He Surrounds Us

Previous verse devotional, He Chooses Us here.

I am surrounded
By the arms of the Father
I am surrounded
By songs of deliverance

When I first read these lines I thought I had already used the scriptures that go with this verse, but as I started looking up being “surrounded by the Father’s love” - WOW! He is ALL encompassing with His love!

In Isaiah 54:10 we read that His unfailing love for us will not be shaken and His covenant of peace will not be removed.

In Ephesians 3 we learn that all God’s people should understand:
  • How wide
  • How long
  • How high
  • How deep His love is!
He takes great delight in us, He quiets us with His love and rejoices over us with singing. Zepanaiah 3:17 
If we trust in the Lord, His lovingkindness will surround us - Psalm 32:10
He crowns us with lovingkindess and compassion - Psalm 103:4
He surrounds us with favor (delight, pleasure) as with a shield - Psalm 5:12
I am in awe of a faithful and loving God. I am overwhelmed by His great love for me, for us, for you!

Is it hard to believe he loves you? Is it hard to believe He loves you that much? Today ask that the dawning day would bring you revelation of His tender, unfailing love (Psalm 143:8 Passion Translation).

Lord, thank you for your never-ending and all encompassing love. Your love changes everything. When it is hard to believe, give me a revelation of your love for me. Fill me with your love in my innermost being, so that I may pour Your love out on everyone I come in contact with. I ask that I hear your songs of deliverance over me. Show me the safety in the arms of a good, good Father. Amen

He Liberates Us will post on Thursday, September 7th, please join us.
