Under His Wings

The salvation of the righteous is from the Lord; He is their strength in time of trouble. And the Lord helps them, and delivers them; He delivers them from the wicked, and saves them, Because they take refuge in Him.
Psalm 37:39,40

If I want…

His salvationHis strength in time of troubleHis helpHis deliverance,

…then I must take refuge in Him. These things are found nowhere else but “under His wings”–in His presence.

Lord, I’ve never been surrounded by soft wings; I really don’t know how that would feel. Maybe like your daddy’s lap, or snuggling under the covers when it’s awfully cold in the bedroom, or like a feather bed, or sitting in a dark car looking out at a rainstorm that has stopped the traffic.

I can imagine it, though . . . the warmth, the softness, the feeling of safety and security. Why, oh why, do I rush around outside in the angry elements, afraid and struggling, depending on my strength and my wisdom to protect me and mine? I remember You cried one time because people refused to come nestle, to let You take care of them.

Lord, lift Your wings . . .

I’m crawling under.
