hope in God
In HIS Presence


Read: Psalm 91:1-16


Meditation verse: “I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress; my God, in Him I will trust.” (Psalm 91:2)


We are currently living in difficult times. There is currently so much brokenness, decay, lawlessness, and wickedness. The world is currently going through a lot of distress. Insecurity, terrorism, food crisis, inflation, high cost of living and of course the recent earthquakes in Turkey and Syria that claimed thousands of lives. 

When the apostle Paul wrote to Timothy about difficult times, he charged Timothy with the following words:

But you must continue in the things which you have learned and been assured of, knowing from whom you have learned them, and that from childhood you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.


What does this say to us? Amid the current hopelessness, brokenness and decay, stability can only be found in Jesus Christ and in His word. We must look to Him as our anchor and hope. Here’s His promise to you:  “he shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him and honour him. With long life I will satisfy him and show him My salvation.” (Psalm 91:15-16)


IN HIS PRESENCE is written by Oke Chinye.
Have you asked Jesus Christ to come into your heart?

He says in Mathew 11:28, “come unto me all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” He longs to give you rest."

Would you like to do so now? Here’s a prayer you can say:
Dear Jesus, I believe that You died to save me from all my sins. Today, I invite you into my heart and I accept you as my Lord and Saviour. Please forgive all my sins and help me to live my life for You.
