It took me seeing the Father in someone else’s actions before I really understood the role He was wanting me to allow Him to fill. It’s things like this that we have to LET Him do, He can’t make us.
“He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High Will remain secure and rest in the shadow of the Almighty [whose power no enemy can withstand].”PSALMS 91:1 AMP
THIS is how safe we are.
My heart had such a fear for safety. An old, ingrained fear that was buried beneath busyness, complacency, and religion. A fear I wasn’t aware of until He revealed it. But His desire was to name me: Secure; to allow me walk out the TRUTH that He really does have me.
The peace that comes from letting God be God, from leaning on Him, from letting yourself just be carried is beyond words. The trust is a PROCESS, but one I was willing to begin.
The self-trusting woman is often anxiety-riddled; she is tired. I’m certain she has known no other way. However, when the other options are no longer options, but death sentences, threats of “more of the same,” THEN the tide can shift. But we have to decide.
When we’re willing to let go and just be daughters, when we’re willing to release…. there’s a beautiful, strong, safe place to REST.
“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 NIV
“I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.””Psalm 91:2 NIV“The Lord is my rock, my fortress, and my savior; my God is my rock, in whom I find protection. He is my shield, the power that saves me, and my place of safety.”Psalms 18:2 NLT“The name of the LORD is a strong tower; The righteous runs to it and is safe and set on high [far above evil].”PROVERBS 18:10 AMP
