In The Shadow Of God

How beautiful is the Book Of Psalms, it touches the very depths of my heart and soul💗
Psalm 91:1 “He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.”

“Secret place of the Most High”: An intimate place of divine protection. The use of “Most High” for God emphasizes that no threat can ever overpower Him.

“The shadow of the Almighty”: In a land where the sun can be oppressive and dangerous, a “shadow” was understood as a metaphor for care and protection.

I very inadequate to even attempt to explain this most beautiful of Psalms. This more than most Scriptures, brings great hope and promise to those who believe.  Dwelleth means to continually dwell. This then is not speaking of a nominal believer, but of a believer in long standing who is sheltered in the secret place of the Most High. If this was written by Moses, as many believe, he could speak first hand at how wonderful it is to be in such close fellowship with God. Moses was the only one who went near unto God on the mount where he received the Ten Commandments. At one point, God put his hand over Moses and passed by, and Moses saw the back side of God. On two different occasions, Moses was in the very presence of God for 40 days and nights. Moses had a fellowship with God that all true believers would like to have. He had been so close that his head shined brightly when he came down the mountain. No wonder he was known as man of God. David was another that God took supernatural care of. The psalmist could have been either man. This would be my prayer today, O Lord that I might abide in Christ and Christ might abide in me. To fellowship with God on this level would be as heaven itself. Jesus opened the way for us into the Most Holy Place. Where the shadow of God is means that you are very near unto God. To be seated in heavenly places with Christ Jesus is heaven. What a wonderful comfort to be close enough to God for His shadow to cover us❤

The Most Important Ingredient for Rebuke By: John Piper

If you want to rebuke well, you must be honest (Matthew 18:15), you must be bold (Luke 17:3), and you must love (Ephesians 4:25). The recipe for good rebuke involves far more than one ingredient, but one ingredient may be the most important. The apostle Paul says to Timothy, “Reprove, rebuke, and exhort, with complete…
