Have you tried the shadow of His wings?

This photograph captures three birds. The first two are obvious; the third one is entering their shelter. Can you spot it?

The snow-blanketed juniper in our back yard is one of many spreading varieties around our Colorado home that offer dry haven to rabbits, birds, and squirrels.

These tree/bushes spread their branches like wings, bending with the weight of the snow while sheltering small creatures that flourish in spite of harsh weather.

God offers a similar protection to His children, and lately I have been burrowing deep and close.

David, the great king wrote:

Because you are my help,

I sing in the shadow of your wings.

My soul clings to you;

Your right hand upholds me. Ps 63:7, 8

Sometimes the birds sing and I can’t see them. They’re hiding in the branches of their safe haven.

How great a God we have who would give to His people the shelter and protection of Himself.

Try it – sing in the shadow of His wings.

Have you ever pressed so close that you felt the feathers of His presence?
