“So Israel will live in safety; Jacob will dwell secure in a land of grain and new wine, where the heavens drop dew.” (Deuteronomy 33:28)
Dear friend, today’s promise from God is from Deuteronomy 33:28, “So Israel will live in safety; Jacob will dwell secure in a land of grain and new wine, where the heavens drop dew.” In a time like what a comforting promise this is. The Lord says, “no matter what surrounds you, I will protect you and you will be safe.” Just like how a bird protects its young ones, the Lord will protect you.
There is a special bird in South America that protects its young ones in a special way. The nest of this bird is right above the water. So as soon as the eggs hatch and new born birds come out, the father bird goes out to protect them. The father birds of these types of birds have small pouches under their wings to protect the young ones. So as soon as the eggs hatch, they will go to rescue the young ones. They will keep the young ones in the pouches and take them around wherever they go.
Until the young ones are able to swim by themselves the father birds carry them. Likewise, the Bible says, “He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.” (Psalm 91:4) In the same way the Lord says that He will protect you. Even if diseases surround you, you will be safe because you are under the wings of the Almighty. Thank God for this promise and go about your work boldly. You have divine protection around you.
Thank You for this wonderful promise. Especially in a time as this, I depend on You for my protection. Carry me under Your wings and shield me from all harm. Cover me with Your precious blood and keep me safe.
In Jesus’ precious name, I pray. Amen.
