The highlight of the day should be exactly when it started.
I couldn’t think of anything better to share with you than these Scriptures I’ve been contemplating during my devotion. Read carefully and consider them as God’s personal message to you today:
PSALM 91 (New International Version)
1Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High
will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
2 I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress,
my God, in whom I trust.”
3Surely he will save you from the fowler’s snare
and from the deadly pestilence.
4He will cover you with his feathers,
and under his wings you will find refuge;
his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
5You will not fear the terror of night,
nor the arrow that flies by day,
6 nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness,
nor the plague that destroys at midday.
7A thousand may fall at your side,
ten thousand at your right hand,
but it will not come near you.
8You will only observe with your eyes
and see the punishment of the wicked.
9If you say, “The Lordis my refuge,”
and you make the Most High your dwelling,
10 no harm will overtake you,
no disaster will come near your tent.
11For he will command his angels concerning you
to guard you in all your ways;
12 they will lift you up in their hands,
so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.
13You will tread on the lion and the cobra;
you will trample the great lion and the serpent.
14“Because he loves me,” says the Lord, “I will rescue him;
I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.
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.
16With long life I will satisfy him
and show him my salvation.”
Remember on your journey through this year that you have a God that loves you; Who, for His name-sake, will protect you, rule in your favor, and give you a life of satisfaction. Consider this, my friend, and know that in your every step, you are carefully guarded and guided. And if all else fails, or even if it doesn’t, to Him is where you belong.
You should realize how incredibly blessed you are. You only need to look up.
