“Under His Shadow I Shall Live”
The other morning I was immediately drawn to meditate upon Psalm 91. Thinking about how important it is to remain close to my God. Thinking about His shadow, and if I desire to remain within His shadow  I MUST  walk right beside him and stay beside Him at all times. We must always remind ourselves how easy it is to step off of His perfect path and do our own thing. It is then that we are not abiding under His shadow and perfect guidance. His wondrous Light provides His Almighty Shadow!
As we just celebrated the birth of Christ, let us reflect upon His Name being called Emmanuel which means “God with us.”     He is with us and He promises to never leave nor forsake us!
“A virgin will conceive and bear a Son, and His name will be Immanuel (which is a Hebrew name that means “God with us”.  Matthew 1:23 – The VOICE
Today I encourage you to think about walking close to your God. He is light and in Him there is no darkness. Under the shadow of the Almighty God lies security and the promise that He will keep us. I leave these scriptures with you to meditate upon as you ponder walking closely to Him.

“He who takes refuge in the shelter of the Most High will be safe in the shadow of the Almighty.”Psalm 91:1 – The Voice

“Your strong love, O True God, is precious. All people run for shelter under the shadow of Your wings.”Psalm 36:7 – The VOICE
“The Lord himself watches over you! The Lord stands beside you as your protective shade. The sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon at night. The Lord keeps you from all harm and watches over your life. The Lord keeps watch over you as you come and go, both now and forever.”Psalm 121:5-8 -NLT
