EVERLASTING ARMS

The Eternal God is your refuge and dwelling place, and underneath are His everlasting arms.  Deuteronomy 33:27 Amp. Bible

Listen to God speaking to you today!

No matter where you are and no matter what is going on around you, you are safe in Me.  I am your refuge and dwelling place.  My arms never tire of holding you.

During the day, remember the everlasting arms of God are holding you.  Resting in your awareness of Me will bring you closer to trust.  Do not strive.  I am a God of peace.

Trust Me and grow in your understanding.  Your soul will expand in quietness.  Your entire being will radiate.  This is My will for you.

Your dwelling place and your home is in My arms.  You can trust that the concerns of your heart are held securely in the promises I have given you.  My will for you is that you trust, lean on and confidently hope in Me.  I have said my children are like Mount Zion which cannot be moved, abiding and standing fast forever.  As the mountains are round about Jerusalem, so am I round about My people forever.  

Don't reject My embrace.  Psalm 125:1,2
