UNDER HIS WINGS

Psalm 91:4 (NIV): “He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.”

Have you ever watched a mother hen with her brood of baby chicks? It is a wondrous sight. In times of fear or danger or when the chicks need rest, the mother hen will call to her babes and they will gather under her wings. There, the chicks are safe from weather and predators. No harm can come nigh them, because she uses her body to shield them. Likewise, God wants to cover His children with His wings. In times of stress, in times of fear, in times of loneliness, in times of weariness, we can run to our Father. We will find His arms open wide. He will lovingly gather us to Himself, and we are safe. Nothing and no one can harm us. He is our shield and fortress. God is a faithful parent who will use Himself to be a protective covering for His children. Aah … how comforting to know that we are safe and sound under His wings.

Abide in the shadow of the Almighty today!
