It’s Just A Shadow…

“Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for Thou art with me; Thy rod and Thy staff they comfort me…”(Ps. 23:4).

Do not allow ‘the shadow of doubt’ to prevent you from reaching the place God has prepared for you. Do not allow ‘the valley of the shadow of death’ to prevent you from moving forward into your destiny. A shadow represents the appearance of something, but we must remember that it does not contain the actual physical properties or characteristics of the object. Its presence often deters us because we know that it means that its owner is somewhere near…even if we cannot see it. However, there remains hope because we know that a shadow is completely harmless and once we return our focus to the mission before us, the power of the shadow is rendered ineffective. It derives its power from our fear of it. Remember…it’s just a shadow…

  1. Sean, it is so good to see you posting! I have missed you and your reminders of where our focus should be. And this post is such a great example. Another great verse is James 1:17 “Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows”. I have always tried to remember this one when I have had to face yet another challenge because I know that the challenge is a shadow and God has something wonderful for me when I just focus on Him.

  2. Excellent post! I like your short, personal pieces about whatever is going on in your life. They’re very encouraging. With others, I’m glad to see you’re back. 🙂
