Will abide in the shadow of the Almighty. — Psalm 91:1
Wow. I love that word “dwelling”. A place of shelter, safety. A home. A permanent residence. Makes me feel all warm and fuzzy. 😀 Are you “dwelling” — living, residing, lingering — in the presence of the Most High, the Almighty?
A place to rest. A place to be revived. A place to draw near. But also a place to live!!! Live in the shadow and power of the Almighty.
But let all who take refuge in You be glad, Let them ever sing for joy; And may You shelter them, That those who love Your name may exult in You. — Psalm 5:11
Sometimes we just need to be reminded to run to the Lord. Thankful that God’s Word is there to lead us. When we’re down and our heart is heavy, no matter the reason, we can take refuge in the Lord. It is there that we find gladness, joy that makes our heart sing and the realization that in Him we can rejoice.
Do you love the Lord? Seek His shelter and you will delight, glory and revel in His name.
To God be the glory! For in our despair He brings joy as we dwell on Him.
He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High Will abide in the shadow of the Almighty. — Psalm 91:1
Asking the Lord for a verse to use in today’s devotional, He led me to this one. I couldn’t help but think back to Psalm 46:10 that tells us to be still and know that I am God. Being still and not reacting without guidance is really the challenge to trust in the Lord. As we cease striving for awhile, we dwell in the shelter of the Most High. We abide in the shadow of the Almighty wherein lies our strength and trust. How can you not trust in the Almighty?
Think on that one word. Almighty. All Mighty. There is nothing He cannot do, there is no one who can come against Him and win and there is no one who loves you more. Trust Him. Practice everyday surrendering more and more to Him and watch as Jesus transforms your life.
Be still and dwell in Jesus abiding in His everlasting shadow.
