HERE IN YOU I FIND SHELTER
(Sinking Deep)

Just ask Bear Grylls — no matter what your race, status, or culture, every human being has 3 basic survival needs:

Food.
Water.
Shelter.

The dictionary defines a shelter as a place giving protection from bad weather or danger. It implies that it is a place large enough and strong enough to protect us from harm during dangerous conditions.

Psalm 91 says, “Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, ‘He is my refuge and my strength, my God, in whom I trust.” NIV

The Psalmist goes on to list a number of frightening events that he is facing – traps, disease, terrors at night, battles, plagues and warfare. We know that storms in life can come unexpectedly but God promises that if we love, acknowledge and call on Him; He will be our shelter!

Let’s be honest – God doesn’t promise us an easy, storm-free life. He promises to be with us through the trials… to be our shelter. We are never alone, He has overcome and with Him we can withstand the storm.

In Him we find our refuge — the safest place we could ever be.
