Today’s Scripture

“He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, ‘He is my refuge and my fortress; my God, in Him I will trust.’ Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the perilous pestilence. He shall cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler. You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, nor of the arrow that flies by day, nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness, nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday. A thousand may fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand; but it shall not come near you.”
Psalm 91:1-7 (NKJV)

“The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters. He restores my soul; He leads me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; my cup runs over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.”
Psalm 23:1-6 (NKJV)

Reflect on the Word

Tragedies, traumas and triggers consistently remind us of how unpredictable and dangerous the world can be. Yet, the Scriptures regularly point us back to God, whose care and compassion invite us to rest under the shadow of His wing and experience the presence and protection of the one who “never slumbers or sleeps” (Ps. 121:4, NLT). Though we experience difficult seasons, we do not have to fear that we face it alone because God is our “ever-present help in trouble” (Ps. 46:1, NIV).

Prayer + Contemplation

  1. Consider and name areas in your life that incite fear, anxiety or worry; write them down. Now, pray and invite God, your Comforter and Protector, into each area.
  2. Pray for those experiencing fear or anxiety, that they would experience peace from God that will surpass their current circumstances.
  3. Lift up those living in imminent danger across the globe because of their faith in Jesus, that they would receive supernatural protection as they continue to proclaim Christ in their context.

Family Moment: Family fortress

Create a family fortress with pillows and blankets. Gather inside and discuss what everyone thinks about when they hear the word “refuge” and “fortress.” Read Psalm 91:1-7 together. What does it mean to say God is our “refuge” and “fortress”? Share examples of God’s protection in your life and from the Bible. Is there something you’re afraid of today? After sharing, invite everyone to speak God’s Word over each fear shared: “God, You’re my refuge. I trust in You, and I’m safe!”
