Day 2 of our 21-day journey as we continue to fast and pray and focus on what God has for us in 2017.
“Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.”
This Psalm is a powerful and encouraging passage of Scripture and can be a tremendous source of faith and courage in our prayer life.
The word “DWELL” means to rest or sit down. When we are seated, we are no longer working or stressing over life. God is telling us to REST in HIM. Trust HIM with all of our concerns. We no longer have to feel that we are carrying everything on our shoulders and that it all depends on us. That is a lot of pressure to carry around and live with.
Let me ask you a question. Have you talked to God today and discussed all of the challenges and stresses you face or feel in life? Have you made a conscious decision to trust Him and rest in the confidence that He is working all things together for your good? Have you taken a few moments to listen to what He may be saying to you about these situations either in prayer or through His Word?
Take a moment and be seated in His presence. You may be – no I am confident you WILL be – surprised to realize that today is going to be okay because whatever comes your way – God has got your back!
