NCFI Cares: My Shelter, the Sovereign One

Psalm 91:9-10 For you have taken refuge in the Lord, my shelter, the sovereign One. No
harm will overtake you; no illness will come near your home.

 Our testimony is more than a way to bring the lost into the saving grace of Christ.
It is also more than our “salvation” story. It is a constantly changing
expression of how the Lord is working in our lives. Our testimony is a continuous
narrative of our faith journey filled with valleys of sadness and peaks of joys.
These times can be Godly intercessions for us personally and professionally,
and may also include family, colleagues and/or patients. Whether our family is
protected from an accident, our patients are healed from an illness and/or a
colleague finds cancer in the early stages. The Lord’s will intersecting in our
day-to-day events is opportunities to share. When we tell others the mighty
deeds of the Almighty we build up their faith and encourage their spiritual
growth (Psalm 145:4; 1 Cor. 1:4).
I encourage you to take time and reflect on a recent time the Lord has strengthened and/or encouraged you as a Christian nurse. Pray for the opportunity to share with a colleague how
“my shelter, the Sovereign One” worked in your nursing practice. Like the
writer of the 91st Psalm, we can use our life journey of living in
the refuge of the Lord as a teaching tool for our patients and colleagues.
