Before we went to the hospital I bought a hanging flower basket from a local youth group. We were gone a while. When we came home I also spotted our little wren who comes to our deck each year to nest. She was enjoying the hanging basket as she went in and out often. Yesterday I went to water the basket and heard tiny cheeps from within. She had built her nest in the basket! What a lovely place too- full of blooms and greenery and strategically placed where nothing could get to her.
Although we weren’t there to protect her she was safe because God provided and gave her safety. He cares even for the birds.
Oh beloved God wants you to know this morning that He has made a beautiful place for you to have your habitation. He has made it that you are safely away from all pests. He has given you boundaries where the enemy may come close but no closer.
He says to you do not fear. I have you safely in My guarding hand. All around you is desert but you are lushly supplied with beauty in your safe place.
God loves you and He is for you. You are learning to remain secure with the Lord. He is teaching you that His provision in your best habitation. And you will go out with joy and be led forth with peace as you allow Him to take care of you in His place of rest and peace.
Psalm 16:6 The lines have fallen to me in pleasant places; Indeed, my heritage is beautiful to me.
Psalm 91:14 Because he has loved Me, therefore I will deliver him; I will set him securely on high, because he has known My name.
Psalm 5:11 11 But let all who takerefuge in You be glad, Let them ever sing for joy; And may You shelter them, That those who love Your namemay exult in You.
