Under His Wings

Luke 13:34 34 “Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you who kill the prophets and stone those sent to you, how often I have longed to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, and you were not willing. (NIV)

If you’ve ever watched little chicks and the hen you would have notice the chicks keep coming out from under the hen and the hen continually tries to bring the chicks back under for warmth and protection.  It is that way with God.  He wants to give us the warmth of His love and protect us from harm but we keep stepping out from under His loving protection.  We allow ourselves to become distracted by material things.  The more distracted we become, the further from God we wander.  God sets things in our path to bring us back to Him but often we ignore those things.  How do we stay under His love and protection?  Once again I must express how very important it is to stay in the written word of God, His instruction book for life on this earth, the Holy Bible.  Along with those instructions we must take regular time to talk with Him and listen to Him through the Holy Spirit Who dwells in each and every believer.  The more we stay under His wings, the closer to Him we grow and the more like Him we will be.  Let us stay under the wings of our loving Father.
