for He shields him all day long,
and the one the Lord loves rests between His shoulders.”
Deuteronomy 33:12b (NIV)
Let the beloved of the Lord rest secure in Him:
As a child of God, you are dearly loved and cherished by your Heavenly Father. You are a treasure to Him, and in Him you can rest peacefully and securely. He will never leave you alone, and His faithful love for you will never end. No matter what your age, this is God’s promise to His beloved child,”Even to your old age and gray hairs I am He, I am He who will sustain you. I have made you and I will carry you; I will sustain you and I will rescue you.” Isaiah 46:4
He shields him all day long:
God is a shield of protection for His children. In His protective care, we have nothing to fear. “In peace I will lie down and sleep, for You alone, Lord, make me dwell in safety.” Psalm 4:8 (NIV) “But You, Lord, are a shield around me, my glory, the One who lifts my head high.” Psalm 3:3 (NIV)
The one the Lord loves rests between His shoulders:
As a child you might have run into your father’s arms if you were hurt or afraid, or even when you were tired and sleepy. In his arms you felt safe and secure, as though nothing could happen to you in that place of refuge. You could lay your head between his shoulders an totally relax, seemingly without a care in the world. If you are going through a difficult time right now, imagine your Heavenly Father holding you in His loving arms. Relax in His divine embrace and feel His heavenly hug. ~ His beloved child rests securely between His shoulders:
- If you are afraid, He calms your fears.
- If you are in pain, He comforts you.
- If you are sick, He heals you.
- If you are heart-broken, He consoles you.
- If you are in danger, He protects you.
- If you are weary, He gives you rest.
- If you are discouraged, He encourages you.
- If you are weary, He gives you rest…
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” ~Jesus Matthew 11:28(NIV)
