If you make the Most High your dwelling – even the LORD, who is my refuge – then no harm will befall you, no disaster will come near your tent. For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways; they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone. You will tread upon the lion and the cobra; you will trample the great lion and the serpent.
One of the major themes throughout the Word of God is, “Fear not!” We can rest assured in the shelter of the Lord. We don’t need to worry over the path ahead. We know that the Lord has everything under control.
But there is a big “if.” If you make the Lord your dwelling place and refuge.
Would someone observing you for the first time say that you seem to live in the presence of God? Is your whole life wrapped up in seeking Him? Is He your refuge and dwelling place? Do you run to Him first in times of trouble?
These are the questions for you to ponder today as you are quiet in the presence of the Lord. If you cannot answer them affirmatively then you need to move closer to God. You need to seek the guidance of His Spirit to show you the path toward intimacy with the Lord.
Even if you can answer yes to the above – your relationship needs constant cultivation in order for it to keep from becoming stagnant. Go to the Lord today for a fresh touch of His presence. Receive what you need to get you through this day victoriously.
