Read Psalm 91:9-16
91:9 Because you have made the LORD your refuge, the Most High your dwelling place,
91:10 no evil shall befall you, no scourge come near your tent.
91:11 For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways.
91:12 On their hands they will bear you up, so that you will not dash your foot against a stone.
91:13 You will tread on the lion and the adder, the young lion and the serpent you will trample under foot.
91:14 Those who love me, I will deliver; I will protect those who know my name.
91:15 When they call to me, I will answer them; I will be with them in trouble, I will rescue them and honor them.
91:16 With long life I will satisfy them, and show them my salvation.
What does it mean to ‘make the Lord your dwelling place’? Van Morrison sings a song: “When will I ever learn to live in God?”
The Psalmist points out the blessings of living in God’s presence 24/7.
May this moment of prayer be my way of opening myself to your presence for today.
