Psalm 91 is one of my favorite psalms. "He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High, shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in Him will I trust." A delightful beginning, I must say, encouraging one to live close to God, close enough that His shadow will fall on us. It goes on to say in verse 4 that "He will cover you with His feathers," something that has always intrigued me especially in the light of a vision I feel the Lord gave me long ago.
I was praying and was transformed into a spirit-being soaring with wings as a eagle,
rising above all my earthly problems and then I see His open arms. I fly towards
Him with growing peace and yet excitement. As I approach Him, His arms raise
to engulf me and I see the glory of heaven around about Him but my focus is clear.
As I land at His feet His arms become wings of feathers, just as a mother hen would
engulf her young. Such safety, such love, such comfort.
I've rarely shared this with anyone but maybe if you can see the Lord as I do, you too can feel His feathers comfort you.
