When danger or inclement weather is near, baby chicks run to the shelter of their mother’s protective wings, knowing they will be safe there. The 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. He will never leave us or forsake us, and is faithful to protect us and shield us, but He cannot do either if we are not near Him. Too many times, we retreat within our problems, rather than taking them to God. We must learn to run to Him at the first sign of trouble—or, better still, remain near Him always—for He is awesomely able to see us through each and every situation we might encounter.
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
