God has promised to be your Protector, your Defender, your Strength, your Shelter and so much more. Even when the storms of life come against you, as long as you are dwelling in Him, you dwell in safety and trustâ€”nothing can take away your peace and joy. What does it mean to dwell in Him?
One of the definitions of the word â€œdwellâ€ means to keep your attention directed toward something. The more you keep your attention directed toward God, the more you will know Him, and the more confidence you will have in Him.
When you focus your heart and mind on the Word of God, and declare His promises over your life, you are dwelling in Him. When you lift your voice in worship and give Him glory and honour, you are dwelling in Him. When you spend time meditating on Him and connecting with Him through prayer, you are dwelling in Him.
Today, are you facing a difficult situation? Give your attention to the Father. Do you need His peace and protection? Focus your heart and mind on Him. As you dwell on Him, you will see His goodness, and youâ€™ll live in peace and victory all the days of your life!
“In peace I will both lie down and sleep, for You, Lord, alone make me dwell in safety and confident trust.”(Psalm 4:8, AMPC)
Pray With Me
Yahweh, thank You for Your promise of peace and safety in my life. Father, I will give You my attention and focus. God, help me to dwell on You. Have Your way in me, and let everything I do bring glory to You, in Jesusâ€™ Name! Amen.
