Glimpses of grace seen in the everyday

On the Wings of the Dawn

Today we’re packing and tomorrow we fly to the other side of the world for another two or three years to continue with the work God has given us to help provide His Word for people groups that still need it.

A few years ago we were in this same situation.  We were flying out of LA the next morning. But I could hardly face the idea of going for how many years, leaving all our family behind and whatever kind of “security” I might feel in my home country. 

At that very time, God gave me this verse from Psalm 139.9: 

If I rise on the wings of the dawn,
if I settle on the far side of the sea,
even there your hand will guide me,
your right hand will hold me fast. (NIV)

            This is just what I needed, and it fit our situation exactly—wings…dawn…far side of the sea…!  The reassurance of God’s presence, guidance and protection is my security no matter where He takes me and what He allows to happen.
