Dwelling and resting

Re: Verse reading–Psalm 91 (day six)  “He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty”  (vs 1)  “Prone to wander, Lord I feel it.” says a familiar hymn. (Come Thou Fount)  Sorry to say it, but the author is not alone.  I feel the irritating tendency to wander away from the Lord.  Do you?  One day, I am close to Christ.   The next, I walk away, in conscious disobedience or unconscious distraction.  Arrrgh!  It costs me God’s protection and blessing.  Like Sampson, people loved by God must stay with Him or experience discipline.  The God-given condition for our protection is that we remain/dwell/abide in Him.  “If you remain in my word, and my words remain in you, you shall ask whatever you wish and it will be done for you.”  God’s best gifts are not for those who occasionally visit the Father’s house.  Those who dwell in Him find rest in Him.
