GOD’S WORD FOR JANUARY 13
GOD’S WORD FOR JANUARY 13 ~ ~ Isaiah 51:16 ~ ~ “And I have put My Words in your mouth, and I have covered you in the shadow of My hand, that I may plant the heavens, and lay the foundations of the earth, and say to Zion, thou art my people.”
Notice, He says, “I have covered you in the shadow of My hand” The shadow of His hand. He doesn’t say we are constantly covered with His hand, held down by His power. But His hand is there, poised, ready to gently come down to cover us when we call on Him, when we trust Him. He doesn’t force His Presence on us, but waits for us to come into that relationship with Him. Then He is so joyful to protect us, and we have nothing to fear.
James 1:6 tells us to ask in faith, nothing wavering. We must know that when we ask, and give ourselves completely into His Will, nothing can touch us that He hasn’t ordained to happen.
His Words are in our mouth as in the verse above when we are one with Him, as He intended from the first. When our hearts are one with Him, our words will be also. We have nothing to fear in that situation, and His hand is hovering above us, allowing us to make a few mistakes, which will draw us closer to Him as we come back to repent.
He watches us like a mother lion, allowing us to go toward trouble, but ready with His Hand hovering to save us if we go too far. We must be always in a position to be in the shadow of His Hand.
