The Scripture in my journal from a year ago today.....

Where there are many counselors, there is safety. Where there is no counsel, people fall. Proverbs 11:14

The wicked man does deceptive work, but he who sows righteousness will have a sure reward. Proverbs 11:18

As righteousness leads to life, so he who pursues evil pursues his own death.  Proverbs 11:19

Those who are dominated by the sinful nature think about sinful things, but those who are controlled by the Holy Spirit think about things that please the Spirit. So letting your sinful nature control your mind leads to death. But letting the Spirit control your mind leads to life and peace. For the sinful nature is always hostile to God. It never did obey God’s laws, and it never will. That’s why those who are still under the control of their sinful nature can never please God.
But you are not controlled by your sinful nature. You are controlled by the Spirit if you have the Spirit of God living in you. (And remember that those who do not have the Spirit of Christ living in them do not belong to him at all.)
And the Holy Spirit helps us in our weakness. For example, we don’t know what God wants us to pray for. But the Holy Spirit prays for us with groanings that cannot be expressed in words. 27 And the Father who knows all hearts knows what the Spirit is saying, for the Spirit pleads for us believers in harmony with God’s own will. 28 And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.

Romans 8

For our struggle is not against flesh and blood but against the rulers, authorities, powers of darkness, and against the spiritual forces in the heavenly realms. Eph 6:12

And the beloved Psalm 91:
 With all the definitions included it reads:

He who dwells (remains, sits, abides) in the shelter (the secret place, covering, protection, away from the slanderous tongue) of the Most High, shall abide under the shadow (the shack of protection) of the Almighty (THE MOST POWERFUL ONE). I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge (shelter from rain, falsehood, storm, or danger) and my fortress (stronghold); My God (ruler, judge, the TRUE GOD) in whom I trust (having confidence in, being bold or secure.) Surely He shall deliverer (snatch away, deliverer, rescue, save, strip, plunder, tear oneself away, RECOVER, deliverer from sin or guilt, to be plucked out) me from the snare (calamities, plots, source or agent of calamity) of the fowler (the bait layer) and from the perilous (bad desire, chasm of engulfing ruin, destruction and calamity) pestilence (plague, A widespread affliction or calamity, especially one seen as divine retribution- supernatural punishment of a person, a group of people, or all humanity by a deity in response to something done.)
