Safety under the Wings of the LORD!

 

“He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust”-Ps 91:4

Praise the Lord for his Grace. Above verses is a very famous promise, most of us know. The wings here refer to wings of the hen. Hen is the One of the bird which dwells on the land. By the creation of God, All the birds fly and their dwelling place nest is upon the tree, rock, or cliff of a mountain. There are few birds like kiwi, ostrich, emu, hen, which dwells on the ground, even though they are birds they cant completely fly, they can fly only up to 10 to 15 feet height. They walk around and move for food, water and breeding, throughout life time they are on the ground. Let’s study about the Hen, hen lives on the land, breeds, lays egg, after hatching for 21 to 24 days the young ones comes out. It’s the duty of the hen to feed & protect its young ones. Usually birds which has nests on trees have less predators, hen which do not make nest, but dwells on ground has more predators like snake, cat, eagle, mongoose etc. Whenever the enemies come, mother hen make signaling sound call, all the chicks’ runs under the wings of its mother, hence the enemies cannot catch the chickens. Also some times the mother hen flies and fights with cats, eagle, crow and protects its young ones.

Under His Wings

Spiritually this refers to us, when we are under the wings of LORD, the enemies cannot touch us. In times of troubles we need to take refuge under the wings of God  Deut 33:27 – “The eternal God is thy refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms:” Enemy may attack us in many ways like sickness, financial crisis, witchcraft, accidents ,discourage us comparing to the life of others. But our God protects, cares and leads us in the way that we must go.

Wings of the birds are a very special creation by God. It gives shade for young ones during the hot day time and warmth during Cold night time. The under portion of the wings are very soft and makes the little ones very comfortable and luxury. The Wings can be compared to the commandments of the LORD. when we follow it, even though trials, tribulation, sufferings may come, But we will be safe, we will not get destroyed. As the wings are soft, the commandment given by our LORD Jesus Christ are also soft “Thou shall love the Lord thy God with all thy, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.”- matt 22:37,39.

When the predators come and attack, the young ones need to go under the wings of its mother. But if it fails to do so, then the predators will catch them and kill them. The predator in our life may be marrying non Christian, working O.T job to earn more money, even though we may get sufficient salary, watching television,, visiting tourist place spending time in vain things of this world. Anything which hinders, separates our fellowship with saints of God and church, will Drive us away from Jesus. Hence we need to be vigilant about the devices of satan .we must abide with Jesus Christ.

Upon His Wings

“As an eagle stirreth up her nest, fluttereth over her young, spreadeth abroad her wings, taketh them, beareth them on her wings:” -Deut 32:11. “I bare you on eagles’ wings, and brought you unto myself”-Exo 19:4.Here we read about the Wings of eagle. there are two peculiar qualities of eagles wings, one the eagles wings makes it to fly very high compared to all other birds, second thing the eagles bears its young ones on its wings and teaches them to fly. This refers to our holiness. Our Lord Jesus not led a Holy life, but teaches us to live holy life.

By His Wings

Exo 19:4 also shows us how God delivered the Israelites and brought them to promised land- Canaan. Wings can also be compared to the Grace of God. On the covenant box, there are two angles sitting on the throne of Grace, their wings are already raised up, ready to fly. It’s not our ability, wisdom, knowledge, or spiritual standard makes us worthy for the rapture. But it is the Grace of God which makes us worthy to reach our promised land New Jerusalem and Zion-

Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life. (jude 21st verse).

The Lost Coin !

“Either what woman having ten pieces(coin) of silver, if she lose one piece(Coin), doth not light a candle, and sweep the house, and seek diligently till she find it?

And when she hath found it, she calleth her friends and her neighbours together, saying, Rejoice with me; for I have found the piece which I had lost.”  Luke 15:8-9

This lost coin is we (I and you). Once we were lost in this world following things of this world. We didn’t know there is a living loving God Jesus Christ. As a coin is non living thing , there was no life in our  spiritual life. We were not content, in our education, job, money or family life. Nothing was not able to satisfy us, but when our loving Jesus found us, There came life in our lives, We got a peace, joy, satisfaction and true happiness that this world cannot give. Thank Jesus Christ our beloved saviour, who found us , saved us, made worthy to be with Him in eternity. Let us pray to God receive His Grace to be caught up in His coming…

Hope never dies

” I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the LORD.” Psa 118:17

The above verses is a very beautiful versus. It hope to the people in hopeless situation. Our trial may be sickness, financial crisis, depression, exam failure, joblessness , anything may be our problem which drives us to end our lives, But we must not die, our hope, trust, faith in God will make us to succeed in our life. One thing we note here is, king David encourages in himself towards God. There may be situation where no one is there to encourage or comfort but still our Lord Jesus will strengthen and comfort us.

The strongest promise

Isa 49:15 “Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? yea, they may forget, yet will I not forget thee.”

Our beloved ones may forget us but our creater  God never forgets us. God have graven our names on His palms which cannot be erased. We in His mighty hands no one can pluck us away from Him. The greatest love on this world is the love of mother on her child.God reminds us even though mother may forget her child but He never forget us.  It is we who forget the God many times. In times of trials we seek humanely help rather seeking God. Let God give us grace to trust only on Him.
