The word today is SAY.
I am participating in a 31 day challenge to bloggers everywhere to write for five minutes everyday in October. This challenge was issued by Kate Motaung’s link up. Join me everyday as I chart our progress (in 5 minutes) on the unknown adventure with a known God.
Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. 2 I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.”
The whole chapter of Psalm 91 has a lot to say to someone who is learning to trust the Almighty in the shadows.
9 If you say, “The Lord is my refuge,” and you make the Most High your dwelling, 10 no harm will overtake you, no disaster will come near your tent.
Honestly, I am not in a scary place right now because I feel protected in submission to the Lord and my husband. I really feel like I am in a covering, and nothing could harm me. It is an awesome place to be, I must say.
Of course, I haven’t always been in submission and I can definitely see the difference. When I walk in my own ways, my own plan, then fear grips my heart. And instead of dwelling in the shelter of the Most High, I dwell in the shadows of a lie; the lie that says, “I got this.”
The Most High covers the shadows of a lie.
NO! God’s got this, and the truth in 1 Samuel 15:29 says, “He who is the Glory of Israel does not lie or change his mind; for he is not a human being, that he should change his mind.”
So I decide today that I will dwell in, settle here, inhabit, reside in, yes I will stay in the Presence of my King, because I know He loves me. And since he first loved me, I can say that I truly love Him back.
14 “Because he loves me,” says the Lord, “I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name. 15 He will call on me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him. 16 With long life I will satisfy him and show him my salvation.”
