“Because you have made the Lord, who is my refuge, even the Most High, your dwelling place, no evil shall befall you, nor shall any plague come near your dwelling.”
When we truly make God our dwelling place then we will have total victory. Evil will not be able to overcome us, but we have to truly make God our dwelling place. The word dwelling means to keep the attention directed to and to speak or write insistently about.
Colossians 3:2 – “Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth.”
The problem is that it is difficult to keep our focus on God and make Him our dwelling place. Satan tries to get our focus from God to other things by trying to discourage us and to frustrate us. It is difficult to keep our attention directed to Him but it is not impossible. The Holy Spirit empowers us to be able to keep our focus on God so that we can be in a place of refuge and not have to face unnecessary things in our lives. We just have to make a decision to do things that will keep our focus on God.
It is important that we live a life that is constantly meditating in God’s presence and His word. Choose today to do whatever it takes to keep your focus on God.
