How many of us have felt at times in life that we are walking in Big Sister’s shadow, having to try to follow in Dad’s footsteps, or perceived ourselves to be overlooked because we’re in the shadow of others who just always seem to “outshine” us in every way?
This is such a lie! Yet we all buy into it at one time or another. Maybe you’re at that place right now?
There’s only one shadow we walk in – or rather, are required, invited, and need to walk in, and that is the shadow of the Lord our God
Those who live in the shelter of the Most High will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty. This I declare about the Lord: He alone is my refuge, my place of safety; he is my God, and I trust him. For he will rescue you from every trap and protect you from deadly disease. He will cover you with his feathers. He will shelter you with his wings. His faithful promises are your armor and protection. Do not be afraid of the terrors of the night, nor the arrow that flies in the day. Do not dread the disease that stalks in darkness, nor the disaster that strikes at midday. Though a thousand fall at your side, though ten thousand are dying around you, these evils will not touch you.
Live and rest in His shadow today!
