S. O. A. P.
Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
I will take refuge in the shadow of your wings until the disaster has passed.
Saul was in hot pursuit of David and desperately wanted to kill him. David had fled to a cave for protection. While there, he cried this prayer to the Lord and said, “I will take refuge in the shadow of your wings Till The Storm Passes Over.”
Jesus used this metaphor of a mother hen gathering her chicks under her wings as He entered Jerusalem at the beginning of the Passion Week. He likened Himself to the mother hen wanting to gather Jerusalem under His wings, but Jerusalem would not let Him. There is this picture of a storm coming on the horizon. The wind begins to pick up, and things begin to be moved by the wind. Here is a family of little chicks, and suddenly mother opens her wings and gathers them in while she bows her head against the wind, “Till The Storm Passes Over.” Once it has, the little ones are saved. I’m not sure if David had this in mind or not, but he was confident in the covering power and protecting shield of the Almighty, and it was in that covering that David wanted to find refuge. What about you, today, my dear friend? Is the storm gathering in your horizon? If it is, I encourage you to run for shelter within the power of God’s mighty arms. “Till The Storm Passes Over.”
I’m asking You to lift Your wings, or arms, or whatever it is that will shield me with Your covering power because I’m running in Your direction. “Till The Storm Passes Over.” Amen
