Psalm 31: 1,2 – “In You, O LORD, I put my trust; let me never be ashamed; deliver me in Your Righteousness. Bow down Your ear to me, deliver me speedily; be my rock of refuge, a fortress of defense to save me.” The phrase “I put my trust” pictures the action of a bird seeking refuge under its mother’s wings. The imagery of God as the rock and fortress for the believer recurs in the Psalms 91:1-2: “He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the LORD, ‘He is my refuge and my fortress; My God in Him I will trust.'”
