Under His Wings

~Have you ever wondered about being "under His wings"? I have....I wonder about a lot of things, and one of them is what it would have been like to have had an earthly father who was really there for me....loving and who would call me on the phone, just to ask how his girl was doing. I watch fathers with their daughters...and wonder, "What would it have been like?"
~My birth father didn't acknowledge that I was his. My adoptive father did what he knew to do...but just didn't make it over the hurdles of his own past pains....I believe he did the best he knew how....but it left a "daddy void" in my heart.
~So when I come across scripture which tells me that "though my father and mother forsake me, the Lord will take care of me" (Ps. 27:10)...well, that hits home. I hang onto Him and His Promise that He is, INDEED, my Daddy.
~And in my wondering and pondering, the Lord answered some of my questions about His being my Abba, Papa, Daddy, Da-Da, to me...for there came a day when He interrupted my thoughts and asked.....
"My Dear Daughter, Would you like to know what it is like to be under My wings? What do you see when you watch March of the Emperor Penquins? Watch the daddy penguin with his baby; for that is what I do with you."
~I watched in fascination how the daddy penguin took the egg and held it fast between his feet - under his belly - "UNDER HIS WINGS"....When he moved, the egg moved with him. After the baby penguin emerged from his shell, the daddy continued to hold his precious treasure between his feet...still under his belly...under his wing. Again, when he turned, the baby turned. Daddy penguin held his little one tight to his body for safekeeping from the extreme cold and predators.
~I began to get a deeper revelation of His love and His protection....
Psalm 91:1 (Amplified) "He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall remain stable and fixed under the shadow of the Almighty [Whose power no foe can withstand]." v. 4 "He will cover you with His pinions, and under His wings shall you trust and find refuge; His truth and His faithfulness are a shield and a buckler."
Thank-You, Daddy...Please continue to help me to grasp the awesomeness of Your love! (Ephesians 3:17-19) ~You are the Only One Who knows me completely and where the broken places are. Daddy, I give You my heart. You are My Healer....You are My Daddy.

  1. I love it when the Lord goes out of His way to bring a concept to life in our hearts and minds. I always associate abiding with being under His wings - draw us nearer, Lord!
