Psalms 91:1 “Those who live in the shelter of the Most High will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty.”
Fortunately, most of us have an answer to the question of where do you live. Most responses to that question pivots on the issue of where you sleep and where your bed is located. You have to go many places during the course of the day, and rarely are you even in the same place unless it is at work. Most of your meals are in different places. So, that’s probably why most of us identify the place where we sleep and the place where our bed is to be the place where we live.
Psalms 91 is one of my favorite discussions of the promises of God and how they reflect on the quality of our life. The Psalmist says there is a promise for those who live in the shelter of God. I think the operative word is live.
The promise isn’t for those who stopped by for a visit. It is not for those who occasionally attend a service at the church, but for those who live. That means a constant walk and presence in the shelter of God. God’s promise in Psalm 1: 1 is that those who walk with God will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
You may be suffering like many of us with insomnia. An inability to find rest.
Today, commit yourself to walk in the presence of God. If you do so, you will find a confidence in God’s presence that creates the ability of rest in a sense of God’s control in your day and night.
Open Psalms 91 and read the whole chapter. You will find joy and rest in His presence. Know His feathers will cover you and provide you rest.
Have a blessed and restful day.
