Today is neither for long stories nor extended analysis of current events. Today is for pressing in to the Lord. Today is for being cleansed by the blood of Jesus. Today is for receiving refreshment from the Holy Spirit. Today is for being nourished by the Word of God. Today is for freedom. Today is for salvation.
While the world waits…
While the enemy schemes…
While humanity trembles…
While breath is held…
Today, my brothers and sisters in Christ, is a day of rejoicing in the Lord. Let us dedicate ourselves to following God and allowing His wonderful name to be glorified in us. Jesus we thank you, love you, and worship you! Give us the grace to come near to you and to dwell in the secret place of the Most High.
Armor up Christians. Today is for spiritual preparation. While the world waits, a storm looms on the horizon.
He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High
Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress;
My God, in Him I will trust.”
Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler
And from the perilous pestilence.
He shall cover you with His feathers,
And under His wings you shall take refuge;
His truth shall be your shield and buckler.
You shall not be afraid of the terror by night,
Nor of the arrow that flies by day,
Nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness,
Nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday.
A thousand may fall at your side,
And ten thousand at your right hand;
But it shall not come near you.
Only with your eyes shall you look,
And see the reward of the wicked.
Because you have made the Lord, who is my refuge,
Even the Most High, your dwelling place,
No evil shall befall you,
Nor shall any plague come near your dwelling;
For He shall give His angels charge over you,
To keep you in all your ways.
In their hands they shall bear you up,
Lest you dash your foot against a stone.
You shall tread upon the lion and the cobra,
The young lion and the serpent you shall trample underfoot.
“Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him;
I will set him on high, because he has known My name.
He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble;
I will deliver him and honor him.
With long life I will satisfy him,
And show him My salvation.”
