excerpt from On Trusting God – Psalm 91

He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust” (Psalm 91).

This is reality. There is no other being in the whole of the cosmos that will not be shaken.

Take a moment and articulate in your own words to God that he is your refuge. Ask him to come and to remove any false refuge you have constructed apart from him. If you can trust him in this, communicate it out loud. Tell him that you trust him to come and remove what is false so that he alone will be left. If you have not yet arrived at this place, tell him so. He’s not intimidated by our weakness. But do communicate your desire to trust him. Invite him to show you the path to trusting fully in him as your refuge.

As he begins to give you practical ideas on how to trust in him in a given area, write it down. Thank God for showing you the path. Tell a friend how you plan to trust the Lord practically.

note: I’m currently in the process of writing and compiling some devotional resources. I thought it would be fun to include snapshots of my process, so you’ll be seeing little bits here and there. Enjoy!
