Glorify God • Magnify Him in this World!

Dwelling in God

Scripture
He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High
Will abide in the shadow of the Almighty.
2 I will say to the Lord, “My refuge and my fortress,
My God, in whom I trust!”
Psalms 91:1-2 NASB

Observation
God is a shelter, protection and refuge for all who would come and “abide” in Him. The important thing though, is to go to Him first. You can’t have the benefits or blessings of God on your own terms. Go to where He is, there abide under His shadow, dwell in the shelter that He provides!

God wants all of you. The modern day idea that we can have our cake and eat it too doesn’t apply to God. He is a jealous God. He will not share His glory with anyone or any false god. Neither, does anyone deserve the glory that God deserves.

We are selfish. We think too much of ourselves. We don’t give the glory and credit to God for what He has done in our lives.

Application
When was the last time I truly thanked God? Not just in words, but when did I thank Him by the way I lived? When was I so grateful for what He has done that it showed in my everyday life?

Do I give God the glory? Would others know if I did?

God has given me this great life. I am truly blessed. I know it is because of Him. I need to tell someone about it! I need to let others see the glory of God in me, my words, my actions, my thoughts, my….

Prayer
Lord, thank You for allowing me to be where You are, in Your presence, protected by You. Help me to truly understand that every good gift I have comes from You. Help me to share this with the world around me. I desire to give You the glory!

Peace
Todd
