Psalms 91:1 – March 22, 2019

You who dwell in the shelter of the Most High, who abide in the shade of the Almighty, Psalms 91:1 NABRE     

This psalm proclaims there is refuge in the Lord. Asking God for protection and shelter is like having the most foolproof insurance policy possible. But the psalm goes on to say it is more than refuge, God actually provides rescue. The psalm speaks of God’s rescue from illness, from persecution by enemies, wild beasts or any other misfortune. The psalm ends with God responding that when He is called He will answer the caller, He will be with them in trouble, He will rescue and honor them, in a long life God will satisfy those seeking shelter and provide salvation. It only makes sense to seek shelter and cover from the Almighty; life is completely safe under God’s watchful eye. We can see how this is brought forward in the coming of Jesus. Jesus dwelled among us, providing teaching to live life well, and ultimately a life eternal when we align ourselves with Jesus. Jesus through His resurrection provides the fullest divine help promised. With God we are constantly aided and watched over in such a way that we may not even be aware. #RichardRohr quoting saints said, the best part of being in heaven with God is seeing how many times God intervenes for people without them even being aware. God seeks our best life and under his shade we will have it.

Fear is recognized as a reason people stop work or don’t follow through on hopes in their life. God is the agent who removes fear and provides protection, safety and salvation. With God we know how our life will be charmed and eternal. We are spiritual beings living to bring our spiritual life through to eternity. By trusting God we can accomplish the most here and now.

Is your trust fully in God? Is something holding you back from your potential accomplishments?
