Day 1: November 14, 2021
Read: One thing have I asked of the Lord, that will I seek after: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord and to inquire in his temple. – Psalm 27:4
Respond: Lord, I desire to dwell with You. You are the One my heart seeks after. You are my strong shelter in times of trouble, danger and stress. You are a Rock of Refuge, my fortress, my God in whom I trust. You save. You deliver. You protect and defend.
Read: He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say to the Lord, “My refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” – Psalm 91:1-2
Respond: God Most High, You are my hiding place, my shelter, and my fortress, the One I come to for everything. My heart rests in You. You are my Provider. I rest beneath the shadow of Your wings. Anxiety melts away as I lean back into Your loving arms and depend on You. Most High God, I trust You, because You are trustworthy and true.
Read: The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters. He restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. – Psalm 23:1-3
Respond: You are the Good Shepherd who guides and protects. You uphold and defend. You restore my soul and lead me down right paths. I want for nothing. You are more than enough. As You Shepherd me through this day my heart rejoices, and my soul is at peace. Your name and renown is the desire of my heart. You are my safe place in the morning as I wake and at night as I sleep.
Rejoice in the God who loves you today! Praise Him throughout your day for His protection, shelter, and guidance, His wisdom, His kindness and His goodness. Most of all praise Him for His love.
