Refuge

Psalm 17:7-8
7 Wondrously show Your lovingkindness, O Savior of those who take refuge at Your right hand From those who rise up against them. 8 Keep me as the apple of the eye; Hide me in the shadow of Your wings

In times of danger, chickens will hide their chicks underneath their wings.  I have heard stories of chickens doing this in a fire.  They die in the fire, but their chicks live because of this sacrifice.  God will do the same for us.  He brings in close and protects us.

He keeps us safe and will protect us from sin, if we stay there.  It is when we stray from God, we will more vulnerable to sin.  We need to plant ourselves in God.  Do not stray from Him, but stay connected.  I vine not connected will whither.  Jesus said that He sis the vine and if we stay connected to Him we will bear much fruit.  Apart from Him we will not.  Great and wondrous is our God!
