Psalm 91:1-16 NLT
1 Those who live in the shelter of the Most High
will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
2 This I declare about the Lord:
He alone is my refuge, my place of safety;
he is my God, and I trust him.
3 For he will rescue you from every trap
and protect you from deadly disease.
4 He will cover you with his feathers.
He will shelter you with his wings.
His faithful promises are your armor and protection.
5 Do not be afraid of the terrors of the night,
nor the arrow that flies in the day.
6 Do not dread the disease that stalks in darkness,
nor the disaster that strikes at midday.
7 Though a thousand fall at your side,
though ten thousand are dying around you,
these evils will not touch you.
8 Just open your eyes,
and see how the wicked are punished.
9 If you make the Lord your refuge,
if you make the Most High your shelter,
10 no evil will conquer you;
no plague will come near your home.
11 For he will order his angels
to protect you wherever you go.
12 They will hold you up with their hands
so you won’t even hurt your foot on a stone.
13 You will trample upon lions and cobras;
you will crush fierce lions and serpents under your feet!
14 The Lord says, “I will rescue those who love me.
I will protect those who trust in my name.
15 When they call on me, I will answer;
I will be with them in trouble.
I will rescue and honor them.
16 I will reward them with a long life
and give them my salvation.”
Yesterday my day was horrible. Emotionally and physically. I could not stay out of my feelings about everything I am dealing with. My health, my finances, my desires. It was all about me. Oh but God. Even though my flesh took over God was still right there whispering, "I will not leave you nor forsake you". Even though I wanted to focus on the negatives, God said, "trust in the Lord with your whole heart, with your whole soul and with your own mind". Sleep was my resolution.
Today, I am reminded and refreshed. Today, it does not matter the lot, all is well. Though the issues have not changed, my attitude about my issues have. Instead of sinking into the pit of a black hole about the tests of life I must take, I rejoice in knowing that all things work together for the good of those who love the Lord. I choose today happiness no matter what. Today, I say to God be the glory. I say today, devil your a lier. I am posted up, armoured up, prayed up. Got my shield and sword. Helmet is on tight. The breastplate is securely in place. I am THE WINNER.
Whatever you are facing and walking in today, know that God is your source and the only source. Don't talk about it, be about it. The Fathers business.
