“The eternal God is our hiding place; he carries us in his arms.” (Deuteronomy 33: 27, Contemporary English Version)
We are sheltered at all times. God is always keeping us secure, holding us as His beloved children and expression, within the sanctuary of His Life and Love. We are not alone and vulnerable. We are hidden from danger and trouble within God’s perfect embrace.
The world’s presentations and our own fears may loom great and powerful against our composure. We may feel exposed to threats and the woes of material experience, misunderstanding, human opinions. But these slings and arrows are nothing against the shield of God’s eternal Allness and ever-presence. These slanderous accusations have no power to gain entry to our true selves, our real being, held secure in the shelter of divine Truth and Love.
When things seem difficult and would attempt to get you mesmerized, transfixed by events or predictions or regrets, remember where you truly are. You have a precious and permanent place in God’s house, in His conscious awareness, and none of these things can harm you. Know that you are being carried through and over these challenges, like a child, in the arms of God’s holy, loving, harmonious, true purpose. We are always being preserved as evidence of God’s intention, showing forth His good Life—intact, serene, comfortable, beautiful, and safe.
