Are You Resting in the Shadow of the Almighty or Hiding Under the Cloak of Religiousity?

false religiousity

Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. (Psalm 91: 1)

Live as free people, but do not use your freedom as a cover-up for evil; live as God’s slaves. (1 Peter 2:16)

There’s a need to evaluate ourselves on the basis of the Bible verses shared above.

I have known a lot of people who have mastered religiousity but neglected the most important element of the Christian belief, which is LOVE.

These ‘religious’ people have the skills and capability to quote scriptures on any situation of life but fail to manifest the true meaning of loving God above all else and loving one’s neighbour as they love themselves.

People who are hiding under the cloak of religiousity to exact their evil ways are more dangerous than those who are upfront with their evil intent.

There are some Christians who are good in quoting Bible verses out of context and delight in using them to “arm twist” people who are also religious but vulnerable.

They expect people to treat them more highly than they think because they are smart in Biblical knowledge, zealousness in prayer, pastor-like behaviour but they fail in showing the fruit of the real Christ disciple, primarily humility.

To paraphrase what the Psalmist said in Psalm 91:1, one is resting in the shadow of the Almighty if you are dwelling in the shelter of the Most High.

Let us not hide under the cloak of religiousity and pretend to follow and serve God, when in fact we are serving our own personal agenda and gain.

Let us rest in the shadow of the Almighty and be honest and just in our dealings with one another, deeply and sincerely aware that in God’s shelter, nothing is hidden.

Michael Johnstone

Michael is married with 4 adult children. He has been walking with the Lord for 33 years now.

He gave his life to the Lord Jesus at the Timaru New Life Centre where he was set free from a life of drug and alcohol addiction.

He has been a businessman in the forest industry as a logging contractor for 39 years.

Over the years he has had the privilege of praying for and seeing many people in the name of Jesus, being set free from all types of bondage that have stopped them from walking freely with the Lord.

God has given Michael the gifts of the prophetic and teaching ministries, among others, and has opened doors for these gifts to be used both here in New Zealand and overseas.
