Hide In God

As the people of God assemble in their homes and around their computer screens to Under Wing.jpgjoin in worship and the Word may they be strengthened, encouraged and comforted by the life of the risen Christ Who has already risen victorious over the grave, let alone any other life-defying thing. May they hide in Yahweh Who is the God of heaven and earth and the One Who protects and sustains His children. “Please, God, show me mercy!Open your grace-fountain for me, for you are my soul’s true shelter. I WILL HIDE beneath the shadow of your embrace, under the wings of your cherubim, until this terrible trouble is past.” (Ps.57:1, TPT)


Under My Father’s Shadow

When I was a small boy, there was a huge German Shepherd that would come trotting down our street every day. To my young eyes, looking through our backyard fence, he looked as big as a horse. I would tremble trying to hide behind the gatepost and hoped he did not look my way or come up our driveway. One day my father was standing outside the fence, in the driveway, talking to our neighbor. I was standing next to him. That dreaded wolf-like creature came trotting down the street and looked right at me as he passed. I simply put my arm around my father’s powerful leg, looked right at that hell-hound and stuck my tongue out as far as I could! I had no fear and wasn’t in the least concerned because I was convinced my father could handle anything that slobbering, long-toothed denizen-of-the-hood might attempt. If I am overshadowed, I don’t have a shadow. If I am hidden in the shadow of my Father, I am so close that HE is the one who is seen and I am afforded His protective covering.  ”He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall remain stable and fixed under the shadow of the Almighty [Whose power no foe can withstand].” (Ps.91:1, AMPC)
