But thanks be to God who gives us the victory through our LORD Jesus Christ. 1 Cor. 15:57
Now that I’ve got a shorter haircut, my head is exposed to the sun in new ways. As I’m walking around in the heat of Hong Kong summer, I’m constantly looking for shade. I’ll gladly walk further if that means I can stay out of the merciless sun! Just this morning I read Ps. 91:1 - "Those who live in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty." It’s not clear which human author wrote those words, but the leading theory is that Moses penned them. Think about it: forty years in the wilderness as a shepherd, followed by forty years in the wilderness as the leader of the wandering Hebrew people. The man knew about the importance of shade!
And sometimes there’s no natural shade, so you have to build one - a shelter - and crawl under it, because you MUST escape the sun! Here we read about the shelter and shade provided by the Almighty, the Most High God. What’s your shelter these days? How are you escaping from the “heat” of crisis, change and concern that seems endless? Have you built some kind of lean-to and crawled underneath, or are you resting in the cool, broad, immovable shelter of a loving, faithful, present God? We can rest in His shadow and escape the heat. I love 1 Peter 5:7 - "Cast all your anxieties on Him, because He cares for you."
