Come enter His rest

Encompassed in His love
Surrounded by songs of deliverance

Before His throne. –Isa 66:1

Word Study
From NetBible Zep 3:17

  • save[03467] = to save, to be liberated, to give victory to
    *from a primitive root, Greek [5614] = hosanna
  • He will quiet you[02790] = make silent, give rest
    * “he causes [you] to be silent by his love,” that is, “he soothes [you] by his love.” The present translation follows the LXX and assumes an original reading יְחַדֵּשׁ (yÿkhaddesh, “he renews”) with ellipsis of the object (“you”).

    • NET … He renews you by His love
    • NLT …  With His love, He will calm all your fears
    • KJV … He will rest in His love{give you rest in His love}
  • love[0160] = God’s love for His people, faithfulness

Isaiah 60:13 NASB
13 “The glory of Lebanon will come to you,
The juniper, the box tree and the cypress together,
To beautify the place of My sanctuary;
And I shall make the place of My feet glorious.

From NetBible Isa 60:13

  • beautify[06286] = glorify, adorn
  • sanctuary[04720] = temple, tabernacle, sacred holy place
    Ezek 43:7, where the Lord’s throne is called the “place of the soles of my feet.”
    Isa 66:1, the Lord’s throne is where He rests His feet – He rests/abides
    “Heaven is My throne, And earth is My footstool. Where is the house that you will build Me? And where is the place of My rest?”
  • glorious[03513] = to bestow honor
    Isaiah 11:10 AMP
    10 And it shall be in that day that the Root of Jesse shall stand as a signal[banner, rally point] for the peoples; of Him shall the nations inquire and seek knowledge, and His dwelling shall be glory [His rest glorious[03519]]!

Psalm 46:10Be still and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.

Psalm 95:6-7O come, let us bow down in worship, let us kneel[01288] before the LORD our Maker; For He is our God, And we are the people of His pasture and the sheep of His hand.

In the Shadow of His Wings

June 1, 2009


In the shelter of the Most High
Be covered with His feathers
In the shadow of His wings
Take refuge and find rest, sweet rest.

My soul finds rest in God alone; He alone is my rock and my salvation;   –Ps 62:1-2

Enter His rest, come and abide
Be hidden beneath His wings
Kept safe as the apple of His eye.   –Ps 17:8

There in the shadow of His wings
Righteousness, peace and joy    –Rom 14:17
Glad joy, inexpressible joy full of glory.    –1 Pe 1:8

Rejoice in the shadow of His wings
In the cleft of the Rock be glad
And ever sing for joy!   –Ps 63:7; Song 2:14


Psalm 91:1-2, 4 NLT    Those who live in the shelter of the Most High
Will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
This I declare about the Lord:
“He alone is my refuge, my place of safety;
He is my God, and I trust Him”.

He will cover you with His feathers.
He will shelter you with His wings.
His faithful promises are your armor and protection.


Psalm 5:11-12 NLT    Let all who take refuge in You rejoice;
Let them sing joyful praises forever.
Spread Your protection over them,
That all who love Your name may be filled with joy.
For You bless the godly, O Lord;
You surround them with Your shield of love.

Psalm 17:8 Keep me as the apple of Your eye;
Hide me under the shadow of Your wings.

Come to I AM
I know you are in need of My rest. -Mt 11:28

Draw near
I AM your hiding place
I AM will keep you safe surrounded with songs of deliverance.

Come close, close enough for our eyes to meet
I will show you the way to go
I will guide you with My eye. -Ps 32:7-8

Draw near
Be hidden beneath My wings
Lift up your eyes to I AM
Behold as the eyes of servants look to their King -Ps 123:1-2
My eye will guide you
I AM will bless you and keep you
Be kept as the apple of My eye in the shadow of My wings
My face will shine upon you and be gracious to you
My face will turn toward you
And you shall have the peace of I AM.

Numbers 6:24-26 AMP
The Lord bless you and watch, guard, and keep you; The Lord make His face to shine upon and enlighten you and be gracious (kind, merciful, and giving favor) to you; The Lord lift up His [approving] countenance upon you and give you peace (tranquility of heart and life continually).
