“The bottom line is that God is sovereign, and He often does protect his people. Ultimately, of course, he will always protect his people when we are with him in eternity. But even when he doesn’t spare us from present trials, it’s for his bigger purposes.”
(Holly Pivec – Spirit of Error) Why can’t believers ‘decree’ Psalm 91 as protection against coronavirus (as I stated in my latest blog post)? One of my readers asked this question. Here’s my answer.
Satan’s Misuse of Psalm 91
We can learn something from Jesus’ response to Satan when Satan tempted him to “claim” Psalm 91 by jumping off the temple (Matt. 4:5-6). Jesus didn’t deny that God promised protection. But he did point out that Satan was misusing Scripture by not taking all of it into account (Matt. 4:7). So, we must follow Jesus’ example and not claim isolated passages of Scripture for ourselves without taking into account what the Bible also teaches us in other places.
