In the Shadow of His Wings

I believe many of us will remember playing this fun and exciting game as a child - Eagle Catch Chick or better known as lao ying zhua xiao ji. In the game, one of us would play the Eagle, and one the mother hen who would keep her arms outstretched to protect her brood of chicks (a line of squealing, frantic little friends) against the eagle who would try all ways to catch one of the chicks. Darting left, and then right, and then chasing the whole line in circless, hoping to break up the line so that 'it' would be able to 'swoop' down on the frightened chicks! 

I enjoyed that game - it was both scary and thrilling at the same time, whether I was playing the eagle, chick or mother hen. Playing the mother hen, I remember frantically trying to shield my brood behind me, stretching my arms as widely as they could go, yet somehow or other, after some tiring running around, my outstretched arms would grow tired and keeping them up to protect the chicks would get harder and harder with each passing minute.

How wonderful that God, our Father would never tire of protecting us. Psalm 91:4 tells us that He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge. In fact, this is repeated in so many Bible verses. 

We can trust that our Lord will continue to protect us and shield us against the enemy. Indeed, instead of being cast in the villain's role in the children's game, the eagle is often a symbol of strength and renewal in the Bible, as seen in  Isaiah 40:31: Those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Hallelujah!

Inspired by Psalm 17:8 (NIV), 

Keep me as the apple of your eye;
hide me in the shadow of your wings,
