Live In His Shelter!

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

Most of the time, it is extremely difficult to find peace and “shelter” where we work! Satan loves to use our workplaces to attack us. The stress of our jobs often keeps us on edge and ready to give in to our weaknesses. The people we work with, or associate with, try to manipulate us by leading us astray. Sometimes the competition within the workplace is so severe, we do whatever is necessary to get “ahead”. We lie, cheat, or steal to make ourselves look better to our bosses, our co-workers, or to our customers.

In order to live in the Lord’s “shelter” we need to focus our lives on Him. We need to make a conscious effort to spend time every day in His presence. When we live our lives according to His word, He protects us from falling into many of the traps that Satan has prepared for us. The Holy Spirit guides our thoughts and actions and helps us make appropriate decisions. We are able to “rest” in the Almighty, knowing that He is always near no matter where life leads us.

Enjoy your Wednesday, “Working for Christ”!
