IN THE SHADOW OF HIS WINGS
Thanks be unto God, that today we can take refuge in the shadow of the wings of the Almighty! God’s wings cover us and protect us from the trials of this life. God’s people are thankful for His covering! We know that in the time of trouble He will hide us under His wings. We know that under His wings no harm or danger will come to us. This ought to make us shout! When I think of the many times, I have sought Him in my troubles, I have found the strength and peace I needed. I know I am not alone when I write this for many of you have taken refuge under His wings. Today’s devotion is found in Psalm 36:7:
“How priceless is your unfailing love, O God! People take refuge in the shadow of your wings.”
The psalmist speaks of the providence and protection of God when we put our trust in Him. God’s protection is given when we are gathered under His wings. The psalmist is confident that there is shelter and protection under His wings. Throughout this Psalm, he writes of God’s children trusting Him because of His loving kindness. The steadfast love of the Lord extends to the heavens and His faithfulness to His people. He writes of God’s goodness and that there is no want in Him. He is the fountain of life that they can drink from and that never runs dry. They can find rest for their weary souls. Be strengthened today, as you seek His covering under His wings.
