He shall cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you shall refuge Psalm 91:4
Like a mother hen covers her chicks with her wings to love and protect them, God does the same for you. There is refuge under the cover of God's love. You must trust this truth.
If you have not yet purchased a copy of "God Calling" by A.J. Russell (and the two women who wrote the messages then edited by Russell) I highly recommend you spring for the few dollars to purchase this devotional. Even if just for today's message alone.
It's all about trust. Think about how much sooner the Israelites would have been living in their Promised Land if they had only trusted the Lord. Instead their doubts and fears drove them to the wilderness for forty years.
Jesus died so that our sin and doubt and worry would be left on the cross.
I pray you believe this with your whole heart. Trust is the one thing that has gotten me through the trials and tribulations of life in this fallen world. Even when I'm in a season of darkness, I trust the light is on the horizon.
That light is Jesus.
Have a great day. For those living in the Pacific Northwest, we have seen the light! We have a big orange ball in our sky in February! The sun has been out for several days in all its glory and I'm so thankful for the vitamin D!
God Bless Your Heart,
To purchase a copy of "God Calling" edited by AJ Russell, check out www.amazon.com where you can find many different versions of this great tool for devotional study. Written in 1932, it still speaks clearly to my life today in 2010. God's Word is alive and active and sharper than a double edged sword!
