Psalm 91 part 1 - June 14, 2015

If you remember nothing else from this sermon except for this verse, then you will have gained much indeed. 

We are called to dwell. This means taking up a permanent place, settling down; it’s even used for marriage at times. 

The place we are to dwell is the shelter of the Most High. “Shelter” here means a hiding place, a refuge

Those who dwell in the shelter of the Most High will abide there. It will be a place of permanent rest, a haven, safe harbor against the violent storms of life. 

It is permanent because it is the shadow of the Almighty. The thing about being in a shadow is that something is between you and the sun. To be in God’s shadow means that God is directly between you and the threats of the world.
