Protection From The Covid-19 Virus

In previous posts, I wrote about how this nasty coronavirus that seems to have almost the whole world cowering in fear. But notice: I said “almost” the whole world! But we (Bible believing Christians) have 26 promises in Psalm 91 from Almighty God Himself to protect us from this unseen virus. True!!
For your reference, here is the whole text of Psalm 91. Following this quotation from the Bible, I will show you a list of how many promises God has made to protect us, and also what the conditions are. There are a few conditions, as you’ll see.

Psalm 91 English Standard Version (ESV)

He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty. 2 I will say to the Lord, “My refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” 3 For he will deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the deadly pestilence.4 He will cover you with his pinions, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness is a shield and buckler.5 You will not fear the terror of the night, nor the arrow that flies by day, 6 nor the pestilence that stalks in darkness, nor the destruction that wastes at noonday.7 A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you.8 You will only look with your eyes and see the recompense of the wicked.9 Because you have made the Lord your dwelling place — the Most High, who is my refuge — 10 no evil shall be allowed to befall you, no plague come near your tent. 11 For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways. 12 On their hands they will bear you up, lest you strike your foot against a stone. 13 You will tread on the lion and the adder; the young lion and the serpent you will trample underfoot. 14 “Because he holds fast to me in love, I will deliver him; I will protect him, because he knows my name. 15 When he calls to me, I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will rescue him and honor him. 16 With long life I will satisfy him and show him my salvation.” (Psalm 91)


As promised, here is the list of promises – and conditions!

    Condition: He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High

  1. will abide in the shadow of the Almighty.
  2. Condition: “…my God in whom I trust.”

  3. I will say to the Lord, “My refuge and my fortress, my God in whom I trust.”
  4. For he will deliver you from the snare of the fowler…
  5. …and from the deadly pestilence.
  6. He will cover you with his pinions,…
  7. and under his wings you will find refuge…
  8. …his faithfulness is a shield and buckler.
  9. You will not fear the terror of the night…
  10. nor the arrow that flies by day…
  11. nor the pestilence that stalks in darkness
  12. nor the destruction that wastes at noonday.
  13. A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand..

  14. but it will not come near you.
  15. You will only look with your eyes and see the recompense of the wicked.
    Condition: Because you have made the Lord your dwelling place — the Most High, who is my refuge —

  16. no evil shall be allowed to befall you,
  17. no plague come near your tent.
  18. For he will command his angels concerning you…
  19. to guard you in all your ways
  20. On their hands they will bear you up, lest you strike your foot against a stone.
  21. You will tread on the lion and the adder;
  22. the young lion and the serpent you will trample underfoot.
  23. Condition: Because he holds fast to me in love,

  24. I will deliver him;
  25. I will protect him,
  26. Condition: because he knows my name.

  27. When he calls to me, I will answer him;
  28. I will be with him in trouble;
  29. I will rescue him and honor him.
  30. With long life I will satisfy him
  31. and show him my salvation.”
Well, there you have it. I count 26 promises from God, and 5 conditions which you are already keeping. My suggestion: I urge every one to pray Psalm 91 over yourself, your family, your church congregation, and indeed everyone on the world. Friends: as Paul wrote: “be anxious for NOTHING”. Don’t let the enemy steal your joy! Come On!! We can do this!!
