September 13, 2022: Day 197 – Psalms 87-89 and 91-92

We find ourselves back in the psalms.  Remember, they are songs that were written normally after some fairly significant event in the life of the writer, or in the life of the nation of the writer.  If you remember, Jesus when he is tempted in the wilderness by Satan uses Scripture to defend himself and to ward off whatever temptations that the devil might bring his way.  When he was taken to the pinnacle to look down  and Satan asked him to throw himself down, it is here where actually Satan uses the words of Psalm 91 verses 11-12 where it states: “For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways; they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.”

You know it is serious when Satan himself uses Scripture to try to tempt you.  But Jesus responds that you shall not tempt the Lord your God.  That’s a good answer.
