  7. Shadow of His Wings

"In the Shadow of His Wings"

Yesterday, as I was thinking of God's grace, a Scripture came to mind. "...in the shadow of thy wings will I make my refuge..." (Psa 57:1).

Jesus, speaking of Jerusalem, said that He would have gathered the people as a hen gathers her chicks and they would not. (Luke 13:34).

The above Scripture reminds me of when I grew up on the farm. When the hen would sense or see danger, she would cluck loudly to her chicks, and they would run to her, scurrying to hide under her wings.

O, if I would only listen with ears not dull of hearing and run swiftly to my Father – finding safety from this storm and grace and mercy in my time of need, (is there ever a time that we are not in need of God’s grace and mercy?)

For God, (Jesus) paid such a high price for the Vail to be ripped from the top to the bottom-separation from each other. Is this why we fear separation from others, especially those we care for the most?

God said in Genesis, in the very beginning that it was not good for man to be alone, and He knew this for there has always been the Father-Son- and Holy Spirit, together, until that day on Calvery when the Son was missing, and even nature would not look, the sun hid its face, and there was darkness.

So, like those chicks let me flee to the safety of my Father’s wings until this calamity passes, as does a thunderstorm when the chicks hide under the feathers of their mother wings, I am safe from the storm.

"When thou passes through the waters, I will be with thee, and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee" (Isaiah 42;2).]

I may become damp, but not drowned as those chicks that did not hear the warning; so give me ears to hear and a heart to receive what the Spirit is saying to me.

I can trust God to hide me under the shadow of his wings where there is protection, and because God has been my help I can rejoice in the shadow of his wings

"Lets Teach Our Children to Love"

Why is it so difficult for our educators and society, in general, to understand that love and respect for one another taught from a young age can solve much of the world's hostility and social problems!

"Train up a child in the way he should go, And when he is old he will not depart from it" (Prov 22:6).

Love is the answer!
