Under His Wings
"He shall cover you with His feathers. And under His wings you shall take refuge." Psalm 91:4
Have you ever prayed the Psalms aloud? If not, I invite you to do so. For me personally, speaking or praying the words of the psalmist brings peaceful moments, hope-filled days, and strength when I am weary. How wonderful to know that during each moment of our lives, the safest resting place we have is found under His wings. Below is the Psalm I prayed this morning, along with a meaningful song entitled, "Under His Wings" by the Sisters.
Prayer: "O, God, you are my God; earnestly I seek you; my soul thirsts for you; my flesh faints for you, as in a dry and weary land where there is no water. So I have looked upon you in the sanctuary, beholding your power and glory. Because your steadfast love is better than life, my lips will praise you. So I will bless you as long as I live; in your name I will lift up my hands. My soul will be satisfied as with fat and rich food, and my mouth will praise you with joyful lips, when I remember you upon my bed, and meditate on you in the watches of the night, for you have been my help, and in the shadow of your wings I will sing for joy. My soul clings to you; your right hand upholds me." Amen. Psalm 63:1-8 (ESV)
