This world is a scary place to live in. It is full of evil and wicked people and things. We are constantly surrounded by Satan’s traps, ready to grab us and pull us into a life of despair.
But, as Christians, we are able to rise above such things. When the wicked things of this earth overpower us, we can run to the arms of our Lord.
He is always there to cover us from Satan’s advocates. Our great and mighty Father has promised us safety through the comfort of his words.
It says in Psalm 91:4, “He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.”
This is one of my favorite verses of the Bible because it tells that Yahweh (the Lord) will protect us from the snares of this world. We do not need to fear because we are under his wings.
I love the metaphor used here. The Lord is portrayed as a bird, probably a mother bird. A mother’s instinct is to protect her offspring with her life. She will cover and protect them. And her offspring will find refuge under her wings.
That is a beautiful picture of what Yahweh will do for us. There is no need to worry or fear because the Lord is hovering above us ready to cover us with his wings.
In His amazing love,
