DEVOTION: “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
This is an incredible image. The father covering us, protecting us. There was a video that went viral a few years back about a mother hen who covered her chicks from the rain. Such a selfless and beautiful act. Here’s the video:
Such a beautiful thing to see.
The Psalmist here is teaching us about God’s faithfulness and protection over us. He continues to hold us in His arms and keep us sheltered under his wings.
He says that His faithfulness will be our shield and rampart. A rampart is a defensive wall of a castle or walled city, having a broad top with a walkway and typically a stone parapet. It’s basically a pretty indestructible place to be. To think of God as a rampart, a shield in the midst of trouble and uncertainty is a comforting thing to say the least.
We are all in the midst of trouble and uncertainty. Once again Moses is putting us at ease and telling us of the strength, faithfulness and wonderfulness of our God.
Today. Be assured that God is a rampart surrounding us. Protecting us and holding us under His wings. Praise be to God.
