"So it shall be, while My glory passes by, that I will put you in the cleft of the rock, and will cover you with My hand while I pass by." (Exodus 33:22)
Oh, praise God for the cleft of the Rock! A place where He hides our soul. Covers us with His Hand. Protects us from the enemy. A place of solitude. Rest. Rejuvenation.
A place where His glory passes by and we are tucked safe in the cleft, yet still feel His presence in a mighty way.
The cleft of the Rock is a place of safety. A place of glorious refuge.
Sometimes God has us nestled in the cleft to teach us. To enlighten us. To grow us.
Sometimes we are hidden in the cleft for protection. Protection from others. Protection from ourselves.
Sometimes we are in the cleft of the Rock so God can show us His glory. Remind us of who He is. Remind us of what He can do. Remind us of who we are. Refresh our memory as to who is in control.
There is peace in the cleft. There is rest in the cleft. There is sweet mercy in the cleft.
Oh, Father, when you tuck me away in the cleft of Your Rock, help me to see what you have for me there. Help me to be mindful of your purpose and your will. May I be content in the cleft. May I always seek you with all of my heart and desire nothing less than your will for my life. Oh, Lord, show me your glory! Do awesome things through me and with me.
"For it is an awesome thing that I will do with you" (Exodus 34:10)
Thank you for your prayers for Mercie. Her fever came down from 103.9 to 100. They ran 2 bags of Rocephin through her and her white count was better this morning. She is home and feeling much better! I am so thankful for the power of prayer. He worked a miracle in her little life last night and I am praising His name! He kept sweet Mercie in the cleft of the Rock!
