Psalm 63:7,8 – “Because you are my help, I sing in the shadow of your wings. My soul clings to you; your right hand upholds me.”
I love these verses. They are so beautiful. They hold such a loving and special picture.
Life is rough sometimes. Things don’t always turn out like we think they should. It is so easy to slide down into depression. We look around us and see all that we do not have and forget to look at what we do have. Even in the darkest hours, we still have Jesus. The devil has the capability of using this promise against us, if we let him. He will say, “Well, wouldn’t you rather just go and see Him?” He tries to get us to give up the fight. Yes, we want to see Him, but that doesn’t mean we quit fighting and living.
As long as God gives you breath, you must keep going. He is not finished with you yet. He still has work for you to do.
But He doesn’t ask you to go at it alone. He is your help. Look back at the key verse for today. “I sing in the shadow of your wings.” God has His mighty wings around you, protecting you from the outside world. Yes, sometimes He allows things to get through because He knows that constant protection does not allow for strengthening and growth. He protects us just enough to cause us to sing. I love to sing. And the thought of singing in His wings makes me smile.
Hold onto Him. Let Him be your flashlight if you are walking through a dark place right now. Cling to Him and ask Him to put your feet on solid ground. I guarantee He will lift you up. You just have to ask and trust.
