He who dwells in the Shelter of the Most High, will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust…If you make the Most High your dwelling, even the LORD, who is my refuge—then no harm will befall you, no disaster will come near your tent. 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. Psalm 91:1-2, 9-12
How do we dwell in the shelter of the Most High? This sure sounds like a place I want to be. How about you? There seems to be this condition of dwelling in His shelter in order to receive all these great promises. There’s another Scripture that says, “He will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee.”
I pondered the questions, “How do I keep my mind stayed on Him? How do I dwell in His shelter?”
The Lord seemed to say to my heart, “I am The Word.”
I instantly realized that to keep our minds on the Lord is to focus on Scripture. Before you open your Bible, ask the Lord to reveal His Word to your heart as you read. To speak to you through His Word. Ask in full faith and He will do it.
Believe that He will when you ask.
As the Lord gives you a Scripture, mediate on it all day long. Write it down and carry it with you. Note the book and chapter so you can find it again when the Lord has you share it with someone else. Think on it throughout the day. This is keeping your mind stayed on Him—for He is the Word, and the Word is Him.
You abide in Him by keeping your mind, heart, and thoughts on Him—His Word—throughout the day. You can then rest in peace, knowing that the promises in Psalm 91 are for you, as you make Him your shelter.
The Name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous run in and are safe. Proverbs 18:10
