THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS
When I was a boy, we lived with Grandma and Grandpa in the country.
I remember Grandma's "chicken yard."
When a storm would come up, you could see the hens clucking to their "bitties."
The baby chicks would run up to their mother, and the mother would spread her wings and cover them.
He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust:
his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.
Perhaps Jesus was referring to the Scripture above when He made His "triumphal march" into Jerusalem the week before He was crucified.
He said, "O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not!" (Matthew 23:37)
There are many Christians today that do very little because of fear!
As Jesus said, they "would not."
Usually, fear is hidden behind cloudy statements like "let's be sure this is best for ALL,"
and "let's make sure we calculate all the risks."
Don't let those kinds of statements deter you from doing what's right for God!
When we live in obedience to our Lord, He speaks to us and calls us under His PROTECTION!!
If we are doing something for our Lord, then HE'LL take care of the risks!
And He'll also give us the wisdom to do what's best for ALL.
When we "rest under" His closeness, Jesus will give us TRUST!
His "truth" becomes our "shield" and "buckler" to surround us!
Come under "the wings" of Christ today, and remain under His PROTECTION!
Learn and RESIDE in His TRUTH!
