Those who live in the shelter of the Most High will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty. This I declare about the Lord: He alone is my refuge, my place of safety; He is my God, and I trust Him. For He will rescue you from every trap and protect you from deadly disease. He will cover you with His feathers. He will shelter you with His wings. His faithful promises are your armor and protection.
Precious One, come and live in My Presence, in the embrace of My Hope, in the safety of My Truth, in the protection of My Light. Then, you will find rest from the hopelessness…the darkness…the fear. Do not lean on the understanding of your own thoughts, and allow your emotions to be carried away. But trust only in Me, always. Then, you will be protected…covered…hidden, for it is I, the Almighty, who will rescue you from every trap of deception.
Do not be afraid of the terrors of the night, nor the arrow that flies in the day. Do not dread the disease that stalks in darkness, nor the disaster that strikes at midday. Though a thousand fall at your side, though ten thousand are dying around you, these evils will not touch you. Just open your eyes, and see how the wicked are punished.
My Child, do not be dismayed when abandonment attacks at night, nor when the arrows of blame fly in the day, nor when the memories of shame strike at midday. Know that no evil will touch you, if you submit all of these to Me, Almighty God.
If you make the Lord your refuge, if you make the Most High your shelter.
What will it take for you to make Psalm 91 your lifestyle?
PRAYER: Most High, be my Shelter: my Cover from hopelessness…my Protection from fear…my Light from darkness. Hide me under Your wings, so I would be shielded from shame, abandonment, rejection, and condemnation. I surrender my life to You!
Maintain an Awareness
So, yes, the deepest urge in human nature seems to be the desire to be important–to matter. But, it is not the PRINCIPLE of wanting to be important that is wrong; instead, it is the way we adapt or the means we adopt to meet this most urgent desire of our hearts.
