He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust.” – Psalm 91:1-2 (NKJV)
Everyday, we are bombarded with news of conflicts, terrorist attacks, natural disasters, diseases, and new strains of drug-resistant viruses. You may be tempted to ask yourself, “Is there a place where I can truly be safe?”
Yes, there is! God foresaw all these things, and He has promised in His Word protection from every evil known to man. There is no trap set by the devil that our Father has not already delivered us from. Our responsibility is to trust Him and take Him as our Refuge. Make a daily decision to find rest in Him as your dwelling place, and know His angels are watching over you right now. They give heed to the voice of God’s Word. Refuse to live gripped with fear by choosing to speak what God’s Word says concerning His promise of protection for you and your household.
You have access by faith into the secret place of the Most High where no evil can touch you. There is no need to fear living in these times because the Lord is your Refuge and Fortress.
Thought for the Day:
There is no trap set by the devil that our Father has not already delivered us from. Our responsibility is to trust Him and take Him as our Refuge.
