In His Shadow


I will overshadow you with My shoulders—
having you covered there with a mantle—
and in My arms you will trust.
Psalm 91:4
After reading many translations of this psalm, 
the Lord gave me these words of promise.
It is the picture of a loving Father
carrying His child close to His chest,
protection not only from external danger
but from anything that could touch
the one He so loves.
This morning, I sit in His shadow.
His shoulders completely envelop me,
and His mantle covers my mind and my heart.
In His powerful and gracious presence,
I find rest for my soul.
He is my security and defense
in the midst of danger, snare and temptation.
How precious, O God, is your unfailing love!
    We find protection under the shadow of your wings.
Psalm 36:7
Lord, help me to remain in Your shadow,
protected by Your mantle,
in the center of Your presence.
I don't want to be anywhere else.
