Under the Shadow Of The Almighty
by Diana Scothorn
Everything that happens for our good, Satan will try to pervert for evil. The devil wants to put a dark shadow to follows us in every aspect of life!
Psalms 91:1 states, “He that dwelleth in the secret place of the Most-High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.” There is safety under the Shadow of God! It goes on to say, in Psalms 23:1 “Yes, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for you are with me; your rod and your staff they comfort me.”
…walk through the shadow. The shadow has no power to stop us in our tracks! It doesn’t keep us from going forward. Interestingly enough, there are two completely different definitions for shadow, 1) darkness, especially after sunset. 2) shelter; and protection.
Satan comes immediately after the beauty of something manifested in our horizon, to cast a shadow of gloom to hinder our next step! God’s Shadow provides shelter and protection from the storm as He directs our next step. What the devil means for our harm, God will turn around for our good!
A famous preacher once said, The shadow of a dog never bit anyone! Satan will always try to make it appear worse than it is. When we trust in God and stay under His shadow, He will show us the next step, as well as the things to come!!! The shadow of doubt is from the devil and meant to paralyze our faith!
There is no demon in hell that can cast a shadow that has the power to affect our life. If I see a shadow of doubt creeping in, I know it’s nothing more than the devil with his shadow of deceptive lies! I love reminding the devil, the shadow of a dog never bit anyone! Get lost, the devil; I Abide under the protection and shadow of God Almighty!
It’s always the darkest before dawn. I’ve learned to ignore the negative shadow of gloom and doubt from the devil and take refuge in the shadow of the Almighty! God will provide a safe place to rest as I go forward with confidence that under His shadow is my assurance and protection!
