Those who live in the shelter of the Most High
will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
Psalm 91:1, NLT*
Rest. Soul-rest, rest from anxiety and striving. The kind of rest implied in “Be still and know that I am God.”
How do we get it?
Live. In God’s care.
This isn’t a pause or a passing-through. We need to consciously live… abide… dwell… in His shelter.
It requires gratitude, confidence in God, hope and trust in Him. It enables us to bring Him our needs as a child to a loving parent: with assurance that He listens, loves and knows best.
God who loves us and who is our Good Shepherd, help us live in Your shelter. Your power is great and You are all wise. Teach us who You are, so we can trust You more. Help us rest in Your care.
