Although we enjoy snuggling in at the end of a difficult day, snuggling in with God makes our days easier.
Psalm 91:9-10 If you say, “The Lord is my refuge,” and you make the Most High your dwelling, no harm will overtake you, no disaster will come near your tent.
The word “and” is an important part of this verse. Many people believe they are Christians but miss the benefits of dwelling with God.
Psalm 91:11-12 For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways; they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.
God does have the authority to change our situations, but first He wants to change our hearts.
Psalm 91:13 You will tread on the lion and the cobra; you will trample the great lion and the serpent.
We increase in power and strength facing life without fear, as our relationship with God grows.
Psalm 91:14 “Because he loves me,” says the Lord, “I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.
Building a relationship is what changes our lives as we experience God’s love.
Psalm 91:15 He will call on me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him.
We can call on God knowing He hears us and will respond. We are still in a fallen world laden with trouble, but we have a deliverer.
Psalm 91:16 With long life I will satisfy him and show him my salvation.”
Our relationship with God will be enhanced beyond our imagination as we snuggle in with Him here on earth, leading us to an eternity with Him.
