1 Chronicles 16:11

Seek the Lord and his strength; seek his presence continually!

Devotional Thoughts

By David Wilkerson

Psalm 91 is many believers' favorite passage of Scripture. What great promises are found here! The entire psalm is a revelation of the delivering, keeping power that comes from living in an attitude of seeking God. The person who lives in this habitation of prayer will have power over all demonic snares, all fear, all sickness and plague — power to prevail and bring forth results in prayer!

But there is a condition for all this. It is found in verse 1: "He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty." "Dwell" means "to live." Do you live in your prayer closet — in the secret place of the Most High? Is it your home at any time of the day?

You may wonder, "Does this mean I need to be shut in with God all the time?" In a manner of speaking, yes! Paul said we are to pray without ceasing. And David said, "Seek the Lord and his strength, seek his face continually" (1 Chronicles 16:11).

Dear saint, in your every waking hour, let your mind be stayed on God. Commune with Him. Yearn after Him at all times. All through the day, in everything, call upon Him in your spirit — and you will know His power and order in your every step! Amen!
