Heavenly Father, show us how to rest in you, to be quiet in your presence and simply enjoy being close. Sometimes I need to rest between your shoulders on your back and be carried. Sometimes I need to rest between your shoulders in the front, being held tightly in your ever-loving, powerful arms. I put Moses’ blessing to Benjamin to work either way. I just heard Priscilla Shire teach about you being the prize. All my yeses are in you. You are sufficient, and I rest secure. The best power nap ever is for me to go aside and relish the residence of your Spirit in me and your presence around me. I thank you for wanting a close relationship with me. I pray in the name and authority of Jesus, who gave his life to tear the veil between God and man, according to the good and perfect will of the Father. Amen.
“Of Benjamin he said,
‘The beloved of the Lord dwells in safety.
The High God surrounds him all day long,
and dwells between his shoulders.’”(Deuteronomy 33:12 ESV)
“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 33:12 NIV)
