He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
What does it mean to rest in the shadow of the Almighty? As I pondered over this verse this morning, chewed on it while taking my morning walk and drinking in the beauty of the early day, I also wrestled with the concept. Does this mean that if I don’t dwell in the shelter of God – I won’t find rest? Yes…and no. Mostly yes.
Real rest comes from feeling safe. Knowing that no matter what you do, good or bad – or what others have done to you – you can always comes back and rest under his great arms of love. Just fall in. Feel completely loved. No matter what.
I believe if it’s safety you’re looking for – you’ve come to the right place. This song is one I can’t shake since the first time I heard it – I pray it will be a blessing to you today.
My canyon of transgressions,
It echoes through my troubled mind
Reminding me of desperation,
And of the peace I long to find
I wrestle with this world around me,
I forge the chains that hold me down
But it was your love, a dead world’s pardon
You gave it all, you gave for me
I’m falling into your love overwhelming,
I’m falling into your grace
I’m falling in where my heart knows no wrong
I’m falling into you
To you my life I will surrender,
Surrender heart, mind, flesh and soul
Reveal to me, reveal your calling,
It is your will I long to know
