Week of October 1 - Day 1

Scripture to Memorize: Psalm 91:1

He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High
    will abide in the shadow of the Almighty.

Day 1 Read: Psalm 91:1

He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High
    will abide in the shadow of the Almighty.

Reflect: What is the promise in this verse? What is the condition?

Consider: “Most High” --The Hebrew word is Elyon; it is often used with other names of God, such as Hebrew El (God) or Yahweh (Lord); it is used to refer to God as the supreme being. “Almighty” --The Hebrew word is El Shaddai; El means God, but the meaning of Shaddai is disputed; traditionally it is translated “Almighty.”[1]

Respond: What is the danger of desiring the promise without the commitment that is attached to the condition?
