A New Day

I went to bed feeling discouraged and defeated. Life in general has just been overwhelming lately...I'm not complaining, just being honest.  So this morning I woke up to a text of encouragement from a sweet friend and then when I opened my Bible (intending to turn to Romans 5 - a passage recommended by my texting friend) it fell open to Psalm 91. I decided to read that first and BOY was I blessed! I love how God speaks so personally to each one of us. I've read Psalm 91 over and over in the past and it has always been a great passage, but today it was a note of encouragement straight from my God's heart to my own.  I hope you'll take the time to read may not speak to you today like it did to me, but maybe God will put someone on your heart that needs to hear those words as I did....

Psalm 91 (NKJV)
He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide in 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 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. Only with your eyes shall you look, and see the reward of the wicked.   Because you have made the Lord, who is my refuge, even the Most High, your dwelling place, no evil shall befall you, nor shall any plague come near your dwelling; for He shall give His angels charge over you, to keep you in all your ways. In their hands they shall bear you up, lest you dash your foot against a stone. You shall tread upon the lion and the cobra, the young lion and the serpent you shall trample underfoot.  Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him; I will set him on high, because he has 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 I will satisfy him, and show him My salvation.

Psalm 91

I hope this spoke peace to your soul as it did to mine. Have a great day today and remember that His mercies are new every morning! :)
