God’s Covering

God’s Covering…

Yom Kippur means The Day of Atonement, or The Day of Covering. But it’s also called Yom Ha Kippurim – The Day of the Coverings. God’s covering is so great that the singular word covering cannot quite cover it.

Jesus is the fulfillment of Yom Ha Kippurim – Jesus is our covering – or rather our coverings. If you’ve received Him, every one of your sins is covered. But it means more. When someone’s watching over you, they say, “I’ve got you covered.” Well, He’s got you covered. When you lay down at night, you can sleep securely because “He’s got you covered.” When you’re in danger and you need someone to protect you, “He’s got you covered.”

In ancient times when a man offered a woman his love, his house, his protection, his life, he would spread His cloak over her. In that way too, “He’s got you covered.”

So celebrate Jesus’ Coverings. Walk in courage, and without fear because the Day of Atonement is really Yom Ha Kippurim – the Day of the Coverings. And if you don’t remember that – just remember “He’s got you Covered.”

Blessed is he whose transgressions are forgiven, whose sins are covered. Blessed is the man whose sin the LORD does not count against him and in whose spirit is no deceit. When I kept silent, my bones wasted away through my groaning all day long. Psalm 32:1

Today, meditate on, receive, and walk in the knowledge and security and peace of Jesus.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
