Oh Beloved Shelterer of our Hearts ~
How we praise You!
You have been so very faithful!
You've drawn us close to Your loving self and shielded our weary souls in the middle
of the ups and downs that have caught us off guard and left us reeling.
Keep on nesting us in the protective shadow of Your strengthening wings. Give us
the powerful protection we crave even as we emerge to do battle with the enemy, to share
Your Kingdom-spreading love, to live lives worthy of the holy calling You've placed on us.
We glory in that sacred dwelling place, the sweet strong refuge that is Your heart.
Give us strength to live out that treasured truth as we make our way through
the twists and turns in the road that are sure to lie ahead.
And our souls will overflow with gratitude.
By Your Grace ~
He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say of the Lord, 'He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.'
Surely He will save you from the fowler's snare and from the deadly pestilence.
He will cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you will find refuge;
His faithfulness will be your shield and rampart ...
If you make the Most High your dwelling - even the Lord, who is my refuge -
then no harm will befall you, no disaster will come near your tent.
For He will command His angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways;
they will lift you in in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone ...
'Because He loves Me,' says the Lord, ' I will rescue him;
I will protect him, for he acknowledges My name.
He will call upon Me, and I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him.
With long life will I satisfy him and show him my salvation.'
Psalm 91: 1-4, 9-12, 14-16
