And the Lord will create over the whole site, over every dwelling place of Mount Zion and over her assemblies, a cloud and smoke by day and the shining of a flaming fire by night; for over all the glory shall be a canopy (a defense of divine love and protection). And there shall be a pavilion for shade in the daytime from the heat, and for a place of refuge and a shelter from storm and from rain”. Isaiah 4:5,6 (AMPC)
There are all kinds of seasons in life, some of joy and blessings we pray will never end, others of sadness and sorrow that seem to come to quickly, and remain far too long, but God is with you, and will be faithful beloved, in them all. When the heat feels too much to bear, He is your shelter and your shade. When the storms rush in, pounding against the very foundation of all you know, He is your unmovable Rock, stable and secure. When it rains, His umbrella of love protects you, and sets your feet upon dry and solid ground.
Yes, seasons come cherished one, and seasons go, but God’s steadfast love and faithful care, remains. Swirling circumstances can threaten your sense of security, taking the world as you knew it from right side up, to upside down. Yet your God of Peace, will create a dwelling place for you in the midst of it all. He will create a shelter of divine love and defense, a place of refuge and retreat; a place to rest awhile till the storms of life have ceased.
Hang on, beauty, to the God Who is greater than swirling circumstances and changing seasons. You can dwell richly in Him as your protection and your peace for He is your storm free place to abide in, to rest, and to belong!
Dear Jesus, You came to dwell amoung us, to be our Shelter and our Shade. To protect us from the storms of life as we tuck ourselves up in Your radiant love.
You are the One Who calms the seas with one word for You are the very Word of God—a paradise of protection and our perfect peace.
I am not exposed Lord; I am not alone. No matter how it feels, I declare this truth—I am sheltered, safe, and protected in You.
Go ahead of me Lord, light the path and show me the way. I rest in Your divine love. Keep Me in all of Your ways Lord. I hide myself and my entire life, in You!
