Doesn’t it feel awesome on a hot summer day when a cloud drifts in front of the sun and tempers its blazing heat? Likewise, when we are in the heat of our daily battles, the shadow of God’s love is a wonderfully refreshing thing. But the greater thing is, we don’t have to wait for God’s shadow to pass over us; we can slip into the shade of it anytime we want. In fact, we can dwell there constantly.
Unfortunately, we tend to rush ahead of God’s plans for our lives, putting ourselves smack dab in the middle of life’s troubles.
He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High Will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. Psalm 91:1
