In His Care
When God appears to us in our barren wasteland and delivers us from our captivity of iniquity, He hides us away in His Nest, covers us with His Wing and our spiritual maturation begins.
He provides and fulfills our every need so that we learn that He is our sole support and portion...all that we truly need is in Him.
In His avid affection for His fledglings, He guards, protects and nurtures us, proving He alone is our strength and refuge.
He instructs us in His Ways and educates us in His Word, meeting us exactly where we are...providing us with what we are ready to receive in His timing.
In our obedience and growth, He reveals more of His essence and character and teaches us that He truly is Lord and Master and all that He says is irrefutable.
As He tenderly tests us and crafts each step in our walk, He reveals to us what perfect unconditional love, grace and mercy truly are and He covers us with it endlessly...eternally.
As we let go of our former idols and self, He is our God, our Deliverer, our Portion, our Shepherd...we worship Him only and put none above Him, for we have learned the power and majesty of Him and we know our God!
And then one day, according to Him and because of all that He Is....we rise on Eagles' Wings...and with Him, by Him and through Him...we learn to fly...
"But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint." (Isaiah 40:31)
"Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know." (Jeremiah 33:3)
"For in the time of trouble
He shall hide me in His pavilion;
In the secret place of His tabernacle
He shall hide me;
He shall set me high upon a rock." (Psalm 27:5)
"And, behold, I am with thee, and will keep thee in all places whither thou goest, and will bring thee again into this land; for I will not leave thee, until I have done that which I have spoken to thee of." (Genesis 28:15)
