October 21

“Let the beloved of the Lord rest secure in him, for he shields him all day long, and the one the Lord loves rests between his shoulders.” Deuteronomy 33:12 (NIV)

At the very end of the writings of Moses we find a compilation of the blessings promised to the children of Israel. The verse today is the promise given to the tribe of Benjamin. These are promises that are as valid today as they were in the days of Moses. I say that because they are for those whom the Lord loves. He did love the people of Benjamin then and He loves His own today. We read that the one whom God loves rests between His shoulders. Does that not mean that the Lord embraces those who He loves? And doesn’t an embrace mean safety and protection? He draws you to Himself and loves you in His embrace. That means safety.
