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 on the State Department of Banking and Finance, in Tallahassee, Florida, I had to travel alone, weekly, for over 6 months, from my home in Orlando to the office. A few times, when the working week was short due to a holiday, I brought my wife with me. Despite, it was a lonely 4‑hour drive (250 miles/450 km) on the FL-Turnpike, to I‑75 and then, at I‑10, which, at the time, was a deserted route where there was almost no place to stop, to get a snack or even to fill the car tank with gas.
On my next consulting assignment to a large international corporation based in Lakeland, FL, I started commuting about 72 miles, one way, for over 2 years. Although much closer, it was another lonely drive.
During all those lonely driving trips, which exceeded 66,000 miles, you would not find a wallet, sunglasses, pen, or even a paperclip on the passenger’s seat. Rather, I would keep my personal belongings in the car console or my briefcase on a reaching distance, resting on the floor behind the passenger’s seat. The front seat has been 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 an honored place. Today, when driving alone, that’s still my habit.
Are you making room for Him today?
