28 August 2010

After months of Texas summer heat, we finally got a break.  The temperature dipped down to 70 degrees last night and with it a refreshing breeze that cooled the house well below what our air conditioner could manage for the last 3 months.  I felt the need to pull up my covers this morning.  I don’t know about you, but I love to snuggle under a blanket.  The problem is, then I don’t want to leave that place.  It feels so warm and secure.  It is restful and safe.  As I urged myself to get out of bed, I thought about how God covers us.  He is the ultimate security blanket!  When we hide under His covering, we are kept in perfect peace and safety.  No matter what goes on around us, we are secure in Him.

Blessed be the Lord, because He has heard the voice of my supplication.  The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in Him, and I am helped.   Psalm 28:6-7

When I am resting under His covering, I can be assured that He has heard my cries and He already knows how He’s going to work everything out for my good.  Where I am weak, He says He will be my strength.  I used to think it was bad to be weak, but I’m learning that relying on His strength is way better than the best of “my” strength.  My boast is in Him.  He is strength and He is in me, giving me the ability to walk through the most narrow and steep places.  He is my shield, He covers me, He protects and hides me from every poison arrow of the wicked one.  The devil seeks to destroy me, but God is my security and in Him, I can rest.  My heart trusts in Him.  I no longer wonder about His motives.  I know that He is “MY” God, my Abba Father, that loves me with an unchangeable love.  I can trust Him!  He promises to help me in everything.  He never breaks His promises.  I know this because my Abba sent His Son, Yeshua, to die for me and in His blood, the promise of my security and future is written.

Thank You, Yeshua, for Your obedience even unto death.  You have made a way for me to Live!  Thank You, Abba, for Your love, Your protection, Your Strength.   I abide under Your covering and I never have to leave this place!

Shabbat Shalom~
