Feeling Warm And Comfy

"He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty"

After a day of clamming, I was on my way in at nightfall when a storm came up. As I approached the bay that would be the roughest, the storm peaked. It was impossible for me to make it through, so I had to back track and find a sheltered spot to ride out the storm.

God provides a place of shelter for us when the storms of life descend upon us...A secret place where we can be moored until the storm passes. In the midst of our worry, God has a secret place where we can be with Him in comfortable security. "He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty." The very words of this passage bring a calm to us. They bring a security that living in His presence gives us a place of safety where no harm can touch us. A place where we are safe....That place is IN HIM...

Being in Him means that there is a place to go no matter what the problem. If we have been misunderstood or mis-characterized by someone, there is a place to go. If we have been hurt by someone we care for deeply, there is protection available to us. When we are tempted beyond what we think we can withstand, we have a Savior who has been through it all. Only God can infuse into us His comfort and understanding. Only He can minister to all of our needs.

To gain this peace, security, and protection, we must enter into a personal and intimate relationship with our Lord. A relationship where we have close talks with our Lord through prayer. In Song Of Songs 2:3 the writer says, "I delight to sit in his shade, and his fruit is sweet to my taste."

What reason is there to leave His presence, when we find all that we need with Him?

Have a wonderful day....Make a difference...Love mark Phil. 4:11
