Lent - Day 12: Finding Refuge


Throughout the season of Lent a suggested activity for the day as well as a short passage of scripture from the daily lectionary will be posted here that will hopefully help set these 40 days apart. Enjoy.

Activity:
Where is it that you find rest and refuge from the busyness and distractions of the world? Go there. Rest.

Day 12
Scripture:
Psalm 91

[1]   You who live in the shelter of the Most High,
          who abide in the shadow of the Almighty,
[2]   will say to the LORD, "My refuge and my fortress;
          my God, in whom I trust."
[3]   For he will deliver you from the snare of the fowler
          and from the deadly pestilence;
[4]   he will cover you with his pinions,
          and under his wings you will find refuge;
          his faithfulness is a shield and buckler.
[5]   You will not fear the terror of the night,
          or the arrow that flies by day,
[6]   or the pestilence that stalks in darkness,
          or the destruction that wastes at noonday.

[7]   A thousand may fall at your side,
          ten thousand at your right hand,
          but it will not come near you.
[8]   You will only look with your eyes
          and see the punishment of the wicked.

[9]   Because you have made the LORD your refuge,
          the Most High your dwelling place,
[10]  no evil shall befall you,
          no scourge come near your tent.

[11]  For he will command his angels concerning you
          to guard you in all your ways.
[12]  On their hands they will bear you up,
          so that you will not dash your foot against a stone.
[13]  You will tread on the lion and the adder,
          the young lion and the serpent you will trample under foot.

[14]  Those who love me, I will deliver;
          I will protect those who know my name.
[15]  When they call to me, I will answer them;
          I will be with them in trouble,
          I will rescue them and honor them.

[16]  With long life I will satisfy them,
          and show them my salvation.
