vs. 11 Angels, not just one! Lord, You’ve charged, or ordered, Your angels to keep me safe and guard all my ways – and they can see that ‘fowler’ that I cannot! Thank You that my guardian angel isn’t a little gold-plated pin I have to attach to my clothing!
vs. 12 Your angels shall ( a promise) carry me and bear me up in their (more than one) arms to protect me from hurt. (Angels are big and strong, God,…so You are keeping me very safe because I know I’m not that heavy.) They will even fight battles against the forces of evil, as they did to reach Daniel. I know not to praise the angels directly because they, themselves in Your Word have objected to it, but I thank You, LORD, for devoting them to me!
vs. 13 Here, LORD, You get specific and name those I will gain victory over, and such beasts I have no hope of defeating alone, but my victory is another promise. My adversaries are strong and terrifying – lions, a dragon, and a snake, but Your promises are sure.
vs. 14 Now You, Lord, are speaking directly in the psalm.
What more afirmation of the promises given but that they are spoken directlyto the reader.
-To know You as Saviour puts me in the place of promise.
-When I set my love upon You or focus my adoration and afections toward you I gain Your protection and help.
