“Under the Shadow of Thy Wings”

Psalm 17:8 Keep me as the apple of the eye, hide me under the shadow of thy wings…

Psalm 91:4 He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.

Psalm 36:7 How excellent is thy lovingkindness, O God! therefore the children of men put their trust under the shadow of thy wings.

Under the shadow of thy wings:   Often used as a metaphor of care and protection. Also, the extremities of the earth. The extreme bounds. The highest summit… His care and love are extreme… His care and protection reaches to the extremities. Beyond all of our troubles, needs, or any earthly thing we may experience.    Many people who are not saved may say you are just hiding from life. Oh we are hiding all right, Under the shadow of the Almighty.

Shadow: Like a roof which affords shade and protection and defense; preserving, affords a safe refuge in the glowing heat.    Oh thank God as the heat of life comes we can abide under His shadow. We are covered by the blood!! We have the peace of God and the protection of God. Why would we want anything else.

The world would want you to be just like them. OH BOY what does that mean. Think about what it was like before you were saved. Turmoil, uncertainty, etc…    Oh Thank God for His loving kindness that does not keep us the way we were!!    If you are not under His protection, peace, & loving kindness, get there today. He has provided a way to get there through Jesus Christ and what He has accomplished at the Cross. For God so loved the world… John 3:16
