“your high cliff aerie a place of safety” MSG
“A hiding place on high” TPT
“This made me think and wonder why the image of a cliff aerie is used. I searched up the meaning of aerie and this is the definition :
“high or inaccessible place from which someone can observe what is below them.”
Two things came to mind.
First, God’s hiding place is inaccessible to the enemy, He holds us high above the enemy’s reach.
Secondly, it gives us a new vantage point. When we are on a cliff aerie we can see for miles.
When we make Jesus our hiding place and run to Him in times of trouble, he gives His vantage point so we can view our situation through His eyes, His perspective ”

Baby Dedication – 15th May
Leah Rose Alexander
Daughter of Natalia & Mike Alexander, and sister to Rosa. Natalia says, “I have been coming to the Vine since February 2018. Prior to that I went to Destiny Church Dunfermline & Destiny Church Gorgie location. I was brought up in a Christian home and was baptised when I was 11. I want to keep on growing in Christ!”
Children are a gift from God.
A dedication is a celebration, a commitment and a blessing.
