Happy first week of 2019. Usually around this time we make resolutions or seek a buzz word for the new year but as I was diving into Psalm 91, I came upon fresh assurance. God keeps His promises to us no matter what season we are in and He doesn’t change with time. Let’s really meditate on what he assures us knowing that nothing or no one else can.
Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.”
Meaning stay close to Him and you will find rest.
Under my wings you will find refuge; my faithfulness will be your shield.”
Meaning with Him over you there is a shelter that never leaves.
No harm will overtake you, no disaster will come near you.”
He protects you from your enemies and keeps you out of harm’s way.
For he will command His angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways; they will lift you up in their hands.”
Mighty angels are sent just for you, to watch over you. Not just when you are in desperate need but in each and every moment.
Because you love me, says the Lord, I will rescue you; I will protect you, for you acknowledge my name. You will call on me, and I will answer you; I will be with you in trouble, I will deliver you and honor you. With long life I will satisfy you and show you my salvation.
So as we start the new year full of goals and hopes let’s cling to the one that promises all we need at all times, remembering that He is our refuge.
“Thank you Lord, for another year. I dedicate this year and all it holds to you. Do a new thing in me so that others will see your reflection in all I say and do. I choose to trust you in all circumstances giving you all the glory. Amen.”
