“I will take refuge in the shadow of your wings until the disaster has passed.”
Here above lies the mysterious believers of Christ do not stop believing in the midst of troubles.
Nowhere does God promise us we will have peace and smooth sailing on this earth because of Him. In fact, He tells us the world is broken and as lights in darkness, we may find more trouble than others because of Him.
So, why believe?
I have many answers for that, but I’ll focus on this Psalm.
Being a follower of Christ, a child of God, we are not delivered from disaster, but we do have the Lord’s hand over us through every step of our life.
No others can say there is the creator of the universe protecting them through chaos, giving them peace and comfort through pain, even giving them clarity in darkness and confusion.
That’s what He does for us and so much more!
In disaster, take shelter in the shadow of His wings, not to keep the disaster from happening, but to draw closer to Him, to get you through it with your heart and soul intact.
