Psalm 91: 4 – 6, “He shall cover you with His feathers, And under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler. 5 You shall not be afraid of the terror by night,
Nor of the arrow that flies by day, 6 Nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness, Nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday.“
My grandmother had a down comforter that I loved to crawl under in the winter and cuddle up and fall asleep. I often think of that down comforter when I read this scripture. The idea of being under His wings, covered by His feathers gives me such security.
God tells us that there is NOTHING – no terror by night, no arrow by day, no pestilence in the dark, nor any destruction that He will not protect us from. It is like having every Avenger by our side 24/7 and then some. Captain America, Iron Man, The Hulk, and all those other fictional characters tied into one and still His power is greater.
So, why do we fear and fret? Why do we lay awake at night and worry? Why do we hide in the corners as if we are defeated?
Keep your focus on Him no matter what you are facing. Every problem has a solution with Him.
Today, make a commitment that you will trust in Him to handle those things which scare you in the night; which attack you in the day; which try to destroy you. Trust in Him.
