Whose Shadow?

I’m Dr. Bob, and for just a Mentoring Minute, I would like to share with you one thing that amazes me. It is the choices people make. Many choose to walk in dark shadows, trying to conceal their sins, compromise and deliberate foolishness. To do so may seem attractive at the moment. It may bring feelings that temporarily mask the true nature of the coming consequences. However, the day inevitably arrives when poor choices cast their shadows, bringing darkness and perhaps even the shadow of death. Luke 1:79 records Zacharias, the father of John the Baptist, prophesying of his over his newborn son’s purpose, which would be to announce the Savior’s mission, to bring light to a darkened world. He said, “To give light to those who sit in darkness and the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace.” My advice is to get out from under, and stay out of those carnal and even demonic shadows that abound throughout our fallen world. Refuse to allow them to hover over you. Then, run under the shadow of the Almighty. It is a secret place reserved just for you. It is place of refuge and safety. There, God will be with you and cover you with an awesome display of His saving grace, protection and power. If you want to understand this better, read Psalm 91. It’s my favorite! Here is a final thought. A dark, shadowy path is dangerous, even when it seems right. Proverbs 14:12 and 16:25 say, “There is a way that seems right to a man, But its end is the way of death. Head for the light. Amazingly, you will find it under “the shadow of the Almighty” (Psalm 91:1). I do not know how to explain this. I simply know it’s true. What shadows might shadows1).ht. Amazingly, you will find it under the shadow of the Amighty. I do not know how to explain this. I simply kno be hovering over you?
