Bible Reading: “Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath 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 honour him. With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.” (Psalm 91:14-16)

“Because he hath set his love upon me” is the divine requirement for us to become recipients of the exceptional promises enumerated in these verses.

(1)  He will deliver us — “therefore will I deliver him.”

(2)  He will exalt us — “I will set him on high.”

(3)  He will answer us — “He shall call upon me, and I will answer him.”

(4)  He will be with us — “I will be with him in trouble.”

(5)  He will satisfy us — “With long life will I satisfy him.”

(6)  He will save us — “and show him my salvation.”

Oh! The victory won by loving God!

If I truly love the One,

All the loves are mine;

Alien to my heart is none

And life grows Divine.
