Psalm 57:1b I will hide beneath the shadow of your wings until the danger passes by.
When I read this it makes me smile. It actually makes a warm feeling engulf my body. I think if cold wind and rain, a storm coming and a mighty Eagle coming in to land, in all it's power, gently on the nest of it's babies. Surrounding those massive wings around those sweet babies where all they feel is warmth. I imagine too as they get a little older and are walking around outside the nest and a storm comes...they go running to their protector and snuggle in until trouble passes. They are not afraid once they get under the protection of those mighty wings.
So often we don't rest in the shadow of the wings of God when trouble comes. We have to peek our heads out and see if there is anything we can do. The the wind comes and sweeps us away. Sometimes so far it is hard to find our way back to God. We so must learn to be like the baby Eagles and rest in God's protection when trouble comes. Giving everything to Him...waiting for Him to open His wings and tell us that trouble has passed. I bet then the storm has passed for those baby Eagles they are all rested ready to go out again and enjoy the world. We can get ourselves in such a state that we are exhausted when the storm passes. When all we needed to do is rest in God while he looks after us.
