He Will Cover You with His Pinions

He Will Cover You with His Pinions

It’s so easy  for fears and doubts  to strike us.     We are just people.     We have weaknesses  and do not know  what the future holds.     As much as we try  to change things  to go our way,  much of the time  we have no control  over what happens to us.     No control creates fears  and all sorts  of doubts.     We need God’s mercy and protection.

It’s like the account  of Jesus and His disciples  in a boat,  in Matthew 8:24-27,

And behold,  there arose a great storm  in the sea,  so that the boat was covered  with the waves;  but He Himself was asleep.     And they came to Him,  and awoke Him,  saying,  “Save us, Lord;  we are perishing!”

And He said to them,  “Why are you timid,  you men of little faith?”     Then He arose,  and rebuked the winds  and the sea;  and it became perfectly calm.

And the men marveled,  saying,  “What kind of a man is this,  that even the winds  and the sea  obey Him?”

The disciples had no control  over the winds — just like we have no control  over them.     That is God’s domain.     What we have no control over,  we need  to go to our Lord  for His protection.     Without timidity,  trepidation,  or fear,  we are to go straight  to our heavenly Father — in faith — and ask the Almighty,  who loves us,  for the protection and help  we so desperately  need.

In the surety  of God’s eternal love  for all  of His children,  we can hear His answer  to our prayers  in Psalm 91:4-6,

He will cover you  with His pinions,   
And under His wings  you may seek refuge;   
His faithfulness  is a shield  and bulwark.   

You will not be afraid  of the terror  by night,   
Or of the arrow  that flies by day;   
Of the pestilence  that stalks  in darkness,   
Or of the destruction  that lays waste  at noon.

We are God’s children — under His tender care and instruction.     Our heavenly Father longs for us  to look to Him  for all our needs — just as earthly parents love  to help their children.

We don’t ever have to doubt  or fear  that God does not want  to help us.     He has been waiting  for so long  for us to learn to lean  on Him  and His love.    Let’s not keep Him waiting  any longer.

Under the almighty protection  of our heavenly Father,  we say,  “Hallelujah!     My Lord,  it is such a relief  to have You bring me  into the safety  of Your loving care.     Let me always enjoy  being near You.”
