“the beloved of the LORD rest secure in him”

This is a republication of an old but still profitable “Letter to Harry” posted at my web site under the tag “Gold Mining”.

Yours truly,

GOLD MINE 1:  DEUTERONOMY 33:12

THE BELOVED OF THE LORD REST SECURE IN HIM.

July 29, 1992

Harry:

God loves us, and we rest secure in Him!

As you may remember, I am going through the Bible sequentially starting with John and reading a chapter or more a day. I have already moved from John through Revelation and then started in Genesis and now I am at Deuteronomy 33.

I came across an unfamiliar verse that I would like to share with you. It presents a beautiful memorable picture. “About Benjamin he said: `Let the beloved of the LORD rest secure in him, for he shields him all day long, and the one the LORD loves rests between his shoulders.’”  Deuteronomy 33:12b

What wonderful love God has for us!  It is particularly meaningful to me as I hold my two-year old son, Joshua, in my lap with his chest and head resting on my chest between my shoulders. Joshua falls asleep secure, and I love him and protect him with awe and wonder.

Does God love us and protect us any less?!
