God's 9/11: Who's Your Refuge and Fortress?!
As we think about, pray for the families of, and recognize those killed on September 11, 2001, in New York City, Washington, D.C. and Shanksville, PA; and as we face the apparent uncertainties and challenges of our times, including the continued war in Iraq, the global war on terrorism, and the threat of nuclear proliferation in North Korea and Iran, may we NOT forget or take lightly the assurances of God's 9 1 1, found in Psalm 91:1,
He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty. (v.2 I will say to the Lord, “My refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.”)
May we always remember, and take joy and confidence in the fact that (if you are a chosen, blood-bought child of the King) He, Jesus Christ, is our refuge and our fortress - not the U.S. government, not your Smith & Wesson or Remington, not your neighborhood watch posse, not your 401K or your position or status in the community or church! It is HE who has overcome the world; and He is in us, and He is greater than he that is in the world! (I John 4:4)
So dwell in Him, and abide in His shadow - the Almighty, Sovereign God of the Universe! Amen? Amen!
Read all of Psalm 91.
