Initially, I read past this verse this morning, but I felt like God was drawing me back, to linger, to ponder, to reflect…
Do you ever feel like you want to press ”pause” on life? To run to God, and just ”be.”
David showed me this morning that sometimes, no matter how close we are with God, there are times when it is ok to want to ”fly away” from the circumstances we are facing or the craziness of it all, and rest.
David was in despair over the betrayal of a close friend. To him, he described the need to have wings like a dove. This bird stays low and doesn’t fly far, but will take shelter as soon as they can.
Sometimes there is a need just to get away from it all. To spend time with God in His presence, His refuge, and strength, because there will always be the hustle and bustle of this world, but as David spoke on, we have to make time and be in the stillness of God’s peace, so that we can restore our soul.
True peace can only come when we retire, with God, in solitude.
So today, I encourage you to ”fly away”, and cry out to God with your deepest desires, your heartache, or to just cry because of exhaustion…God’s waiting
