If you say, “The Lord is my refuge,” and you make the Most High your dwelling,
no harm will overtake you, no disaster will come near your tent. Psalm 91:9-10
During the nineties, while consulting to the Florida Department of Banking and Finance, at the Capital, Tallahassee, I had to travel over 6 months, on a weekly basis, from my home in Orlando to the office, most of which alone. A few times, when the work week was short due to a holiday I had my wife with me. It was a lonely 4-hour drive (250 miles/450 km) on the FL-Turnpike, to I-75 and then, a deserted drive at I-10 where at the time there was almost no place to stop, get a snack or even get some gas. After that period, I started commuting about 72 miles one way, for over 2 years during another consulting assignment to a large international corporation based in Lakeland, FL. During all those lonely trips of over 66,000 miles you would not find a wallet, a sunglasses, a pen or even a paperclip on the passenger’s seat. Rather, I would keep my personal belongings in the car console or in my briefcase on a reaching distance resting on the floor behind the passenger’s seat. The front seat was always reserved and taken by the angel of the Lord. The psalmist declares: “For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways” Psalm 91:11 (NIV). Thus, I had to give him room. Today, when driving alone, that’s still my practice. Have you made room for Him today?
