“For the earth will be filled With the knowledge of the glory of the LORD, As the waters cover the sea.  Habakkuk 2:14 (NASB)

As I looked out into the sky this morning, I saw how the clouds were resting on the mountains. They laid, ever so softly, on the tops of the mountains as if to cover them…protect them even.

It was beautiful to look at, peaceful and comforting.

As I reflected more, I began to think of how God covers us. I began to search for verses where God covered His children. Habakkuk 2:14 was one that I found and it resonated with me.

This verse likens the covering of God to His Glory. Not only that, His glory is revealed in our knowledge of Him and it will be as vast as the waters of the sea. What an incredible picture!

We have yet another example of knowing God and as we know Him more, we truly KNOW Him. We will come to know HIs Glory… His Presence… we will be covered by HIM! AND… it will be as big as the waters that cover the sea!!!!

WOW!

Often when I feel the presence of the Father, it is like a covering, a warm and cozy blanket that HE places over me. It is such an awesome feeling!

I LOVE to be covered by God!

I hope you have had this experience. If not, it is possible. In fact, the Lord is probably just waiting for you to come to Him so He can cover you. Go to Him now, quickly, and let Him cover you with His LOVE!!!

GOD doesn’t want something from us, HE simply wants us!  -C.S. Lewis

In His Arms


Your arms outstretched to me

Like wings creating a covering

Protection from all harm

And even, keeping me warm

Your love is gently moving

To overflowing, then all consuming

In Your protection, I breathe You in

And yet again, Your LOVE rushes in

So powerful and strong

But also peaceful and calm

Like a good Father, You keep me safe

Loving me in that secret place

The only place I ever want to be

With You now and for all eternity!
