Strength For Today

A journey of keeping my heart, mind, and body in TODAY

Psalm 91:4

He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.  ~Psalm 91:4

He will cover me. He will protect me.  He will shelter me and guard me.  I can run to Him.  I can find strength in Him.  I can find safety under His protection.  I can seek Him and He will provide these things for me.  He will be my shield and my rampart – my defense.

This image brings me such peace and confidence, not in anything that I am but in everything that He is.  He is so GREAT! He is so Powerful!  How can anything stop me if God is on my side?  How can I lose if God is my Shield and Rampart? How can I fall if He is always lifting me up?

There is so much about this verse that I just want to wrap up in.  Like a blanket.  A warm blanket.  A warm fuzzy blanket.

But, alas, that is not where I am at today.  The Truth of this verse is just not sinking in.  I mean, I get it.  I believe that God is who He says He is and that He will do what He says He will do.  But, today, I’m just not feeling it.  It just hasn’t gone past the surface of my thoughts.  This awareness provides me an opportunity to dig a little deeper into why.  And I am grateful for that.
