Under His Wings

Myrna Folkert

Read: Psalm 91

He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge. (v. 4 NIV)

As I was driving to work one day I slid on ice around a corner and rolled my car. I climbed out unharmed, knowing it could have been so much worse and very thankful the Lord had protected me. It was a frightening experience and shook me up, but I realized God’s faithfulness. It made me reevaluate ways that the Lord might still be planning to use my life.

We can relate Psalm 91 to many life circumstances. It has beautiful imagery of God’s protection and truth. He is the only living God. He is our protector from unexpected forces, and he’s beside us at all times. We can rest behind his shadow and trust that he will be our guide. When we feel like a bird in a trap, he is there to snatch us out. When there are harmful evil forces and persecution, he will cover us like a mother bird does with her wings.

When Satan throws evil darts, God will shield us day or night if we call on his name. When thousands fall away from the Lord, he will speak truth into our lives through his Word and people. During challenges, he will uphold us and be our defender and command angels to shield us. Life can hand us difficulties, but he provides for all our needs. He will hold us secure in the hollow of his hand. —Myrna Folkert

Prayer: Thank you, mighty Protector, for being my constant and faithful guide.
