In the Shadow of His Hand
Oswald Chambers: "Whenever God gives a vision to a saint, He puts him in the shadow of His hand and the saint's duty is to be still and listen. There is a darkness which comes from excess of light and that is the time to LISTEN. Never try and help God fulfill His word."
Wow. That timely word deeply spoke to me; perhaps it speaks also to you. I feel that I cannot see and I cannot hear right now in the spirit realm. I feel blind and deaf like a person groping in the dark. Yet I had not considered that it is dark in a shadow!
Psalm 91: "He who dwells in the shelter of El Elyon (the Most High) will rest in the shadow of El Shaddai.
What if I set aside all thought of this future vision and decided to be content and joyful in the present? What if I learned to accept the silence of this darkness as the shadow, the shelter of El Shaddai - the dark, quiet place of the womb where I wait for Him to bring birth?
You have me in the shadow of Your hand, Father and it is my duty to be still - and listen - and know that You are God.
