I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” 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. NIV
This entire Psalm is full of reminders not to worry.
All of the themes that I’ve been looking at are here — trust, refuge, salvation.
I love the image that “he will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge.” I got a note from a pastor once, and he signed it, “Under His Wings,” in the place where one might put “Sincerely.” That made a big impression on me, but, I did not find this specific verse that it must have come from until this morning.
The Message translates verse 2: “Say this: “God, you’re my refuge. I trust in you and I’m safe!” MSG
I am rejoicing in the promise of these verses today.
