In His Nest – Scriptures on Refuge or Safety in the Lord

Picture from


A nest can be defined as a “place of safety or refuge”.
I am comforted daily by the knowledge that I am in God’s nest.  Psalm 139 for me is the ultimate scripture defining how close God will always be to us.

Psalm 139:9-10

If I rise on the wings of the morning
if I settle on the far side of the sea,
10 even there your hand will guide me,
your right hand will hold me fast.
