Deuteronomy - Loved by God

"About Benjamin he said:
“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.” - Numbers 33:12

I have always loved these words spoken over the tribe of Benjamin. They speak to me of an intimate relationship with God and remind us that God shields us all day long. The last part of the verse creates the image of a parent drawing a child close to their heart (between the shoulders) and allowing them to rest secure.

May God continue to watch over you and may you rest between his shoulders.

Living in Grace
