Because the Psalmist often faced times of physical danger, God often spoke to him in terms of safety and protection. He begins by inviting us to live in “the secret place of the Most High” (Psalm 91:1) …an intimate place of absolute safety. But that language may sound too lofty for the down-to-earth challenges you will face today. And so he offers a more earthy picture.
In the simplest of picture language he uses the imagery of the protection a mother bird provides for her young.
“He will cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you will find refuge.”
In the most trying circumstances today – or any day, draw on the calm assurance of our Lord’s strong protective “wings”. He cares for you.
Throughout this day help me to remember your care and protection. Amen
