I love these words because there is no better place to be than under the wings of our Lord! This analogy is used a few times in the Bible. Psalm 63:7 says, “Because you have been my help, therefore in the shadow of your wings will I rejoice.”
It is a picture that the people of that day could truly relate to, that of God loving and protecting His children, as a mother hen protects her little chicks.
When there is danger, the little chicks will run under their mother who would ruffle out her feathers and cover them with her wings. This is one of the many pictures of God in the Old Testament. And sometimes I just need to get under His wings! When I face tough and difficult times in this world, my natural impulse is to figure it out on my own or fight through it on my own.
But the best thing is to hide under the shadow of His wings. “Because you have been my help, therefore in the shadow of your wings I will rejoice.”
Trusting in Him,
