Love you all, praying for you!
God showed me something recently. Psalms 91:1 - He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High, will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. One thing that is so incredibly amazing to me about God. He doesn’t play favorites. Humans do, God does not. He who dwells. Anyone can experience the rest He gives, but not really anyone – really its any-who. Anyone who… dwells in the shelter of the Most High. A recent Daily Huddle – Where You Live At? Spoke of those who make their home in His presence. Who always go out from and come back to His Presence. This is what this verse is talking about – the secret of your success. If you dwell in the shelter of the Most High, if you make His presence your home, you will rest in His shadow. Quite a shadow! Have you ever been in school where the big kid starts to tease the little kid – when suddenly they see a shadow – and to their horror – they slowly turn around behind them where the Principal is standing with his arms crossed and a frown on his face. The bullying stops. When you dwell in the shelter of the Most High, your enemy, the devil, cannot bully you. He can’t make you discouraged, he can’t tempt you, he can’t accuse you, he can’t distract you, or make you feel condemnation – He’s afraid of God’s shadow. He stays away. So when you dwell in the shelter of the Most High, not only are you hidden in His shadow, you also rest in His presence. It’s not that you take your ease, that’s complacence, but you are at ease, at rest – the absence of striving, or concern of danger. It’s where you learn to rest in His power, not yours. Do you need peace? do you tend to worry, or strive to fix things that aren’t working well, or provide for yourself? Dwell in His presence – you’ll rest in His shadow. It’s funny when you live in the rest God gives, when you rest in him, you work better, when you are at rest in Him, people respond better – because you respond better. Nothing rattles you, you don’t fear anything, not failure, or lack - so you don’t give off the vibe of fear, but peace… at rest.
When you are not striving and not worrying and not exhausted, you do everything better. People are drawn to you. When you dwell in His presence, you rest in His shadow. You’re rested, not stressed and exhausted; refreshed, not tired; renewed, not worn out, you function better, think better, respond better, you feel better, you perform better. When you rest in Him, He works through you. To dwell in His presence means you make His presence your first priority. Time in Worship and Praise, Time in His WORD, and Knowing His Will for you in this hour, so you can do it with joy! In PiVAT before dinner – God will surely reveal his will for you when you ask. In PRISM throughout the day – you will dwell in His presence, and the mind of Christ will take over your mind, He will confirm His will for you, and you will be at rest. Come back to PRISM all day today – What is your Meditate on the Word? What PRISM Topic does God want you to soak in today? Praying that you will Dwell in the shelter of His Presence, so you rest in His shadow. This will increase your effectiveness, it will stir your faith, it will keep you in the center of his will – where your joy remains! Living in His presence will bring fruit from your life. Abundance! The Good that He has for you. Bethel has a song – I will rest – in your promises – my confidence – is in your faithfulness. His love is waiting for you this morning (his loving-kindness), and His faithfulness is waiting for you tonight. (His steady firmness and security) Praying that you will Dwell so you can Rest! So every Good Thing that God has for you will pour out on you – and bless others around you!
Love you all!
