He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. Psalm 91:1
When I was a young child I was terrified of electrical storms. Hiding my head gave me a mild sense of comfort and protection, but the fear remained, lurking, ready to scream, “Boo!” at the next clap of thunder.
Time and experience has drained some of that fear. Still, while others may watch and marvel at the beauty and thrill of the fearsome storm, I still prefer the vague protection of my home. Yes, I know that a good thunderstorm “clears the air.” Yes, I know that taking reasonable precautions are valuable. Yet that lingering fear from childhood still makes it presence whenever the rolling thunder precedes the gathering storm.
Psalm 91 tells us that those who live close to God have a shelter. Unlike our earthly dwellings that provide at best, only a measure of protection, God’s shelter is perfect, constant and invincible. We can trust fully in its strength, rely on its stability, and never doubt that it’s the best solution for our worries and fears.
