O The Riches Of Taking Refuge “In The Shadow Of Your Wings”
Today’s Word of Encouragement From Wayne:
“How precious is Your lovingkindness, O God! And the children of men take refuge in the shadow of Your wings. They drink their fill of the abundance of Your house; and You give them to drink of the river of Your delights. For with You is the fountain of life; in Your light we see light”
Once more we see David’s reference to “the shadow of Your wings” as being descriptive of his understanding about his own personal spiritual tabernacle of fellowship with God.
In this day, when we minister to the Lord in His presence, we are taking refuge “in the shadow of Your wings.” In this place, as David saw it, we drink our fill “of the abundance Your house.”
When we minister to God in His presence we are in God’s house, which is within us now, and this is where we spiritually drink the living water of Jesus Christ which springs up within us to life eternal (John 4: 14).
So, under “the shadow of Your wings” is where God’s house is, which is where we drink from “the river of Your delights.”
More specifically, under “the shadow of Your wings” is God’s house with a river in it, of delights, for us to drink our fill from.
Also, “under the shadow of Your wings” is “the fountain of life,” and our beholding of all of these wonderful blessings, in spirit and in truth, is accomplished within us as we draw near to minister to our Lord, because, “in Your light we see light.”
Someone could read all of this and say “I don’t see any of it.” In order to see these things, we need to get ourselves under the shadow God’s wings so we may see all of this, for it is only in His light that we see this light.
David had a beautifully, spiritually, vivid way of describing the reality of what he received from God when he was in His presence. May God give you this same vivid reality of these riches today, within you, as you “take refuge in the shadow of Your wings.” Hallelujah!
