The book of Psalm shares this amazing promise with us: “He will cover us with His feathers and under His wings, we will find refuge” (Psalm 91:4).
Of course, we instantly think of Jesus in Matthew 23:37 where He’s on the hill overlooking the city of Jerusalem and He's crying, He's weeping, “Oh, Jerusalem! How often would I have gathered you under my wings like a hen gathers her chicks?” What's He saying? That He wanted to protect them and shepherd them but they wouldn't let Him. They wouldn't come to Him, they followed that false theologian Frank Sinatra and said, “I’ll do it my way!”
When we come to Him, “His faithfulness will be our shield and our bulwark.” (Psalm 91:4). Meaning that He literally puts a fortress around us. And it’s important to remember that, He doesn't just put a shield up around us, He IS the shield around us!
At this point in the verses the Psalmist almost cries out, I almost picture him grabbing the person he's talking to and going, “Do you hear me?! Do you see what I'm trying to tell you that God is offering to be to you?”
Loved one, when you come to know Him and experience Him, you will not fear!
