Security And Rest In The Almighty

"Security And Rest In The Almighty"
By Zach Wood
Psalm 91:1-2
Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.  I will say of the Lord, "He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust."

There was a song written many years ago by the Christian rock band Skillet called "Rest".  I would like to share the words of the chorus with you:

And I rest in the shelter of Your love
And I rest in the wonder of Your Grace
And I rest in the shelter of Your love
And I rest in the wonder of You

When I listen to this song, it reminds me of the peace and security I can find in my Savior, Jesus Christ.  It is one of their slow songs and is a great worship song.  I would encourage you to look up the song online and listen to it.  I am sure it will be a blessing to you as well.

When we come to the shelter of the Most High, He promises to give us a place of rest.  When we are resting in the shadow of His Wings, He will protect us and give us rest.  The words in this passage are so very powerful in describing the ultimate security, peace and rest we find when we abide in Christ and walk with Him.  There is no greater source of comfort and strength.  When we are weary, He invites us to come to Him and find peace and rest.  He is truly our refuge and fortress. 

If you need rest for your weary soul, then please take the time to come before your Savior and just rest in His presence and Holiness.  Just take the time to bask in the wonder of His Love.  He loves when we come to Him and take in all what He offers.  There is no other place where we can find eternal security.  He is our true source of rest, security and shelter. 

Rest in the shelter of His Love and the wonder of His Grace.
