Living in the shelter of the Lord
Today my devotion for today is based on Micah 4:4, “Everyone will sit under their own vine and under their own fig tree, and no-one will make them afraid, for the Lord Almighty has spoken.”
As humans, we actively live each day. It’s not a passive journey or the free ride of a passenger. In the Gospel of John, we read that God is the vine, and we are the branches. In him, we will be more fruitful. Our loving Lord is the foundation. It’s his work to provide us with strength, structure, and support, all while being deeply rooted in the love of our Heavenly Father.
We know our king is coming, so we don’t just sit and wait. We actively look forward, anticipate and remind ourselves of the deeply personal relationship that God shares with each of us through his Son. We are refreshed and nourished in his shady shelter. That is good news.
Please pray with me, Heavenly Father, gracious and loving God; thank you for showing yourself through the words of the Bible. Your generous love amazes me, comforts me, and inspires me. You know the day I have in front of me; thank you for walking with me. As I live my life in Your grace, I know that I am protected from all that would separate me from you. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
