LIVING IN HIS PRESENCE
I will say of the Lord, "He is my refuge and my fortress; my God, in Him I will trust." Psalm 91:2
A refuge is a place where one can be free from danger, a place of peace and safety, a sanctuary away from the storms of life! Living and dwelling in His presence provides us the benefits of His protection, being a fortress for us as we trust in Him!
The shadow of the Almighty gives us shade from the enemies of our soul, just as walking with our earthly fathers made us feel when we were children. When I walked with my father I feared nothing, knowing he could protect me from evil just as My heavenly Father does.
In order to receive the benefits of God's protection we must first put all of our trust in Him, turning away from the world and dwelling in the refuge of God.
The Lord also will be a refuge for the oppressed. A refuge in times of trouble. And those who know Your name will put their trust in You; for You have not forsaken those who seek You. Psalm 9:9,10
Your servant in Christ, Timothy Laughlin
