I am grateful for the rain on this spring day, preparing the soil to support the season’s new growth.
For it is He who delivers you from the snare of the trapper And from the deadly pestilence. Psalm 91:3
Changing minds and hearts is often a slow process. Changing myheart and mind is a slow process. My enemy may lay traps for me in my circumstances, to be sure. But more insidious are the snares laid in my own beliefs that as yet have not been conformed completely to the truth. I thank You Holy Spirit that You are come to guide into all the Truth (John 16:13) and that the Truth is setting me free (John 8:32). What a powerful Agent of Deliverance You are!
He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. – Psalm 91:1
Father, whatever I can imagine, You far surpass. Anything I observe, You created. The loftiest human endeavor, the most beauty I have seen with my eyes, the highest aspects of my character (even after being redeemed by You), the most magnificent melody, these are all fall short of You by an infinite measure. Thank you for revealing as much of Yourself as I am able to take in!
Thank you Lord, that You are our shelter. Thank You that Your blood covers our sin. Thank You that I am hidden in You and that I am protected from the enemy by the great I Am. Majesty and mystery are Yours and Your deep secrets past our finding out. Yet you reveal Your love to us and draw us near.
