Are you covered in His Feathers?

Are you covered in His Feathers?

Many years ago I was told a story about a woman who was walking down a sidewalk in her town, headed for home from her local church after the weekly Bible study she had just attended was over.  Her leisurely walk in the warm summer’s evening was interrupted only by her musings on the subject matter for that evening which had been “God’s Protection” taken from Psalms 91.  As she walked, she became aware of a presence behind her.  An uncomfortable feeling came with it and she decided to walk a little faster.  The “presence” walked a little faster too.  She realized before long that there were at least two older teenage boys, possibly more, following her, intent on some sort of mayhem and she then began to pray…out loud!

It happened that she was from a Pentecostal church and, as was her practice, she prayed in the Holy Spirit…in tongues as the Holy Spirit helped her.  Then, remembering the Bible study from just a short while before, she thought about what the pastor had said, “We are covered with His feathers, and under His wings will we find refuge.”  With a loud voice she shouted, “I’m covered with feathers!  I’m covered with feathers!  I’m covered with feathers!  I’m covered with feathers!”  She probably shouted more than four times, but within minutes she turned around and found no one around her, including those teenaged boys.  They apparently had found out she was off limits and took off running!!!

Are you “covered” with His feathers?  Are you off limits to your spiritual enemies because of God’s Protective Hand on your life?  As Christians we have access to God’s protection through His Son, Jesus.  Check out the 91st Psalm and see what is available to you.  If we are obedient to His Word and trust and have confidence in Him, we can experience this same kind of protection.  Let’s get under His feathers and find refuge!
