father-child relationship that will bring testing in our lives for the strengthening of our character and the building up of our faith. This is the everyday life of a believer, but to those who want to know Him as Lord and Savior, need to have a settled belief in their heart, that Jesus Christ, is the Only Way, the Only Truth, and the Only Way in life which no one can come to the Father, except through Him (John 14:6).

May the Lord bless your walk this day!
