Happy New Year

Happy New Year, I hope the New Year finds you enjoying the blessings, the peace and the joy of the Lord. I was speaking to someone this week and they shared with me how although it has been a long couple of years, the Lord has been comforting them through His word. They spoke of certain psalms they often read which have helped them experience God’s comfort, strength, and peace. One of the ones they mentioned was Psalm 91 and how they are comforted especially by verses 1 and 2.

Psalm 91:1 He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty. 2 I will say to the LORD, “My refuge and my fortress, My God, in whom I trust!”

Those are indeed some good verses and I know they bring comfort to many people. Those verses remind me of the importance and the benefit of staying near to God. We can experience God’s strength when we dwell in His shelter and abide in His presence. It is a place of refuge, a place of peace, a place of joy, and a place of comfort. We enter into that place through a relationship with God’s Son Jesus Christ. He is the Lord; He is a fortress in whom we can find refuge and in whom we can trust. In this upcoming year, may we all continually dwell and abide in His presence.
