Today's Verse: Psalm 91:1

Friday, September 1, 2017

He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
— Psalm 91:1

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

At the end of summer's scorching heat, where did you find your shadow of protection and refreshment? When we place our lives in the care of God Most High, we find that his shadow of protection and refreshment covers us. Even in times of difficulty, we know that he has protected us from the worst of Satan's withering attack and that his presence offers us strength that we may not often see but always can trust.

My Prayer...

Give me eyes to see, O LORD, and a heart to believe that you are there when I cannot see any evidence of your presence. Please be my protection in times of attack and my refreshment in times that bring soul-withering despair. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
