Resting in the Shadow



“Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High

will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.”

Psalm 91:1


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!

In Humility


In humility we find the strength we need,

as God works in us,

and through us bringing

the balance

between faith and life,

with peace conquering

all of our mountains.

“I remain confident in this: I will see the goodness

of the Lord in the land of the living.

Wait for the Lord; be strong

and take heart and wait

for the Lord.”

Psalm 27: 13, 14

Have you been praying for something for a long time, and yet you’re still waiting? This is difficult! And most of the time we can’t understand why our prayers are not answered.

But we can be confident! Our trust, and even our waiting, can actually make us strong. If we allow ourselves the time, our faith will grow and our confidence can increase.

And following God is not only about enjoying His presence when we pass away. He is very much a God of the here and now, and He knows everything we go through.

Lord God, please increase our faith, our confidence in You, even as we wait for our prayers to be answered, or even if they will not be answered at all. We know You have our best interest in mind, in Christ’s name, amen.

Walking with You

100_1584As the evening sky turns a darker blue,

I’m blessed my God, that I can walk with You.

Direct my prayers tonight, and strengthen me.

Forgive me for being so cynical,

bring peace into the circumstances

I cannot control.

I trust in You, Lord God Almighty.

I’m so glad

that I can walk with you.

Now You Will See


“Then the Lord said to Moses, ‘Now you will see what I will do

to Pharaoh: Because of my mighty hand he will let them go;

because of my mighty hand he will drive them out

of his country.’ God also said to Moses,

“I am the Lord.”


Exodus 6: 1, 2
