The Shelter of the Most High
Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High
will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress,
my God, in whom I trust.”
Surely he will save you
from the fowler’s snare
and from the deadly pestilence.
He will cover you with his feathers,
and under his wings you will find refuge;
his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
You will not fear the terror of night,
nor the arrow that flies by day,
nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness,
nor the plague that destroys at midday. (Psalm 91:1-6, NIV)
If you say, “The Lord is my refuge,”
and you make the Most High your dwelling,
no harm will overtake you,
no disaster will come near your tent. (Psalm 91:9-10).
In the last few days, I have heard from several friends who are going through a difficult time. Maybe you are one of them? Whether you are or know someone who is, I want to give you a word of encouragement today. I want you to know that the God that I serve is a faithful shield, a refuge, and a fortress. He is greater than any problem you are facing today. His Word, which has authority over every problem you face, says if you draw near to Him, He will be your refuge and no disaster will come near your tent!
If you are struggling today, remember that God is our comfort, our peace, and our joy. Draw near to Him and don’t let go of your faith. He will see you through the storms. He will bring you back into the light of dawn. Just continue to push into Him and trust Him in all of your circumstances. The mighty sovereign Lord and Savior will be your fortress. May the Lord our God keep you and protect you. May the blessings overcome your circumstances today.
Be blessed in all you do!
Your brother in Christ,
