hidden in the shadow

Friday, January 21, 2011

One of my favorite scriptures... He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most high God shall abide under he shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord He is my refuge, my fortress my God in Him will I trust. That sums it up for me. I just refuse to let anything pull me out of this hiding place, this safe place, place of rest. I have a daughter we named Kerrington and I am reminded of the moments when it is raining or windy outside and she buries her head under my neck. I am also remimded of the times when she doesn't want to go to someone and she hides behind me and grabs my legs. In her mind, as long as she can get under my neck or behind me, nothing can touch her. I have established for her that she can trust me and no matter how big or small the situation, she is safe with me. Unbelievable!!! Hasn't our Father God done that for us? Hasn't he proven time and time again that as long as we are i his arms and hidden behind Him, nothing can harm us!!
I am so serious!! I refuse to come out! I won't allow my emotions, people or anything seperate me from his umbrella of protection!! He is God and God all by Himself and I trust Him enough to stay hidden and covered, and that's just the way it is!!!

    Sadly, when we (meaning me) venture away from His protection (I can do this myself mentality), those are the times when we least safe, least 'whole', least in control.

    Great blog! Thanks for sharing your thoughts.

    Even when things seem bleek he is there! This reminds me of the Children of Israel, they were led to the brink of the Red Sea by God's direction (cloud and fire), then God hardened the Egyptian's heart so that the would come after the Hebrews! It looked bleak to the Jews, but God was showing them and teaching them about his provision and protection. And what a marvelous example the Red Sea was to them.
    If only we would keep our trust in God and lean totally on Him in all situations! But I tend to grumble and complain like the rest of us! God has a lot of mercy.

    Such an awesome thought and comfort, that we are totally protected in His shadow. When He is first and preeminent, we are safe.

    Thanks for reminding me to take refuge in Him today!
