Today is Your Best Day Because of God's Wings
"The LORD repay your work, and a full reward be given you by the LORD God of Israel, under Whose wings you have come for refuge." Ruth 2:12 NKJV
God uses the term "wings" to help you understand more fully what it means to have His presence throughout your day, and His covering over you moment by moment. The Bible speaks about the wings of a mother hen, the wings of an eagle, and the wings (or fringes) of a garment, and applies them to the ways God is working in your life and watching over you. God's wings apply to His care, His protection, His health, His safety, and His strength.
As your covering, God's wings shield you and cast a shadow over you. His shadow is like the welcomed relief provided by a shade tree on a hot summer's day. God's wings shade you from the damaging rays of adversity and from the heat of every trial and calamity.
As an expression of His care, God's wings draw you close to His heart. In His care He knows your every movement, senses your every need, hears your every cry, and feels your every heartbeat.
As an expression of His protection, God's wings shield you from the searching eye of every prey that seeks to devour or destroy you. He is your protector against every scheme of the enemy, against every lie and deception, against every luring temptation, and against every enticement that would try to move you away from His heart.
As an expression of His health, God's wings are an extension of His tender compassion. His purpose is to keep you healthy and strong, well fed and nurtured, vibrant and full of life. When you are weak or ill, He wraps His wings around you as a mother would wrap her child in a blanket. He assures you of His love, draws you close, keeps you warm, feeds you with the food of His faithfulness, renews your vitality, and causes you to grow strong. "But to you who fear My name the Sun of Righteousness shall arise with healing in His wings," says Malachi 4:2 (NKJV).
As an expression of His strength, God's wings carry you to new heights, to new adventures of faith, to new discoveries of His majesty, and to new vistas of grace that your heart can explore and delight in.
Today you are under God's extreme watch-care. He calls you to draw near and trust fully in the covering of His wings. You are the Lord's delight and the apple of His eye. Today is your best day because your life couldn't be in better hands or under better care.
