He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge...
— Psalm 91:4
Thoughts on Today's Verse...
Life is filled with many uncertainties. You never know when something unexpected is going to happen. You have no idea when the next disaster will strike. In a world filled with hate and terrorism, none of us has a clue when the next horrible atrocity will occur. So what do we do when we can't be sure of our circumstances? We take shelter under the wing of the One who is above all circumstances! We take assurance in our Father who has promised to bring us to himself no matter what may happen today ... in our world ... and to our bodies. Our lives are hidden with our Father because we've been joined to Christ (Colossians 3:1-4). He is our Refuge! His wings are our shelter!
Father, what words can I offer that are sufficient to thank and praise you for your deliverance that is greater than death? You are the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end; You are the God who was and is and is to come (Revelation 1:8, 21:6, 22:13). You are my Abba Father, who has adopted me and made me your own. I place my trust, my hope, and my future into your loving care, and I will not be afraid. I find my refuge under your wings! All praise to you in the name of Jesus. Amen.
