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.
