He who 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 fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” Psalm 91:1-2
A few years ago, I was at my sisters’ house when her phone rang and I heard this side of the conversation…
Mom got struck by lightning? IS SHE OKAY?”
My parents were camping about 30 minutes from Lincoln and my Mom had returned to their house to get some supplies. It was on the way back to the campground when a storm started throwing a fit so quickly and unexpectedly, much like a toddler who goes from sweetness to tempter tantrum mode within moments.
She had just exited off of the highway when her Yukon stopped dead in its tracks on the exit ramp. Later the mechanic would inform her that not one, but two bolts of lightning had destructively moved its way through her truck.
When we are living under the protection of God, He will protect us in ways that leave grown men in a mechanics shop scratching their heads with their greasy fingers trying to figure out how the passengers were not hurt or killed.
My Mom’s answer…”I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.”
[ref-yooj] noun 1. shelter or protection from danger, trouble
The Most High…He is worth believing in and trusting.
