Keep me as the apple of Your eye; Hide me under the shadow of Your wings, (Psalm 17:8 NKJV)
I love the word picture that David paints in this verse. I find such comfort in knowing that we are protected under the wings of our Almighty God, our Abba Father, our Daddy (as we Southern girls like to call him). When the storms of life come at us hard, the wind and rain are relentlessly trying to move us, there is nothing like crawling up in Daddy’s arms. No place that I would rather be than enveloped in His love and protection.
Psalms 91:4 is a verse I often like to hide out in, “He shall cover me with his feathers, and under his wings I will trust: his truth is my shield and buckler.” Comfort and protection can be found in our Father like we can find it in no other place. Sometimes little birds or ducks are so tucked away under the wings of protection that you can hardly see them. I want to be so hidden in my Daddy that all you can see of me is Him!
I enCOURAGE you to hide under the wings of our Daddy today. You will find rest in our Strength and Shield. The storms, big or little, will soon pass and the glorious light will come. We should then go out, shake our little tail feathers and give Him all praise and glory.
