I’m not sure why her ducklings had drawn near to her. Had something scared them? Was it naptime?
Whatever the reason, the protective mother and her little ones form a word picture of this promise found in Psalm 91:1-4, NIV: “He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.... [There] He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.”
Yes, under His wings, we (like the ducklings) find protection.
