lean on Him… Psalm 91:1-6…

He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say to the Lord, “My refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.”
For he will deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the deadly pestilence.
He will cover you with his pinions, and under his wings you will find refuge;
his faithfulness is a shield and buckler.
You will not fear the terror of the night, nor the arrow that flies by day,
nor the pestilence that stalks in darkness, nor the destruction that wastes at noonday.
Psalm 91:1-6 ESV

I’ve got your back…
it’s a popular saying these days…
one that encourage trust… strength…
This psalmist tells us…
when we live God’s way…
He’s got our back…
The shadow of the Almighty…
looms large behind us… over us…
Do you see it…?
Us moving forward… trusting Him…
knowing He’s got our back…
His shadow falling over…
lengthening beyond us…
In this place of trust…
following His way…
there is no need to fear…
the snare of the enemy…
the terrors of the night…
the threats of the day…
But there is a place…
we can wander…
out from under His shadow…
away from His way…
living in the world…
instead of His Word…
this is a deadly place… 
a place we don’t want to be…
Stay near… under His shadow…
for whoever lives hidden in Him…
remains in the shadow of His strength…
If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above,
where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your mind
on things that are above, not on things that are on earth.
For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God.
Colossians 3:1-3 ESV
