“In Safety Beneath His Wings” (Psalm 91: 1, NEB) by Carley Evans

If God is an eagle, then you are safe beneath His wings as “He covers you with His pinions.” (Psalm 91: 4) Here you find shelter as you “lodge under the shadow of the Almighty.” God is your “safe retreat.”

“A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand close at hand, but you it does not touch; His truth is your shield and your rampart. With your own eyes you see all this.” (Psalm 91: 7, 8)

If God is an eagle, “He Himself snatches you away from the fowler’s snare;” and “you do not fear the hunter’s trap by night.” (Psalm 91: 3, 5) You do not fear as you “live in the shelter of the Most High.”

God Himself says, “You see with your own eyes…how I carry you on eagles’ wings and bring you here to Me. If only you now listen to Me and keep My covenant, then out of all peoples you are my special possession; for the whole earth is Mine.” (Exodus 19: 4 – 5)

“Make the Most High your refuge.” (Psalm 91: 9)
