rest… in His shadow…

How precious is your steadfast love, O God!
The children of mankind take refuge in the shadow of your wings.
They feast on the abundance of your house,
and you give them drink from the river of your delights.
For with you is the fountain of life;
in your light do we see light.
Psalm 36:7 ESV
generally has a negative connotation… meaning…
receiving little attention… because someone else is better known…
more skillful…
Only in His shadow…
we find rest…
Rest from trying to gain attention for ourselves…
rest from striving in our own strength…
rest from criticism… critique…
The shadow of His wings falls over those who know His precious love…
there they find abundance… delights… life… and light…
His shadow is not overpowering…
it is empowering…
His shadow covers…
with grace…
strength…
mercy…
love…
When all we do…
is pursue His call…
stay in His shadow…
there is rest to be had…
knowing all belongs to Him…
whether praise…
or complaint…
Only in the shadow of His wings… His borders…
is there rest…
Rest… in His shadow…
