Dwelling And Resting!

If you’ve lived in the southeastern Texas area for any length of time and you had ride out one or more hurricane storms than you know the importance of a safe shelter to protect you. It’s pretty obvious that whenever there is a natural threat, we need something stronger than that threat to shield us. Well, the same is applicable with spiritual threats!

The bottom line is that we are susceptible to attacks from our spiritual enemy and from other dangers in life. Sometimes we need to be rescued from spiritual wickedness in heavenly places (Ephesians 6:12), negative thoughts, and bad habits. Other times we need someone to help us heal from something that we can’t handle by ourselves.

Psalm 91:1-2 refers to our heavenly Father as our refuge and shelter. As children of God, we can rest in His strength and power, knowing that He is able to keep us safe from any situation we may experience.

Because God created us, He truly knows what’s best for us. He knows how to protect our souls and keep us from looming and lurking dangers that we often can’t see through our carnal lens!

However, this requires that we go to Him when we need help. Hebrews11:6 says, “He who comes to God must come believing that He is a rewarder for those who diligently seek Him.” Beloved, we cannot experience the dwelling and resting in Psalm 91 if we do not spend time in His presence. He is the only true refuge to those who actively trust Him and seek His help. Regardless of what difficulty we may experience on this side of heaven, God is ready, wiling, and able to help us through it.

The best practice to seeking God’s help is through prayer. Spend some time talking with God, telling Him exactly how you feel. Ask Him for the things you need. As you seek His presence and trust in Him and He will protect you and keep you safe. Never forget that God’s word will never return void (Isaiah 55:11) and God’s promises are [always] ‘YES’ in Christ and ‘AMEN’ to the glory of God (2 Corinthians 1:20).
