“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.””Psalm 91:1-2 NIV
The Lord is our refuge and our fortress. The secret place of the Most High is the Lord’s presence. King David understood the importance of God’s presence. He understood everything he had in his life and every victory were from the hand of the Lord.
Today we live in a world that seems very dark and very chaotic. There is no greater time in history that we must become a people of His presence. When we come together our sole aim should be to draw near and spend time in the Lord’s presence.
As we draw near, He will draw near to us. For far too long the church has been focused on programs and entertainment. We have not been concerned about honoring the Lord or spending time in His presence. But it is in His presence that restoration, healing, deiverance, freedom, salvation, grace, and mercy are found. What we have with Jesus is a living relationship with the one who spoke all things into existence. He simply desires for us to draw near and fall deeply in love with Him.
