Every time I watch the news I’m reminded of the dangers of this world.
Shootings on a major highway in Phoenix, fires raging in California, and refugees fleeing from Syria are just a few of the stories threatening lives.
It’s easy to become anxious and worried. Fear can consume us if we let it.
But there’s another place, a secret place, where harm can’t touch us–at least not our peace or security in the One who carries us and covers us through this dangerous world.
Psalm 91 speaks of living in this place–living in the shelter of the Most High.
Psalm 91 is one of my favorite Psalms to employ in prayer for safety for friends and family. It’s also where I turn when I’m worried or fearful.
As you read through each bite this week, turn it into a prayer for yourself or loved ones. And dialogue with God about what it means to dwell in His shelter. . . How do we live there while our feet are still planted firmly in this dust?
Pour your coffee, light a candle, enjoy some quiet time. Crawl under His wings.
