In The Shadow

Sometimes in life everything seems completely, utterly, and totally impossible. Your circumstances seem to be like a thick black blanket surrounding you, suffocating you from catching a single breath. You cant seem to find the light at the end of that seemingly never ending tunnel. Its in these times that I always think of the countless stories in the Word where God’s people found themselves in impossible situations. The odds stacked up and with no way out the only place they could turn was Father God. So many times King David was surrounded by his enemies, at one point hiding in a cave, and every time God gave David a way to prevail. He (God) never left David hanging and always came to his rescue. In all circumstances David also knew who could save him, he never tried out of his own wit to get himself out of a bind. In ALL circumstances acknowledge the One who can bring you out of the darkness and give you a way to victory.

Never forget…

Psalm 91 (MSG)

You who sit down in the High God’s presence,
    spend the night in Shaddai’s shadow,
Say this: “God, you’re my refuge.
    I trust in you and I’m safe!”
That’s right—he rescues you from hidden traps,
    shields you from deadly hazards.
His huge outstretched arms protect you—
    under them you’re perfectly safe;
    his arms fend off all harm.
Fear nothing—not wild wolves in the night,
    not flying arrows in the day,
Not disease that prowls through the darkness,
    not disaster that erupts at high noon.
Even though others succumb all around,
    drop like flies right and left,
    no harm will even graze you.
You’ll stand untouched, watch it all from a distance,
    watch the wicked turn into corpses.
Yes, because God’s your refuge,
    the High God your very own home,
Evil can’t get close to you,
    harm can’t get through the door.
He ordered his angels
    to guard you wherever you go.
If you stumble, they’ll catch you;
    their job is to keep you from falling.
You’ll walk unharmed among lions and snakes,
    and kick young lions and serpents from the path.

14-16 “If you’ll hold on to me for dear life,” says God,
    “I’ll get you out of any trouble.
I’ll give you the best of care
    if you’ll only get to know and trust me.
Call me and I’ll answer, be at your side in bad times;
    I’ll rescue you, then throw you a party.
I’ll give you a long life,
    give you a long drink of salvation!”
