Tozer: facing the new year

Wednesday, December 30, 2015
He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High
    will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
A thousand may fall at your side,
    ten thousand at your right hand,
    but it will not come near you.
    —Psalm 91:1,7 (NIV)
    Of all persons the Christian should be best prepared for whatever the New Year brings. He has dealt with life at its source. In Christ he has disposed of a thousand enemies that other men must face alone and unprepared. He can face his tomorrow cheerful and unafraid because yesterday he turned his feet into the ways of peace and today he lives in God. The man who has made God his dwelling place will always have a safe habitation.
    ... A. W. Tozer (1897-1963), The Warfare of the Spirit, Camp Hill, PA: Christian Publications, 1993, p. 148 (see the book)
    See also Ps. 91:1-7; 23:4-6; 27:4; 37:7; 84:4
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, in You I am safe.
