Day 51 | Precious Faniyi

If you make the Lord your refuge,
    if you make the Most High your shelter,
10 no evil will conquer you;
    no plague will come near your home.
11 For he will order his angels
    to protect you wherever you go.
12 They will hold you up with their hands
    so you won’t even hurt your foot on a stone.
13 You will trample upon lions and cobras;
    you will crush fierce lions and serpents under your feet!

14 The Lord says, “I will rescue those who love me.
    I will protect those who trust in my name.
15 When they call on me, I will answer;
    I will be with them in trouble.
    I will rescue and honor them.
16 I will reward them with a long life
    and give them my salvation.”

Psalms 90 and 91 reminds us that life is short and we need to live it wisely. If we live according to the word of God, our reward will be waiting for us in heaven. The wicked will also reap what they have sown in the afterlife. We need to model our lives to imitate Jesus Christ, loving God first, then our neighbors and even our enemies. God knows everything about each and every one of us, he has plans that he wants us to carry out. When he needs us, we need to beckon his call. This doesn’t mean we have to always be perfect because God understands that we’re imperfect creatures and we are going to make mistakes. He is our merciful savior and he will forgive us of all our iniquities if we come to his presence and repent wholeheartedly. With God’s wisdom and guidance, we can live extremely fulfilling lives and eventually reign with our Heavenly Father.
