Prayer Time - Under His Wing
Well, years ago we decided to have a go at raising chickens. That was before I decided it was cheaper to buy the eggs in the grocery store, but it was during one of these terrible, no name storms- I'm telling you, lightning and thunder and the rain was pelting sideways- and I had a mother hen that had gotten out of the coop with eight baby chicks.
So I put on those rubber boots and the rain jacket, I'm out there, it's pouring outside and I'm looking for her and I find her and she's under a Bush and all eight of those babies were tucked up under her wing. You couldn't see one of them. They had positioned themselves under her wing. They weren't being effected by the storm, by the rain, by everything going around because of where they were positioned.
In Psalm 91:4: "He shall cover you with His feathers and under His wings you shall take refuge." How beautiful is that promise? His massive arms are wrapped around you, protecting you. You can run under his covering of majesty and hide his arms of faithfulness are a shield keeping you from harm. His truth shall be your shield and buckler. Hold onto that promise today. You'll never have to worry about an attack of demonic forces at night, nor have to fear a spirit of darkness coming against you. Be afraid of the terror by night or the arrow that flies by day. You don't have to fear because you position yourself up under his wing, learning what it means to abide.
