DIG for Friday the 2nd of June…..we dwell not pop in now and again…..Psalm 91 v 1

As I wrote yesterday this passage is a Psalm of protection that we can speak over ourselves.

However there are also things we need to do to “get into line” with what this verse says.

Now, I am not talking about rules and regulations (or religions works). But there are certain ‘laws’ that are in place in the world that we need to adhere to.

Take for instance some guidance in verse 1 of the Psalm.

The Word says we should dwell in the secret place of the most High; this really means we should dwell in God and in the things of God.

This verse does not say ‘visit’ and it does not say’ pop in now and again’.

It does not say seek God in your ‘quiet time’ in the morning and/or ‘quiet time’ in the evening.

The verse says dwell, which means to stay permanently.

The Hebrew word for dwell literally means to sit down and implies the requirement to stay.

Flitting in and out of time with God is not enough to rest in His shadow of protection.

We know that in human relationships we need to have quality time with a person to really get to know them and to benefit from our relationship.

Why would we think this is different with God?

I for one am going to try and extend my time with the Lord, try some dwelling in the future; what about you?

Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord that I can boldly approach your throne and come into your presence any time I want”.

Psalm 91 v 1…..He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty
