“I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.” Psalm 91:2
As we come to you and dwell in the refuge of your Word and the Way you have given us,
–you shield us from wrong thoughts, wrong desires and wrong perspectives.
–You shield us from what is distracting, destructive and demanding.
–You shield us from what is caustic, competitive and cynical. –You shield us from what is foolish, selfish and unwise.
Truly, Lord God, my Triune King, Eternal Ruler, Owner of everything, you are our hope:
our only hope;
and entirely adequate hope.
And your Word gives us what we need to nurture and sustain this hope.
Praise be you, the God of hope who desires to fill us with all joy and peace, if we will only trust in you, so that our lives may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit (Rom. 15:13).
Prayer: “Yes, Lord, may the fragrance of your hope flow out of my life throughout the day and edify all those around me!
May praise for the Eternal, Great, Good and Glorious God be the keynote of my life, of my day.
Honor be to you, the God of Hope, the God of Protection, the God of Refuge, the God who is our shield! Amen.”
