I encourage you to read all of Psalm 91 everyday about God’s protection in the midst of danger and it gives us a wonderful picture of God’s protection for us. It is when things go wrong, when the good things do not happen, when our prayers seem to have been lost, that God is most present. We do not need the sheltering wings when things go smoothly. We are closest to God in the darkness, stumbling along blindly.’He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge. We’re totally safe when we are covered by Him, and He remains faithful to that word, and has done so throughout history, as long as His people remained faithful and walked with Him.
“He shall cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you shall take refuge.” ~ Psalm 91:4
Life is filled with many uncertainties. You never know when something unexpected is going to happen. You have no idea when the next disaster will strike. In a world filled with hate and evil, none of us has a clue when the next horrible atrocity will take place.
So what do we do when we can’t be sure of our circumstances? We take shelter under the wing of the One who is above all circumstances! We take assurance in our Father who has promised to bring us to himself no matter what may happen today … in our world … and to our bodies. Our lives are hidden with our Father because we’ve been joined to Christ. He is our Refuge! His wings are our shelter!
My friends, see yourself under the wings of your Savior, who has promised you this in His Word: “He shall cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you shall take refuge.” But our protection under God has to do with our obedience. Provided we walk in righteousness before Him we are covered. It is when we sin that we open up a hole in our covering and are liable to enemy attack. God will remain faithful to His promise of protection if we remain obedient, and He will keep us safe in all circumstances, though not necessarily from all circumstances.
Have a wonderful day resting under His wings.
