UNDER THE SHADOW OF HIS WINGS
I know there has always been opposition/disdain for God and the idea of there being a God. We only to have to look in the pages of the Bible to see that. From today’s reading in Psalm 57, we see that David was pursued by his enemies, men who only had evil thoughts of ending his life because of his trust in God. These men are described as lions and ravenous beasts, men with teeth of spears and arrows. In my lifetime I’ve seen the increasing scorn and disdain for those who call themselves a Christian. Art, education, business – all walks of life have increasingly squeezed out God because of their hatred for Him. As a result we too suffer the effects of these actions. It shouldn’t surprise us in the least. We, just as David, should take refuge “under the shadow of His wings.” God will keep and protect us through these times!
