Scared of Shadows
There are times when shadows have caused us to jump! It may have been when you were arriving home at night and your own shadow loomed large against the outside wall. Perhaps your initial fright turned into amusement when you realised, "There is nothing there!"
When next you are feeling hurt and let down, frustrated or fearful, check for shadows. It may be something, but it may look worse than what it really is.
And remember this:
Judges 9:36 - "When Gaal saw them, he said to Zebul, "Look, people are coming down from the tops of the mountains!" Zebul replied, "You mistake the shadows of the mountains for men."
Psalm 17:8 - "Keep me as the apple of your eye; hide me in the shadow of your wings."
