He Answers Me

Psalm 91:14-15 The Lord says, “I will rescue those who love me. I will protect those who trust in my name. When they call on me, I will answer; I will be with them in trouble. I will rescue and honor them.

Many years ago I turned Psalm 91 into a t-shirt design. I was speaking at different churches, conferences, and events and branched into selling clothing in addition to my book, Single Christian Female.

I transformed the psalm by turning each personal pronoun to she or her, thus personalising it for women. Of all the verses, 14 to 16 are my favourite when changed this way. The shirt read,

Because she has set her love upon Me, therefore I will deliver her; I will set her on high, because she has known My name. She shall call upon Me, and I will answer her; I will be with her in trouble; I will deliver her and honor her. With long life I will satisfy her, And show her My salvation.

“Because she has set her love upon me…”

It is the greatest privilege to set love upon my God. More than worship. More than words. It is a living sacrifice. Completely devoted. Living for His pleasure and delight.

I am that girl. The one who has set her love upon the Lord. The one who loves Him with all her being.

Not that I do it for the benefits, but when you love God with all your heart, mind, and strength, it does not go unnoticed. The Lord showers deliverance, honour, answered prayer, and life satisfaction upon such people. He sets His abundant love on us.

Because you have set your love upon the Most High, He has set His love on you. His eye is on your life, delivering you from evil, answering prayer.

Set your love upon Him in this moment, and capture the love He has set upon your soul.
