Psalm 91:4 (KJV) He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.
My ten month old grandniece was crawling around on my bed. It was a wondrous play land filled with new and exciting toys – from her point of view! I was constantly taking one thing out of her hands only to turn around and see she had something else that she shouldn’t have. I was determined to protect her (and my stuff) and she was just as determined to get something, anything to play with and put in her mouth.
In her fidgeting, she didn’t notice that the end of the bed had come mighty, mighty close. At the very last moment, right before she took a lethal plunge off the side of my high bed, I grabbed her t-shirt and pulled her back at the moment just in time to save her from what I know would have surely been an event that would have hurt her and possibly had us going to the emergency room. Without even knowing it she was saved from harm. She was covered and did not even think about it. Her faith in me is confident that I will not allow anything to harm her no matter how close she gets to the edge. Dangers seen and unseen are no match for her Aunt Vickie – she is covered!
I know you know by now where I am going with this. In that moment, God once again showed me that He has me covered on every side. I can inch close to the edge of this thing called life in my mind, but I will NOT fall! Why?? Cause even when I don’t see the danger, He snatches me from it and brings me back into safety! I don’t know about you but I am mighty glad that my God loves me just that much!
I must simply have the faith of a child to know my God is looking out for me. Come what may, in ALL things and through EVERY test, trial, and celebration – He’s got me covered!
I pray you catch this today! Stop worrying, no more whining, lift up your head!! There are times you probably are not even aware of that God covered you and the weapon formed did not harm you! Praise Him now for those unseen times when you didn’t even know it but He did it anyway. Bless His Name today! As you think of the things you do know of where He stepped in on time, the praise should raise even more! This gives us encouragement and strength to keep pressing! If He saved you before, He can and will save you now!
Thank You God for covering us through dangers seen and unseen. Help us to raise our faith to the level where there is no doubt at all that anything we go through is nothing in Your Hands. We are indeed sheltered under Your Wings! Amen!
Until Next Time I Will Praise God On Purpose for It ALL!!
