“He shall cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler.” Psalms 91:4
God wants us to find refuge in him just like baby birds seek refuge under their mother’s wing. A baby bird nestles under its mother for protection and comfort. The place of safety in our crazy world is close to Jesus’ heart. When He was riding into Jerusalem during his earthly ministry, Jesus mourned over Jerusalem in Matthew 23:37, “How often I wanted to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but you were not willing!”
Jesus longs to draw us close; we just have to cooperate! When we draw close to God, He covers and protects us. While we should use common sense and avoid dangerous situations, we simply do not have the wisdom or foresight to completely keep ourselves from harm. As a loving father, God has his eye on every potential danger to us and strives to protect us.
