In what or whom are you trusting?
Where do run to and to whom do you turn when tough days come?
It can be difficult to know the answer to that question. One clue is to evaluate how you spend your energy and time. We all put our effort into growing and maintaining whatever we trust in for good outcomes.
Psalm 91 is the declaration of King David, that his trust was completely in God. He was king of a great nation. He had riches and strength. He had a mighty army at his disposal. Yet, King David put his trust in God. He demonstrated His trust in many ways. He spent time with God. He wrote many songs that reflected his relationship with God. He asked God for counsel and direction. King David was so intent on pursuing a relationship with God that God called him, "A Man After God's Heart".
Do you want to deepen and strengthen your own relationship with God?
Do you want to pursue God's heart and learn to trust him like King David did?
There are many ways to do this. One way is to join the 31 Day Prayer Challenge. They happen each month, right here on the website. When you are finished with the challenge, you will have a strategic and organized plan for your prayers. It will be 31 days long, plus 4 days of preparation in the beginning. Then, you can repeat it every month for the rest of your life. In time you will add to it, tweak it, and change it according to what is happening in your life. But, the plan will be a guide for your time with God that you create and keep forever. Go to the challenges page to learn more and to sign up for the next months challenge. Join others who are pursuing the heart of God and demonstrating their trust in Him.
1Those who live in the shelter of the Most High
will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
2This I declare about the LORD:
He alone is my refuge, my place of safety;
he is my God, and I trust him.
3For he will rescue you from every trap
and protect you from deadly disease.
4He will cover you with his feathers.
He will shelter you with his wings.
His faithful promises are your armor and protection.
5Do not be afraid of the terrors of the night,
nor the arrow that flies in the day.
6Do not dread the disease that stalks in darkness,
nor the disaster that strikes at midday.
7Though a thousand fall at your side,
though ten thousand are dying around you,
these evils will not touch you.
8Just open your eyes,
and see how the wicked are punished.
9If you make the LORD your refuge,
if you make the Most High your shelter,
10no evil will conquer you;
no plague will come near your home.
11For he will order his angels
to protect you wherever you go.
12They will hold you up with their hands
so you won’t even hurt your foot on a stone.
13You will trample upon lions and cobras;
you will crush fierce lions and serpents under your feet!
14The LORD says, “I will rescue those who love me.
I will protect those who trust in my name.
15When they call on me, I will answer;
I will be with them in trouble.
I will rescue and honor them.
16I will reward them with a long life
and give them my salvation.”
