PRAYER: Continue to pray for healing. In our nation. In our world.
DEVOTION: “Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High, will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.” – Psalm 91:1
Shelter. Most are seeking this right now. Seeking shelter in our homes, apartments, condos and more. Shelter is incredibly important right now. Shelter is what keeps us from the elements, from the danger, from whatever is lurking outside in the darkness.
This Psalm focuses first on shelter. How important it is and how God provides shelter for us. We rest in the shadow of our God. He provides shelter in his shadow. He provides hope in his shadow. He provides strength in his shadown.
We normally don’t equate the darkness of a shadow with a place of light but resting in the shadow of the almighty is a light that outshines all others.
I love the photo that is accompanying this devotion. There’s this huge mother lion who is providing shelter for her cub. Her shadow is overshadowing the cub. The cub knows that he is safe in the shadow of his mother.
Today. Know that you are safe in the shadow of your Father. Know that He is here with you. Watching. Guiding. Protecting.
God. Let your shadow fall on all of us.
