Under the shadow

A favorite Psalm in the Bible is Psalm 91. It begins with, “He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.” This verse is very comforting to us when we are going through situations beyond our control and there is no one to turn to but God. It is in situations like these that we realize we are nothing and God is everything. It is up to us to dwell in the secret place so when trouble comes we will not run scared, but know that we are under the shadow of the Almighty God and that God is in control. God is our refuge and fortress and our trust should be in Him completely. Full Story »
