New favorite chapter

I go through periods of time where I read the bible and the words speak to me and I understand the parables, and I eat it up, but there are no crazy revelations. I am not a bible scholar. Don’t get me wrong, I thirst for my bible reading time, and learning and relearning God’s Word, even if I am not a smarty pants.  Lately though, the words have been jumping off the page. {The upside to walking in a valley with our Savior.} Had you asked me Friday, I would have told you my favorite chapter in the Bible is James 1. It always seems to come back to that one. It either encourages, convicts or speaks to my soul at just the right time. Today though, I am officially changing it Psalm 91. I know as I grow and mature through life and my relationship with Christ, it will change from time to time-but this chapter has spoken to my healing soul in 3 ways; I will give you the specific verses….
vs 4 He will cover you with His pinions, and under His wings you will find refuge; His faithfulness is a shield and buckler. (does the imagery get any more beautiful? Finding refuge under the glorious wings of the Almighty God of the universe?)
vs 11-12 For He will command His angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways. On their hands they will bear you up lest you strike your foot against a stone. (He cares enough about us to concern His angels with yours and my wellbeing. Overwhelming)
vs 14-16 “Because he holds fast to me in love, I will deliver him, I will protect him, because he knows my name. When he calls to me I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble I will rescue him and honor him. With a long life I will satisfy him and show him my salvation.”

    There’s no other place I’d rather find refuge than under His wings. I like to think of being under his wing, as kind of like a wind break. You know how tree lines do that? except that under God’s wings is even better. High speed winds can’t blow you down (no matter how loud they are), tornados can’t catch you up in their funnels, rain can’t drown you. You’re safe. Perfectly safe. Praying for you my friend!
