I cannot tell you how much this truth has changed my perspective and my walk!! It's breath taking!! When scripture tells us He is our refuge, or hiding place. When it talks about us resting in the shadow of the most High, it's not some vague thing it's speaking of. When trials and tribulation comes, there is refuge from the storm, if we only lay down our troubles and anxieties, and worship this God who holds us in the palm of His hand!
I asked the Lord to show my a song, if there was one, that spoke about this very verse. That day, I walked into our local Christian book store, and this was playing! I stood awe struck in the middle of the shop with tears running down my face!! It was wonderful, because people were wondering why I was in tears, and I got to share with them! I wasn't the only one who bought a Selah c.d with the song on it that day!
This song is so special to me! Years later, I still cry when I listen to it! Oh how I wish I had understood this simple truth from the beginning! Praise is the gateway to peace, Worship takes us to the Living Waters,Water restores our soul and gives us rest! It washes all our worries and cares away,and allows to focus fully on His goodness, His mercy, His breath taking love!! To know Him is to want to know Him more!!
Seek Him and He will be found, draw near and He will draw near to you! What a glorious promise! What a wonderful God!!!
blessings to you
