Psalm 91:1 - Dwelling in the Almighty

Psalm 91:1 - Dwelling in the Almighty

Psalm 91:1 (NIV) Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High 
will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. 

Psalm 91:1 (NLT) Those who live in the shelter of the Most High 
will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty.  

Psalm 91:1 (CWR) He who comes to the secret place of the Most 
High will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty. 


   The theme of Psalm 91 is security: God preserves those who 
abide in Him and love Him. These promises are not for people who run 
to the Lord only in times of danger but for those who dwell in His 
presence (v. 1) and make the Holy of Holies their habitation (v. 9)...  
   The abiding life (vv. 1-4) produces the assuring life (vv. 
5-13), the life without fear, which leads to the abounding life (vv. 
14-16), the life of victory and peace. [Chapter by Chapter Bible 
Commentary by Warren Wiersbe] 


   We never have to be lonely, because God is always present 
with us. To dwell in his shelter is to maintain conscious connection 
with him throughout the day. We can maintain it by offering short 
prayers, such as the name of Jesus or You are my refuge or I trust you, 
Lord. We can also schedule short breaks in the day to meditate on him 
- his goodness, his love, his faithfulness.  
   The psalmist says to God, "I am always with you; you hold me 
by my right hand. You guide me with your counsel, and afterward you 
will take me into glory" (Psalm 73:23, 24). God is always, always 
there, close enough to hold us by the hand, eager to guide us, 
promising to take us into glory. How amazing it is that right now you are 
with him. 
   God is our refuge and fortress, the Friend who always stands 
with us, and he longs for us to seek his presence. [The Daniel Plan

   Expect to encounter adversity in your life, remembering that 
you live in a deeply fallen world. Stop trying to find a way that 
circumvents difficulties. The main problem with an easy life is that it 
masks your need for Me. When you became a Christian, I infused My very 
Life into you, empowering you to live on a supernatural plane by 
depending on Me.  
   Anticipate coming face-to-face with impossibilities: 
situations totally beyond your ability to handle. This awareness of your 
inadequacy is not something you should try to evade. It is precisely where 
I want you-the best place to encounter Me in My Glory and Power. 
When you see armies of problems marching toward you, cry out to Me! 
Allow Me to fight for you. Watch Me working on your behalf, as you 
rest in the shadow of My Almighty Presence. (Rev. 19:1; Psa. 91:1) 
[Jesus Calling by Sarah Young] 

Come to Me, and rest in My loving Presence. You know that this 
day will bring difficulties, and you are trying to think your way 
through those trials. As you anticipate what is ahead of you, you forget 
that I am with you - now and always. Rehearsing your troubles results 
in experiencing them many times, whereas you are meant to go 
through them only when they actually occur. Do not multiply your 
suffering in this way! Instead, come to Me, and relax in My Peace. I will 
strengthen you and prepare you for this day, transforming your fear into 
confident trust. (Mat. 11:28-30; Jos. 1:5, 9) [Jesus Calling by Sarah 

   Come to Me and rest. I am all about you, to bless and 
restore. Breathe Me in with each breath. The way just ahead of you is 
very steep. Slow down and cling tightly to My hand. I am teaching you 
a difficult lesson, learned only by hardship. 
   Lift up empty hands of faith to receive My precious Presence. 
Light, Life, Joy, and Peace flow freely through this gift. When your 
focus turns away from Me, you grasp for other things. You drop the 
glowing gift of My Presence as you reach for lifeless ashes. Return to 
Me; regain My Presence. (Mat. 11:28-29; 1 Tim. 2:8) [Jesus Calling 
by Sarah Young] 

I am the resurrection and the life; all lasting Life emanates 
from Me. People search for life in many wrong ways: chasing after 
fleeting pleasures, accumulating possessions and wealth, trying to deny 
the inevitable effects of aging. Meanwhile, I freely offer abundant 
Life to everyone who turns toward Me. As you come to Me and take My 
yoke upon you, I fill you with My very Life. This is how I choose to 
live in the world and accomplish My purposes. This is also how I 
bless you with Joy unspeakable and full of Glory. The Joy is Mine, and 
the Glory is Mine; but I bestow them on you as you live in My 
Presence, inviting Me to live fully in you. (John 11:25; Mat. 11:28, 29; 
1Pe. 1:8, 9) [Jesus Calling by Sarah Young] 


With God as your moral anchor, you can stop worrying and start 
living. He wants to be your refuge and your fortress! [It Is Written]
