Shelter ~ A 31 Day Post (day 15)

31encouragment

A SHELTER is:

something beneath, behind, or within which a person, animal, or thing is protected from storms, missiles, adverse conditions, etc.; refuge.

The word itself can be found in the Bible (ESV version) 19 times.  Five of those are in Psalm.  Four of them speak specifically of the SHELTER we find in the Lord.

For he will hide me in his shelter in the day of trouble; he will conceal me under the cover of his tent; he will lift me high upon a rock. ~ Psalm 27:5

In the cover of your presence you hide them from the plots of men; you store them in your shelter from the strife of tongues. ~ Psalm 31:20

Let me dwell in your tent forever! Let me take refuge under the shelter of your wings! Selah ~ Psalm 61:4

[ My Refuge and My Fortress ] He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty. ~ Psalm 91:1

Over the past year…actually for my entire life…I have found comfort, refuge, SHELTER in God’s Word.  Comfort, refuge, SHELTER in God.  Psalm 94:22 describes the encouragement that I find.

But the Lord has become my stronghold, and my God the rock  of my refuge.

Today I find myself just needing the reminder of His shelter and refuge.  I hope that it encourages you.

Until tomorrow…

Joy to You!
