I think we can agree that it’s been more than a little stormy across the U.S. of late. I asked my Facebook followers to share their “go to” verse when the storms of life were crashing down. Many mentioned Psalm 91, and I decided it would be a good passage to explore for our devotions. So for the next five weeks, we’ll take a look at Psalm 91, dividing it into focus sections. The first focus, as titled by Charles Spurgeon, is the state of the godly.
I actually love the King James version of this Psalm. “He that dwelleth in the secret place of the Most High…” We aren’t referencing all believers here. Many believers appreciate God’s grace and turn to Him in times of trial. (I’m not questioning their salvation, but looking at their Christian maturity.) Then there are those who cultivate a habit, a moment by moment intention, of being in God’s presence. That’s the “one” the scripture references. Those who take the time to nurture and develop a close relationship with God experience a different kind of blessing—the cover of His shadow. We’ll explore that tomorrow.
