In the shadow of his wings

In the shadow of his wings…

David prayed, “Keep me as the apple of your eye; hide me under the shadow of Your wings, from the wicked who oppress me, from my deadly enemies who surround me” (Ps.17:8-9).


David looked for a secret place of security and found a ready refuge in God. “Yea,” cried David, “in the shadow of Your wings I will make my refuge until these calamities have passed by” (Ps. 57:1). These “calamities” were the results of David’s disastrous relationship with King Saul, who had forced David to run for his life and hide in the caves of the rock.


Do you know where to go in the midst of your calamities?


When I received news of my mother’s death one year ago today, my first reaction was to call a friend, summon my wife to comfort me-to enlist support. But I remembered His wings, and ran to Him. Then peace came! It did not minimize the loss I felt and the sorrow, but I realized that he knew the depth of my pain and loss. God knew what I needed even before I asked.


God knows what you’re facing day in, and day out. He sees every tear, every struggle, and every step we take. When we run to him, he will give us cover and shelter in the shadow of his wings-till these calamities be passed.” 


Have a blessed week,
