Let the beloved of the Lord rest secure in Him, for He shields him all day long, and the one the Lord loves rests between His shoulders. Deuteronomy 33:12
Today did not start well.
I awoke congested and feeling like I had not slept at all. I began work to find a serious glitch has occurs with one of the main programs I use daily. Hubby may be having a long term IV put in today and my eldest is recovering from an allergic reaction to a new food source. My son is feeling bad for accidentally sitting on my laptop and cracking the screen.
In short, a day most of us would prefer to stay in bed or have a restart button to push for a skip over.
Last night, I was reminded of this verse above.
And it struck me after worship time this morning that God gave me that verse last night to remind me of the following truths:
1. I am His Beloved.
No matter how I feel, God pursued and wooed me.
2. He is always shielding me.
Always. Just because I can’t see Him or His angels doing so, doesn’t change this truth!
3. GOD loves me.
Even when I am cranky, miserable, acting sinfully and unlovely, I am the one He loves!
4. He is my source of rest.
No matter what is happening, or what I am facing.
5. He is carrying me close.
I am resting on His shoulders. And in order to stay there…
6. He is holding on to me.
He never lets us go, those whom He loves. He has me safely in His grip.
7. God is leading the way as I rest on Him.
I can place my hope that I am headed in the right direction when He is guiding my every step.
If you too needed to be reminded of these truths, join me in praying for a stronger sense of His Presence to rest upon you today, as we learn to rest on His shoulders.
