His faithfulness will be your
shield and rampart.
Under His Wings You Will Find Refuge – Psalm 91:4
He will cover you with His feathers,
and under His wings you will find refuge;
His faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
We will have the urge to run away from many things in life. We run because of fear. We run because of anger. We run because of indifference. Sometimes we run hoping that someone will chase after us … secretly hoping someone cares enough to pursue us. Whatever the case may be, we believe that if we run away the difficulty will somehow be gone when we return. Which is not the case.
The question isn’t whether or not to run away. Running away will not solve our problems. Rather, the question should be Who are we running to? God knows you personally and He knows what you are going through. Your life matters to Him because He created it; and no matter what you are going through it is not beyond repair. Especially with God. Nothing is beyond repair with the Lord. That is why He reminds you today to run to Him. He promises to be your shelter and protection; to cover you with His wings and show you the way. He promises to meet you wherever you are and give you the peace, joy and light of life you desire. So don’t run away today. Instead, run to God.
What a faithful Father You are, God. We are grateful for Your constant love, protection and shelter from all the things that could go wrong in our lives and in the world. With You, we know that we are forever safe and loved no matter what we are facing.
