Shelter conjures up so many images:
A refuge for vulnerable people.
Somewhere unwanted animals can be cared for: cat and dog home, donkey sanctuary….
An umbrella turning inside-out in stormy weather.
Someone shivering in the cold and rain in a bus shelter.
Jesus is my shelter. The Bible says He is my place of refuge and a strong tower I can run to for safety. Like a bird gathering its chicks under its wings against predators, I find safety in the shelter of Jesus’ wings.
This isn’t just poetic language and nice pictures. Jesus is my shelter during life’s storms. He keeps me safe from the enemy. One day, Jesus will be my shelter from God’s judgment and He guarantees me a permanent home with Him. Imagine living with Jesus for ever. Whoop whoop! He’s the best!
