He shall cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler.
Fear is an overwhelming emotion that can take hold of us and cause irrationality to the point that we’re no longer dealing with reality. In fact, sometimes we can be more devastated by fear than the very thing we’re afraid of.
Psalm 91:4 tells us, “He shall cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler” (NKJV).
God will put His wings around us. He will protect us. And because of this, the psalmist is saying, we don’t have to be afraid. Why? Because He’s with us.
In addition, verses 9 and 10 include a promise: Because you have made the Lord, who is my refuge, even the Most High, your dwelling place, no evil shall befall you (NKJV).
As we look at a frightening world, we can have courage—not because of who we are, but because God is with us.
