Wings Like a Dove

Oh, that I had wings like a dove! I would fly away and be at rest. -Ps 55:6

Who are these who fly like a cloud and like doves to their windows? -Is 60:8
Who shine with the Lord’s glory?Isa 60:1-3

Those who look to the Lord for help are radiant!
Their faces will never blush in shame or confusion.
–Ps 34:5 AMP

Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the LORD rises upon you. -Is 60:1

My beloved speaks and says to me, Arise, my love, my fair one, and come away. …
… O my dove, [here] in the clefts in the rock,
In the sheltered and secret place of the steep pathway,
Let me see your face, Let me hear your voice;
For your voice is sweet, And your face is lovely. -Song 2:10,14

Arise, my dove, come away and be at rest!

    This speaks of those who know where the secret place is
    => beneath the wings of the Lord Almighty -Ps 91

    This secret place of rest, of shelter, of refuge
    This is where the Lord is calling “His dove”
    => His children

    He longs to see the radiant faces of those who trust Him
    and know that He alone is their help
    He longs to hear their voices respond to His call.
    => His call provides “breath”, “wind” to allow open wings to “fly” to Him their home/ resting place…

    Psalm 68:13
    When you lie down among the sheepfolds,
    You are like the wings of a dove covered with silver,
    And its pinions with glistening gold.

    A song:

    Wings, wings, opening
    Wings, wings, pure white wings
    The wings of His dove
    Open, anticipating …

    O how they need His wind to fly!
