As I was praying Sunday morning, I saw the LORD’s outstretched wing. Beneath the wing was an entrance into another world. There it was lush and green and peaceful with a waterfall. People were resting and enjoying the beauty, being refreshed, in the shadow of His wing. While He was covering people with one arm/wing, the other was engaged in a battle, a “fight for the fulfillment of His word.” Then I saw a person come out from under the shadow and join the LORD in battle. It was as if that person was sufficiently rested/strengthened, had matured, and was ready to partner with the LORD to fight for the fulfillment of His purposes.
Last night I was impressed to turn to Psalm 57. (Sometimes these impressions to turn to certain Scriptures are the LORD, sometimes my own imagination, but I laughed when I read the first two verses.)
1 Have mercy on me, O God, have mercy!
I look to you for protection.
I will hide beneath the shadow of your wings
until the danger passes by.
2 I cry out to God Most High,[a]
to God who will fulfill his purpose for me.
