“He will cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you will find refuge; His faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.” Psalm 91:4 (NIV)
I have been through many trials, but within the past three years I have found my biggest tests of faith. Many of the things I had placed my trust in have gone south, including family, career, health, and finances. Through each obstacle I have found safety under the shadow of His wings. God has sheltered me from death, financial ruin, unemployment, and loneliness. I have found great security in His faithful promise to protect me.
The Lord’s mercies prohibited the enemy from destroying and taking my life. I was not consumed by my trial but refined. God faithfully provided all I needed to recover from a brain tumor. Tests continue to come my way but they are all manageable through the grace and mercy of my King.
Have you been struggling with a burden lately? Are you weary and are you questioning how long you must endure? God may not answer the questions of your heart today, but He does offer a place to rest under the shelter of His loving and protective wings. Why not fly up to Him and rest for a bit? His peace will renew your strength and comfort you.
“Through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness.” Lamentations 3:22-23 (NKJV)
