shelter

I came across a passage this morning that kind of blew my mind.

You know when God illustrates things to you that are at the perfect timing and setting?

Here’s the passage…

Those who live in the shelter of the Most High will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I declare the Lord alone is my refuge, my place of safety. He is my God and I trust Him.” – Psalm 91:12

I took this image a few days back…  I was intrigued by the light in the image and the shelter the tree provided from the sun.

It’s so true. You sit out in that sun all day in the heat… you are going to get burned and exhausted. But, walk on over to the shade of a tree or a shelter, immediately relief floods in. The shadow gives you a break from the beating sun. It makes it easier for your eyes to see. It gives you a place to rest and relax.

Our lives are the same! We can seek shelter in HIM. Just as the Psalmist put it. He is our God and we trust Him.. so don’t try and fight the heat and bright sun. Run to the shade and the shelter to find relief and peace. Allow Him to protect you from getting burned and the pain that it causes later.

For me that means to stop trying to take control and worry over what may or may not happen. TRUST Him. Sit under His wing. Hold his hand. Rest in His shelter.
