4 He will cover you with his pinions,
and under his wings you will find refuge;
his faithfulness is a shield and buckler.
Each day brings us challenges and blessings.
One of the challenges is to remember the Children of Israel and the Disciples were always concerned God would depart. Just vanish.
Ecclesiastes house deserted - forgetting Naomi and Ruth fought despair and walked through the desert, probably hungry - finding God would find life again. Blessings. Trusting God.
God would walk with us in our human conditions, in plenty on a beautiful lake with fish and in the desert. Our soul is cradled by our Father to arrive in His House, His Kingdom. God tells us He does not show partiality - God crosses borders and time - to reach us.
21 Then the LORD said, "Behold, there is a place by Me, and you shall stand there on the rock; 22 and it will come about, while My glory is passing by, that I will put you in the cleft of the rock and cover you with My hand until I have passed by. 23
"Then I will take My hand away and you shall see My back, but My face shall not be seen."
5The Lord descended in the cloud and stood with him there, and proclaimed the name of the Lord. 6The Lord passed before him and proclaimed, “The Lord, the Lord, a God merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness, 7keeping steadfast love for thousands,a forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, but who will by no means clear the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children and the children’s children, to the third and the fourth generation.” 8And Moses quickly bowed his head toward the earth and worshiped. 9And he said, “If now I have found favor in your sight, O Lord, please let the Lord go in the midst of us, for it is a stiff-necked people, and pardon our iniquity and our sin, and take us for your inheritance.”
Millenniums have progressed, Jesus is still cradling us.
1 Timothy 2
1 First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, 2 for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way. 3 This is good, and it is
pleasing in the sight of God our Savior, 4 who desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.
5 For there is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, 6 who gave himself as a ransom for all, which is the testimony given at the proper time. 7 For this I was appointed a preacher and an apostle (I am telling the truth, I am not lying), a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and truth.
8 I desire then that in every place the men should pray, lifting holy hands without anger or quarreling
Salvation exists in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved.
Will we be able to save ourselves? Salvation is a gift of God. We need Father God's Salvation in Jesus. We need His help when we feel we are wrong, tired, weary, too challenged to do His Will. We need His Mercy and Forgiveness.
Thank You God. God of Love. God of keen understanding.
Upholder of Righteousness. Keeper of Goodness. Protector of the weak. Defender of the merciful. Father of all. Calling His creation Good and His believers Beloved.
Thank You, You know all of our prayers. Thank You for Your Love and Mercy. In Jesus we are assured, upheld, honored, helped, loved and forgiven. Thank You, You keep us in Your embrace. Jesus holds us as His own Beloved. Amen.
