“Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High
will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.”
What a wonderful beginning to a wonderful Psalm! Did you know that when we follow Him, love Him, and trust in Him, we are very much dwelling in His shelter??
And dwelling in God’s shelter, brings much needed rest to our spirits. Resting in His shadow is an expression here of the peace of God, His protection, and blessing. He watches over us, and we are under His wings.
And I love the expressions in this verse, that He is the “Most High”, and the “Almighty.” When we say things like that, our confidence in who God is, gets boosted! He really is the Most High, and there is no one mightier than Him!
Heavenly Father thank You for who You are, and that you watch over us, and that we can rest in You. And that we can have complete confidence in You, and in Your power and protection! Amen!
