God Will Cover You...

He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust. Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence. He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler. Psalm 91:1-4

Some years ago when we were contemplating which way to go with our lives in ministry, we began noticing feathers everywhere we went. Just random 'fluffs of faith' we called them.

First when we were on the praise team at our church and a fluff floated from the back of the church to the front and landed in my husband's palm. That evening when we got home, a feather laying at our threshold.

For the next few weeks finding these feathers consumed us. They were everywhere. Had God placed them there to help us focus on Him and His will for us? Were angels losing feathers in the battles to protect us? Was God leaving a trail for us to follow?

We were on the way to our next appointment and I told Frank that if we saw a feather there that it was our sign. Sure enough, we walked to the front door of the parsonage and laying there on the steps was a beautiful white feather!

So, over the years we have continued to see these wonderful works of God in our paths. It may not mean much to anyone else but, to us, they are feathers of faith and they have continued to bolster us, to remind us that our Father covers us with His love, under His wings.

Lord, today will you protect me from the harm of this world? More than ever I believe in Your protection, in Your love. Show me Your way, show me Your path for me. Protect my family and my friends. Bolster us that we might not falter. In Jesus name, Amen.
