Rest in the shadow
In the shade of the Almighty
The shade of a great Rock
A great Rock in a thirsty land –
Is 32:2,25:4-5

The LORD himself watches over you! The LORD stands beside you as your protective shade. -Ps 121:5 NLT

Come rest secure
In the shadow of His wings
In the shade – the canopy of His glory
Rest, glorious rest!
Is 11:10

Isaiah 4:5-6 AMP … And the Lord will create over the whole site, over every dwelling place of Mount Zion and over her assemblies, a cloud and smoke by day and the shining of a flaming fire by night; for over all the glory shall be a canopy (a defense of divine love and protection). And there shall be a pavilion[tabernacle] for shade in the daytime from the heat, and for a place of refuge and a shelter from storm and from rain.

From NetBible Isa 4:5-6

  • dwelling place[04349] = established place, habitation
  • canopy[02646] = divine protection, defense
    =>”over all the glory, a canopy.” This may allude to Exod 40:34-35, where a cloud overshadows the meeting tent as it is filled with God’s glory.
  • pavilion[05521] =tabernacle, booth
  • shade[06738] = shadow, protection, defense

Psalm 91:1-2, 4 AMP
1 He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High
Will remain secure and rest in the shadow of the Almighty [whose power no enemy can withstand].
2 I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress,
My God, in whom I trust [with great confidence, and on whom I rely]!”
… He will cover you with His pinions, and under His wings shall you trust and find refuge; His truth and His faithfulness are a shield and a buckler.

From NetBible Ps 91:1

  • dwells[03427] = abides, remains, have one’s abode, to marry (give a dwelling to)
  • shelter[05643] = covering, hiding place, secret place
  • rest[03885] = abide, dwell, lodge{all night}
  • shadow[06738] = shade, protection, defense
  • *  In this psalm an individual (perhaps a priest) addresses one who has sought shelter in the Lord and assures him that God will protect him from danger (vv. 1-13). In vv. 14-16 God himself promises to keep his loyal follower safe.
  • * The Lord is compared here to a bird who protects its young under the shadow of its wings (see v. 4).
  • *  The divine name used here is “Shaddai” (שַׁדַּיshadday; see also Ps 68:14). Shaddai (or El Shaddai) is the mighty king (sovereign judge) of the world who grants life/blesses and kills/judges. In Genesis he blesses the patriarchs with fertility and promises numerous descendants. Outside Genesis he both blesses/protects and takes away life/happiness.

Draw Me Away!

August 15, 2013

Song 1:2-4 … Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth — For your love is better than wine. Because of the fragrance of your good ointments, Your name is ointment poured forth; Therefore the virgins love you. Draw me away after you and let us run together! The king has brought me into his chambers.” “We will rejoice in you and be glad; We will extol your love more than wine. The upright love you.”

Jeremiah 31:3“Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love; Therefore with lovingkindness{unfailing love} I have drawn you”.

Psalm 63:2-3 , 7-8… I have seen you in the sanctuary and beheld your power and your glory. Because your love is better than life, my lips will glorify you. … Because you are my help, I sing in the shadow of your wings. My soul follows hard after You; Your right hand upholds me.

Draw Me Away!

[LORD]Draw me, draw me, draw me away
Draw me, draw me, draw me away.

For you have drawn{loved} me with an everlasting love
A love more delightful than wine.

You’ve stolen{captured} my heart
I’ve tasted and seen
And now I run after thee.

The above scripture and song were on my mind again. From the Word Study below we see that the cry “Draw me away!” is figure of speech, a cry to the Lord to be led or captured in His “cords of love”.

  • It is the cry of one who wants to be a willing captive of the Lord’s love, His goodness.
  • It’s the cry of one who has beheld the glory of the Lord in His sanctuary.
  • It’s the cry of one who has tasted and seen that
    • The Lord’s love is more delightful than wine
    • The Lord’s love is better than life
    • The Lord’s love is everlasting and unfailing

It is a desperate cry, an eager desire to experience the Lord’s love once again. A desire to follow hard and run with enough determination to catch the Lord who is being pursued. Once the Lord is “caught” – O what rejoicing beneath His wings!

  • Spin, leap with joy
  • in gladness shine with joy
  • Sing with lips that glorify the Lord!

The Lord reminded me of the best reason to cry out “Draw me away”! The Lord promises to make this place of the King’s chamber, His sanctuary, this place beneath His wings, the throne, the place He rests His feet – GLORIOUS!

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

.

[LORD]Draw me, draw me, draw me away
Draw me, draw me, draw me away.

To the place of Your feet
What glorious rest  -Isa 11:10,4:5;Ps 66:2
O how I adore You LORD!

From NetBible Song 1:4;Jer 31:3

  • Draw[04900] = to lead
    *The verb מָשַׁךְ (mashakh, “draw”) is a figurative expression (hypocatastasis) which draws an implied comparison between the physical acting of leading a person with the romantic action of leading a person in love. Elsewhere it is used figuratively of a master gently leading an animal with leather cords (Hos 11:4) and of a military victor leading his captives (Jer 31:3). The point of comparison might be that the woman wants to be the willing captive of the love of her beloved, that is, a willing prisoner of his love.
  • run after[07323] = to eagerly hurry, chase
  • rejoice[01523] = spin, circle around(dance, leap) in joy
  • be glad[08055] = be merry, to brighten up, shine in joy
  • everlasting love[0160] = God’s love to His people
  • lovingkindness[02617] = unfailing love, goodness, mercy, kindness, faithfulness

From NetBible Ps 63:8

  • follow hard[01692] = a determination to cling, cleave, be joined, to run after with determination to overtake and capture

From NetBible Is 60:13

  • 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?”

In the Shadow of His Wings

June 1, 2009

DanceDove

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).
