Wings

September 7, 2010 Donna New

God, Your faithful love is so valuable that people take refuge in the shadow of Your wings. Psalm 36:7

A lot of people say “God’s a guy in heaven waiting to strike me with lightning!” or at least  ruining their life with rules. “Don’t do this! Don’t do that!” He’s kind of a dull, joyless, mean old man to them.

David, the gentleman who wrote this Psalm knew God inside and out. He talked to God about everything. When he was angry, when he had fear, when he was crying he told God about it. And God listened intently and answered David’s prayers.

God is Someone we can talk to and when we’re lonely or fearful or just want to talk we can hide under the shadow of His wings. And the reason is that His love is so valuable and so faithful. That doesn’t sound like a mean, joyless guy to me. He really isn’t that way.
