The Shadow of the Almighty

I have always loved to watch shadows of clouds hugging the terrain of the earth or even just moving across my living room floor. I giggle when the cat looks up with an irritated look as the sunshine she is basking in is taken away by a shadow of a cloud.

I have been living under the shadows lately. Shadows of War, Shadows of Worry, Shadows of Fear...and I did not even realize it. My eyes have been drawn instantly to headlines in the paper about new incurable viruses, chemical and biological warfare, terrorism, etc. I did not realize I was frightened by them. I would say to myself, “Never in Wyoming,” and put my mind on something else. But the Lord knew shadow of the fear hung over my heart. I guess I was too afraid to even acknowledge it to myself.

There have been four times the Lord has put the phrase “Shadow of the Almighty” in front of me this month. This caused me to research it, and I was led to Psalm 91. Then to top this all off, and to bring it all home for me, I opened a box of birthday cards that I ordered. The company I order from includes two free postcards in each box. I never know what they will be like. As I brought them out of the box, I had to just stop and stare at what was in my hands...another Gift from the Lord.

The card said, “I hope you know there is Shelter from the storm. Shelter under the shadow of the Almighty. Ps.91”

My heart has been blessed with His Peace and knowledge of His complete protection. I am resting under the Shadow of the Almighty now. I will be safe. Each of us is given this enormous, powerful shadow too, should we choose to accept it, please join me.

Ps. 91: 1-6
“He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, ‘He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.’ Surely he will save you from the fowler’s snare and from the deadly pestilence. He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart. You will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day, nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness nor the plague that destroys at midday.”


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
