Strength Today

As for you, the one who lives in the shelter of the sovereign One, and resides in the protective shadow of the mighty king    [Ps 91:1]

They who on the Lord rely,

Safely dwell though danger’s nigh;

Lo! His sheltering wings are spread

O’er each faithful servant’s head.

When they wake, or when they sleep,

Angel guards their vigils keep;

Death and danger may be near,

Faith and love have nought to fear.


“There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling,” is a promise to the fullest extent verified in the case of all “who dwell in the secret place of the Most High.” To them sorrows are not “evils,” sicknesses are not “plagues;” the shadow of the Almighty extending far around those who abide under it, alters the character of all things which come within its influence.


It is faith’s work to claim and challenge loving-kindness out of all the roughest strokes of God.
