Psalm 91:9-10, 90:1 NIV 2011
If you say, “The Lord is my refuge,” and you make the Most High your dwelling, no harm will overtake you, no disaster will come near your tent.
Lord, you have been our dwelling place throughout all generations.
God is a refuge for His people. Deuteronomy 33:27, “The eternal God is your refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms. He will drive out your enemies before you, saying, ‘Destroy them!’” God’s everlasting arms surround His people keeping disaster at bay. Genesis 21:33, “Abraham planted a tamarisk tree in Beersheba, and there he called on the name of the Lord, the Eternal God.” Paul wrote to the Ephesians how they were a dwelling place for the Holy Spirit. Ephesians 2:22, “And in him you too are being built together to become a dwelling in which God lives by his Spirit.” God’s Spirit dwells within His faithful.
When I’m drawn to someone new it’s always the Holy Spirit that guides me toward him or her. Smiling I’m still amazed. It usually takes a few minutes before we realize we are both believers. I love Paul’s words about being built together because each of us was built together by God to house the Holy Spirit. In a dark room, two of us can light up that room. Moses’ prayer in Psalm 90 reminds me God is still the same today. God’s Spirit dwells within me.
How does God’s Spirit guide us daily?
His Spirit’s dwelling within us,
