In the shadow of a mighty God.

Psalm 121 verse 5 says this
ď The lord himself watches over you!
The lord stands beside you as a protective shade.Ē

This got me thinking about standing in Godís shade.
If I were to take this verse in its most literal context would it mean that god stood over me and blocked out the all that would harm me.

He gives me shade in the heat of the day.

In the day to day struggles that we all have that threaten to overwhelm us we have one who is over us and giving us shade in the heat of the battle.
Coming from north Queensland where the sun has been know to cook an egg or two on the footpath this seemed a particularly good idea.
Shade.

God has promised to tower over me, watching and protecting me. Shading me.

The other thing that struck me in this verse is that if I am in Godís shade then the lord's shadow was on me and that to be in godís shadow would be awesome.

This led to me thinking on the attributes of shadows.

One, They reflect the true image but are not the image.

So as one of godís people i should be a reflection of god, recognised as being in the image of the lord. This is only done when i am in close contact with the lord and spend time in his presence and word.

Second came the thought that they are always seen in the light and always close to the original.

Even some darkness can diminish the shadow and make it unrecognisable to the original image.
Even greater reason to get rid of all my sinÖthe darkness that dulls my reflected image of Christ.

My prayer for myself is that I am so close to god that I am his shadow, never far from the father God and always in his light.
Now thatís an idea worth getting my head around.

Blessings
Kazza
