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)”. Isaiah 4:5 (AMPC)
Have you ever taken refuge in the midst of a strong wind or driving rain, under an awning perhaps, or a small nook or doorway you could shelter in? It is nice to step out of the storm and find a place to rest until the blustering weather has passed.
Did you know that God wants to be that for you always? A safe place to hide; a shelter from the storms; a continual covering and protection for you—whenever you need it and wherever you go. And not just any kind of covering—but the richest, sweetest, and most secure place there could be. It is standing in the substance of Who He is, cherished one—a dwelling of divine love and defense where you are covered always, every day, every step of the way.
In the heat of the noonday sun, or the darkness of the midnight sky, over every detail of your life—past, present, and future, He is there! Step out of the rain, beloved, however it is falling today, and step into His arms of comfort and care.
He has you shielded, under the canopy of His unconditional love, and He is waiting for you there!
Jesus, I have run to so many places in my life—to escape the pain, to get out of the bitter rains of rejection—to find what felt like comfort, but left me empty once again.
I have tried to cover my heart Lord, to keep it safe, but in the end, only left myself even more exposed.
Today Lord, I choose to place myself safely and securely, fully and completely, in You!
Here I know I will find shelter from the storms—in fact I know that one word from You, and those same storms will cease!
So, speak Your word over my life today precious Jesus, I pray! Place Your glory over me as a canopy of love, dearest Father, as You so kindly and generously do. Hover over every area of my life, Holy Spirit, and let Your brilliance and glory shine through!
Come now blessed Trinity and create something wonderful and new! All the glory, honour, and praise, belongs to You!
