Every Friday I join a community of bloggers for Five Minute Friday. One word prompt, five minutes. Unedited. The prompt this week is … Hide.
There’s no doubt about it – the last twenty two months have been challenging in ways none of us ever expected.
While we can try to hide from the challenges and difficulties, they often can find us in the most unexpected of ways and times.
It is then we learn to put our trust in God, relying on His presence to keep and sustain us.
“Keep me as the apple of the eye; Hide me in the shadow of Your wings.” (Psalm 17:8, NASB)
Our eyes, our pupils, are delicate and in need of protection. Having had cataract surgery in the last year, I found out just how precious my eyes are to me. I now keep them protected with sunglasses whenever outside.
Hidden in the shadow of His wings, we find safety from any elements. More so, we experience the protective care of our God who loves us deeply. Hidden in the shadow of His wings, we remain secluded and unseen. It is there we can be confident nothing can touch our lives unless it has passed through the hands of God.
Sure there have been challenges and difficulties over the last twenty two months. But God has been faithful. He has kept us and brought us through. Sustaining us day by day.
His protection is only a prayer away –
“Hide me in the shadow of Your wings.”
