Welcome to His Encouragement Thursday! I don’t know about you, but Thursdays are my struggle day of the week. By Thursday, I have already been working hard at school and at home, and I just wish it would hurry up and be Friday already. LOL! I definitely need a little extra Jesus time on Thursdays.
He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty.Psalm 91:1 (ESV)
This week, it is on my heart to remind you that no matter how scary it gets here on earth God is ALWAYS our place of safety and refuge.
In Proverbs 18:10 we are told that “the NAME of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous runs to HIM and are safe.” This is why when you call out Yeshua’s name when you are being spiritually attacked the attacks stop. Because there is power in the name of our Lord and Savior. God’s very NAME is that tower, that refuge, we must run to!
The Bible is replete with passages that illustrate God as our source of refuge and protection from every danger known to man. In my humble opinion, Psalm 91 is the best, most encouraging passage in all the Bible when it comes to God protecting His kids. Psalm 91 is known as the “Warrior Psalm,” and I personally believe all professing God-followers should recite it, think on it, and pray it at least once every day. Especially now that every day feels so chaotic and insane and evil.
Do you live in the shelter of God? Are you able to hide in His shadow? Are you daily reading the Word of God and praying/meditating on that Word? If your answer to any of these questions is “NO” then I highly recommend you stop what you are doing right now and go grab your Bible. Right now is the time to put on the full armor of God. If you are not spending quality time with Jesus on the daily, your armor is going to be pretty weak. The war we’re entering is fierce. We cannot afford to enter into it with weak armor.
