Psalms 91:9 and the Bible’s Cure for Modern-Day Anxiety

“If you make the Lord your refuge, if you make the Most High your shelter,”

Psalms‬ ‭91‬:‭9‬ ‭NLT‬‬
  • Introduction to Psalm 91:9

Psalm 91:9 is a Bible verse popularised by the song “The King of Love My Shepherd Is” by John Tavener. It is also known as “The Shepherd’s Psalm”. This psalm is part of the Book of Psalms, one of the most popular ones in the Bible. The verse talks about how God will protect and save us from any danger we may face.

  • The Verse’s Meaning and How it Relates to Modern-Day Anxiety

The verse’s meaning and how it relates to modern-day anxiety are explained in this article. The bible verse mentioned in the section is connected to Psalm 46:10, “Be still, and know that I am God.”

This verse is often used as a tool for calming down and thinking more clearly when experiencing anxiety, which is being in an awful state. It’s a normal emotion that humans have felt for centuries, and it can be traced back to the Bible when Jesus was feeling the same way. I argue that a person often experiences anxiety because they have an understanding of God that is too small, making them feel insignificant and unworthy. This leads to the person worrying about what will happen to them and the future, creating intense anxiety. Quoting Psalm 46:10 as part of scripture help people overcome fears and find peace. God is not far. Jehovah is not sleeping to the extent that He cannot hear or know what is going on with His children.

  • Why This Verse Is So Powerful

The verse, “We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience,” is one of the most potent and life-saving verses I know. It had given me the strength to carry on when my world seemed to fall apart. It has been my guide through the darkest of times when giving up seemed like the only option left.

This verse gives meaning to our existence as humans and reminds us that we are not in charge of our lives but that we have been put here for a higher purpose and that there is always hope, even in the most dire circumstances. Hang in there!
