Psalm 91:3-4 NIV 2011
Surely he will save you from the fowler’s snare and from the deadly pestilence. He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
God remains with His people. He rescues them from harmful human enemies. Proverbs 6:5, “Free yourself, like a gazelle from the hand of the hunter, like a bird from the snare of the fowler.” God shielded the Hebrews in Egypt when He sent the plague among the Egyptians before Pharaoh let them leave. The Lord’s hand always covers His people. Psalm 36:7, “How priceless is your unfailing love, O God! People take refuge in the shadow of your wings.” God’s shield of protections is ever present. Isaiah 31:5b, “I guard it day and night so that no one may harm it.” Faithful God saves and shields His faithful.
Reflecting on the times in my life when I wasn’t walking with the Lord, I can still see His faithful hand leading me back to fellowship with Him. Walking with family and friends as they walked into eternity, He covered each of them with His feathers while keeping them tucked under His wings. Called to pray for His people, I see Him faithfully answer those prayers. He’s my shield and rampart while He protects me daily in this crazy world in which we reside. God faithfully shields this saved sinner.
How is God shielding you today?
Faithfully shielded by God,
