“If you say, ‘The Lord is my refuge,’ and you make the Most High your dwelling, no harm will overtake you, no disaster will come near your tent.”

– Psalm 91:9,10

Today is Valentine’s Day, a holiday to honor love! It is through the Holy Spirit that we have received the love of God — it is steadfast and unchanging

I want to tell you what was going on when Moses wrote Psalm 91. When God called him up to Mt. Sinai to give him the Ten Commandments, the people down below got really impatient. Even as they saw the Lord’s glory on the mountain, they became angry and decided to spit in God’s face by building a golden calf as an idol and partaking in horrible revelry as they worshiped it. In response to their sin, the Lord told Moses that He would no longer go before them but that He would send an angel instead, lest he become angry again and destroy the whole population. 

During one of their encounters at the Tent of Meeting, after he judged the people, Moses pleaded with the Lord to reconsider His stance and allow His presence to go with them to the Promised Land. Hearing the cry of His friend’s heart, God changed His mind and told Moses that His presence would again go before them and that He would give them rest. Full of relief, it’s likely then that Moses professed the words that would later become Psalm 91.

Friend, like Moses, you have access to the presence of the Lord of all Creation all the time! Since you are in Jesus Christ and He has removed the veil between you and your Heavenly Father, you can speak to the Lord like a friend and enjoy the beauty of being in His protective presence. As Moses did, I encourage you to seek more of the Lord, meet with Him regularly, and ask to see His majesty and glory. When you do, He will show up and accomplish more than you can ask for or imagine!

Prayer


Thank you, Jesus, for the privilege of meeting with you as I would with a friend.

Reflection


Where and when do you go to meet with your friend Jesus?
