“I will take refuge in the shadow of your wings…” Psalm 57
On occasion, we all get that warm fuzzy feeling from a picture of a loved one, or something someone says…
But nothing compares to the presence and love of God! Today after a morning Bible Study, I was challenged to think about the times in my life when I have felt Gods presence, and in how He reveals himself.
Through scripture, through others, through prayer, through nature….he reaches us…
A gentle presence of love, comfort and peace….all fear and pain is washed away.
Thank you Jesus for this day! I know you have me in your hands and I have so much to be thankful for.
In the book of Philippians Paul says, “I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do all this through him who gives me strength.” 4:12-13
My prayer is that we all may know this contentness that Paul speaks about. To be content is being free of fear or worry.
“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?” Matthew 6:25-27
How is God revealing himself to you?
