“There is no one like the God of Jeshurun, who rides the heavens to help you, And in His excellency on the clouds. The eternal God is your refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms; He will thrust out the enemy from before you, and will say, “Destroy!” Deuteronomy 33:26-27
Father, I thank you for all You did for all the participants at the Deeper Still retreat last weekend. There is no one like You. Lord, I thank you that you rode the heavens to help. Thank You that You are the refuge for the participants and team members. Thank you for thrusting out the enemy from before us and commanding every chain, every bondage, and every dark place to be destroyed!! In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
I am still elated by what happened at the October Deeper Still Retreat!!! This verse talks about God riding on the clouds. I think every team member is still riding on the clouds after all that happened! Two beautiful young ladies met Jesus for the first time and were SAVED!!! Woot! Woot!
The retreat location is beautiful. It is at Eagle Rock in Maryville, TN. From our view, the clouds are actually below the mountaintops in some areas.
God gave me the verse above for the retreat.
“There is no one like the God of Jeshurun.”
I did a little research on what “God of Jeshurun” meant as I have never heard this term used before I read this verse.
“Jeshurun” is a symbolic name for Israel (God’s children) describing her ideal character. It is a tender and loving name for the people of Israel.
God rode on the clouds last weekend to reach down and touch His sons and daughters in a real and personal way because He knows their ideal character. He is tender and loving and sees them as who He created them to be. He provides a refuge for them where He can reach in with His everlasting arms and grab hold to protect them from any schemes of the enemy. Then, He thrusts out the enemy from before them and commands His angelic armies to DESTROY the chains, the darkness, the lies, and the strongholds that have held them captive.
The verse that follows sums it up beautifully:
“Then Israel shall dwell in safety, the fountain of Jacob alone. In a land of grain and new wine; His heavens shall also drop dew. Happy are you, O Israel! Who is like you, a people saved by the Lord. The shield of Your help and the sword of your majesty! Your enemies shall submit to you, and you shall tread down their high places.” Deuteronomy 33:28-29
Oh prayer warriors, I so wish you could have been there with us to see it! Thank you for being with us in the Spirit and praying. Your prayers paved the way for 2 girls to get saved, the darkness to be held back and destroyed and for 19 lives to be forever changed! These participants are now dwelling in the safety of the Most High, in a land of blessing and newness. Their springs are overflowing with Living Water and fullness of joy! THANK YOU!!!
Please continue to pray for these 19 who were radically transformed and given new life and Deeper Still.
