When Storms Are Brewing

Run for cover!

He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart. Psalm 91:4

The parallel made here is comparing us—God’s children—to small birds, protected by the wings of their mother. When danger or inclement weather is near, baby birds find safety and refuge beneath their mother’s protective wings. A mother hen would never consider leaving her chicks unprotected. Likewise, God is faithful to cover us, provide us refuge, and be our shield and fortress.

Two words that are easy to overlook in this verse are, his faithfulness. Notice, it’s not our faithfulness, but His. When we think about God and our life that is centered on Him, we tend to think about our faith and faithfulness, but all too often, we fail to consider His faithfulness toward us.

God will never leave us or forsake us. He is faithful to protect us and shield us if we allow Him to. Too many times, we retreat within our problems, rather than taking them to God. Like baby chicks when thunder signals a coming storm, we should run to Him, for He is awesomely able to see us through each and every situation we might encounter.

When troubles come, run to Him.
