DIVINE RESOURCES FOR HUMAN NEED
Jesse M. Hendley
October 11, 1907---November 30, 1994
In Psalm 91 we have sixteen glorious verses, one of
the greatest passages in all literature. You will want
to memorize this Psalm if you have not already done
so. I want to ask you a question: "Where do you live?"
Psalm 91 begins with this tremendous truth, "He that
dwelleth in the secret place of the Most High shall
abide under the shadow of the Almighty." Are you
living under the shadow of the Almighty God? If so,

the Psalmist, let us realize that in the midst of
terrors and tempests and sorrows, there are Divine
Resources. For a Christian, there is always a Refuge!
In this Blessed Book, we read of a Fortress! We read
of a Habitation! We read of a Dwelling Place, in the
midst of all tragedy! God Himself is our Refuge, our
