Protection

In this psalm we read that God will be our protection. Verse 1 calls God our place of safety and our fortress.
But verse 4 is my favorite verse. “You can go to him for protection. He will cover you like a bird spreading its wings over its babies. You can trust him to surround and protect you like a shield.” Have you ever seen a mother hen gather her chicks under her feathers to protect them? I have seen this happen when it was raining or when an animal was threatening the chicks. That is how God is with us. He does not want us to be afraid. God wants us to feel safe.
It is exciting to know that God wants to help us and protect us. When you face problems today, turn to God. Trust Him and ask Him to help you overcome your problems. And don’t forget to praise God for His wonderful love and protection!
