He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust.”
Just last week I finished reading - or really, I should say listening to - the biography of movie actor James Stewart. A Christian all his life, he spoke movingly on a number of occasions about Psalm 91 as a source of tremendous encouragement to him at difficult or trying times in his life.
He was not alone, and many have found the Psalms and Psalm 91 in particular as a great reminder of the protection and power of Father God in times of trouble and distress.
Here is Psalm 91 in the New Living Translation:
Those who live in the shelter of the Most High
will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
This I declare about the LORD: He alone is my refuge, my place of safety;
he is my God, and I trust him.
For he will rescue you from every trap and protect you from deadly disease.
He will cover you with his feathers.
He will shelter you with his wings.
His faithful promises are your armour and protection.
Do not be afraid of the terrors of the night,
nor the arrow that flies in the day.
Do not dread the disease that stalks in darkness,
nor the disaster that strikes at midday.
Though a thousand fall at your side, though ten thousand are dying around you,
these evils will not touch you.
Just open your eyes,
and see how the wicked are punished.
If you make the LORD your refuge, if you make the Most High your shelter,
no evil will conquer you; no plague will come near your home.
For he will order his angels to protect you wherever you go.
They will hold you up with their hands so you won’t even hurt your foot on a stone.
You will trample upon lions and cobras; you will crush fierce lions and serpents under your feet!
[Psalm 91 NLT]

On the top of those very billows, which look as if they would overwhelm us, walks the Son of God.
