In His Care

In my devotion this morning I was reminded of a powerful scripture from Deuteronomy 33:12 - "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." The image that this verse conjures up is on of a loving parent holding us close to their heart - we are the children of God and according to the Bible we 'rest between his shoulders' -which is by His heart. This is awesome news! When I am feeling tired and weary, I can rely on the grace of our Saviour to hold me close to His heart! Thanks the kind of grace I am talking about!I am weak, but you are strong, Lord.
Thanks Jesus.
Living in Grace,

You said it yourself in your post. God is in control of ALL that happens.

There are times when we feel like our father is far away because we can't see Him, but it could just be that we can't see him because our face is pressed up against His chest as he holds us extra tightly during a rough period.

Hang on and you''ll make it!!

God Bless
