September 7 – Everlasting Arms
The eternal God is thy refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms. – Deuteronomy 33:27
Arms, sheltering Arms, express the loving tenderness of your Father (My Father) in Heaven. Man, in his trouble and difficulty, needs nothing so much as a refuge. A place to hide in. A place where none and nothing can touch him.
Say to yourself, “He is our Refuge.” Say it until the truth sinks into your very soul. Say it until you know it – are so sure of it, that nothing can make you afraid.
Feel this not only until fear goes, but until Joy ripples through in its place. Refuge. Everlasting Arms so untiring, so safe – so sure.
I am as a wonder unto many; but thou art my strong refuge. Psalm 71:7
