My name is Evan Cofer, and I am a friend of God.
I who dwell in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of The Almighty. I will say to The Lord, "My refuge and my fortress, My God, in whom I trust!" For it is He who delivers me from the snare of the trapper and from the deadly pestilence. He will cover me with His pinions, and under His wings I may seek refuge; His faithfulness is a shield and bulwark. I will not be afraid of the terror by night, or of the arrow that flies by day; of the pestilence that stalks in darkness, or of the destruction that lays waste at noon. A thousand may fall at my side and ten thousand at my right hand, but it shall not approach me. I will only look on with my eyes and see the recompense of the wicked. For I have my the LORD, my refuge, even the Most High, my dwelling place. No evil will befall me, nor will any plague come near my tent. For He will give His angels charge concerning me, to guard me in all my ways. They will bear me up in their hands, that I not strike my foot against a stone. I will tread upon the lion and cobra, the young lion and the serpent I will trample down. "Because Evan has loved Me, therefore I will deliver him; I will set him securely on high, because he has known My name. Evan will call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will rescue him and honor him. With a long life I will satisfy Evan and let him see My salvation."
I hope this speaks into your life today. And I pray that you have the courage and the strength to understand and BELIEVE in the promises of God, and that your name fits in Psalm 91 as well as mine :)
