Under the shadow of Father God’s wing, the believer hides in total safety. If one hides in the shadow of personal secrecy, their safety is not secured.
“He that dwells in the secret place of the Most High, shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.” Psalm 91:1
As the contrast of the two shadows unfolded, I saw that those who hid in the shadowed place of secret sins were hidden in total darkness. Darkness begets more darkness.
I saw those hidden in the shadow of the Almighty were hidden in a place that was actually filled with light ~ a light midst this Divine Shadow. The light under this shadow was illumined by His anointing ~ a presence that emanates to us while being close to Father’s heart. This supernaturally powerful field dispelled all darkness while allowing light to beget more light.
“I will say of the Lord, ‘He is my refuge and my fortress: my God, in Him will I trust.'” The decision is ours ~ which shadow? ~ the sheltering haven, or that unsafe place of our own making? The next several verses promise the benefits of being fixed under the shadow of His wing, whose power no foe can withstand.
“Because He has set his love upon Me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he has known My name. He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honor him. With long life will I satisfy him, and show him My salvation.” [Psalm 91:14-16]
