We…have one special place that is always our own and nobody else’s. It’s the place in our heart where we meet with God, talking to Him in prayer, remembering or reading His Word.

And when we’ve done that, be it in the midst of a crowd or in our own room, we can then get up and do just what Jesus did. Go back to serving those who follow us, in His strength.”

Our daughter Melanie wrote these words. They touched my heart. Perhaps they touch your heart as well.

Wherever you are and whatever time it is, you have one special place that is all our own. The place in your heart where you meet with God.

I welcome you to meet with God right now as you listen to Psalm 91 and then talk with Him in prayer.


Psalm 91

“He that dwelleth 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 will I trust.

Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.

He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.

Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;

Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.

A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.

Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.

Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation;

There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.

For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.

They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.

Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet.

Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.

He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honor him.

With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.”

Psalm 1:1-3 encourages us to meditate on God’s Word day and night. God tells us that when we do, we will be like a tree planted by water. A fruitful tree. A tree that stays fresh and green. Join me on Like a Tree as we meditate on God’s Word together.
