Psalm 42: 1-2
As the deer pants for the water brooks,
So pants my soul for You, O God. My soul thirsts for God,
for the living God.
Psalm 91: 1-2
He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High
will rest in the Shadow of the Almighty. I will say
of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress…my
God, in whom I trust.”
Psalm 42: 8
The Lord will command His lovingkindness in the daytime.
And at night His song shall be with me.
Psalm 93: 4
The Lord on high is mightier than the noise of many waters, than the mighty waves
of the sea.
Exodus 20: 2 For I am the Lord, your God.
Psalm 104: 1-2- 3
Oh Lord, my God, You are very great: You are clothed with honor and majesty, Who covers Yourself with light as with a garment…Who makes the clouds His chariot, Who walks on the wings of the wind.. Psalm 103: 3-4 Who forgives all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases,
Who redeems your life from destruction, Who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies…
Jeremiah 31: 3 The Lord said: I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore with lovingkindness I have drawn you.
The Lord comforts us with His Word. He knows that our soul does not rest until He
inhabits us, that we long for and wait for Him to fill that empty place in our lives. So He
welcomes us to find shelter in Him – to find ‘rest in the Shadow of the Almighty.’ He promises
His lovingkindness by day and His song by night. He is our mighty and gracious God in whom
we trust and in whom we rest. He is our place of refuge. This is why we love Him. This is why
we praise Him. He has declared Himself our God because He loves us.
