    Safety is sure under the shadow of His wings We should take our refuge in His shadow of His wings according to psalms 91v1 so that we can secure in this world of insecurity
  • Timothy Wayne George for verse 7
    How excellent is thy lovingkindness; O God, and the children of men take refuge in the shadow of thy wings. This prayer will guide you through any trial that you may be going through. It is the same prayer that Jesus told the Jews that if Jerusalem had trusted in Him, they would be protected as the hen gathers her chickens under her wings, but you would not. Behold your house is left unto you desolate. May we not fail to trust the Lord, so that our house would not be left unto us desolate.
