A shadow enters your path. What do you do?
Does the Adrenalin start pumping? Flee or Fight?
Shadows can't hurt us, but they can represent scary things. What if the person making the shadow held a knife or gun? That's a game changer.
The Psalmist, David, wrote these words:
Yay, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil.
David trained his mind and body not to fear. As a shepherd boy, he protected his sheep. He'd learned this valuable lesson. God would do for him what he did for his sheep.
With God's shadow following David, the shepherd understood the power behind the shadow.
Only God's shadow has power. All other dark images are mere dark silhouettes.
