Psalm 91: God Protects Through All Trials

In this study, God seems to draw us repeatedly to the theme that He does not save us FROM trials but rather saves us IN trials both in the sense of saving us in the trial itself and saving us by means of the trial as we explore Psalm 91.  We discuss much of the imagery — fowlers, pinions, eagles, bucklers — as well as possible ties to the Exodus.  We take a brief look at the role of angels and our need to not only be protected from evil but to be given the strength to battle against evil.  We look at what it means to cleave to God in love but we keep returning to the theme that, to love Him as He loves us, we must learn love through experience, not just knowledge and that experience is often given to us as the way to salvation by means of trials.
