Today’s Encouragement is Psalm 91:9-10 NLT If you make the LORD your refuge, if you make the Most High your shelter,  no evil will conquer you; no plague will come near your home.
Make the Lord your refuge –
Do we argue with God’s Word? We sometimes read His beautiful promises, like this psalm, and our earthly mind says, “Well maybe, that sounds really good, but I know lots of people who were Christians who had really bad things happen to them, so I don’t know about that!”
Friends, this is man’s wisdom, our own human thinking, which God describes as foolish and worthless! 1 Corinthians 3:19a NLT For the wisdom of this world is foolishness to God. And Psalm 94:11 NLT The LORD knows people’s thoughts; he knows they are worthless!
My friend, when we think this way, we are doubting God and His promises. How can we ever receive the blessings of God when we choose to doubt Him?
Note the key word in this verse… “IF”! It is our choice to make Him God our refuge and shelter. Or we are free to choose to doubt… and to make something else our refuge and shelter… like what? My own wisdom? Some teaching, philosophy, or religion? Not me, my friend! Not me!
Father help us to recognize our own foolish thinking and choose to trust Your Truth, to you make You alone our refuge and shelter.
