Every school kid in America knows to call 911 in a crisis. Not if everything’s well or fine and the day is normal. But in an emergency…when there is tragedy or danger… that’s when you dial 911.

When you are in trouble or need help I’ve got another number for you. Remember…Psalm 91:1… “He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall remain stable and fixed under the shadow of the Almighty.”(TAB)

Is your heart heavy? Discouraged? Sick of the way you are living? Have you been hurt? Are you tempted beyond what you feel you can handle? Then go to Psalm 91:1. Dial it in. God knows and He’s there for you.

But the key is to dwell in the “secret place” of the Most High. That’s your responsibility. To spend time with the Father. Soak in His presence. And then when trials and hard times come…and they will come…you can remain stable and fixed. You can “be still” and “know that He is God”…and that this crisis – this journey – this season – this too shall pass. Don’t fear. Be secure. Where? Under the shadow of the Almighty.

Is all well with your soul? Then God has called you to care. Millions of people are searching right now for God. They need and want His touch. Let God use your hands to dial the number for them. 911. He will answer. Bear their burden with them. Lead them to the secret place. The place of safety and stability. A place where they can, and will, learn to Hunger and Thirst…for His protection…for His presence…

“Blessed are they who hunger and thirst for Righteousness,
for they shall be satisfied.” Matthew 5:6
