A Place of Safety by Sandy James

Covered with His feathers, taking refuge under His wings… I love that picture from Psalm 91. When I visualize that, I feel safe. 

We are in a world that feels very unsafe at times.  Although terrorist attacks in the USA are not normal, the threat still looms.  Gunmen seem to appear in places one wouldn’t expect.  “Super” viruses are predicted.  An even more severe economic downturn is a possibility.

We certainly do not want to live in fear. Thankfully it is not necessary, nor is it acceptable, to do so if we live in the Kingdom of God.  The Kingdom of God consists of righteousness, joy and PEACE. (Romans 14:17) The Kingdom of God is where the power and rule of God is – that place where we allow His ways, His power, and His Word to renew our minds and change our behaviors, our beliefs and our responses to circumstances. 

Psalm 91 says ,”Because you have made the Lord who is my refuge, even the Most High, your dwelling place, no evil shall befall you nor shall any plague come near your dwelling for He shall give His angels charge over you, to keep you in all your ways.”  Do we really believe that?

There are numerous testimonies from soldiers who experienced safety during war because they believed what God said in Psalm 91. These verses hold many promises of deliverance from harm. If we can just believe in the truth and faithfulness of God Almighty, who loves us so, we will see His promises become reality in our lives.

Covered with His feathers, sheltered under His wing, we are safe in Him.



  1. What a beautiful photo to reflect our relationship with God the Father! Thanks for the reminder...

    1. I agree, Jarm. So thankful for the wonderful photographers out there who are willing to share their gifts. They "speak" of God without saying a word!

  2. Sandy, I love this devotion! We are "covered" and can live without fear because of it. Thank God for his protection, no matter what happens!

    Thank you for sharing this.

    P.S. Good post before Hurricane Sandy hits. (Does this mean you are a whirlwind of words....LOL)
