Two Kinds of Shadows

Worry often gives a small thing a big shadow. ~Swedish Proverb

Psalm 23:4 NKJV … Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; For You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.

Psalm 36:7-9 NIV … How priceless is your unfailing love! Both high and low among men find refuge in the shadow of your wings. They feast in the abundance of your house; you give them drink from your river of delights. For with you is the fountain of life; in your light we see light.

Psalm 91:1,4 AMP … He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall remain stable and fixed under the shadow of the Almighty [Whose power no foe can withstand]. … He will cover you with His pinions, and under His wings shall you trust and find refuge; His truth and His faithfulness are a shield and a buckler.

“Two kinds of shadows. When we are in the shadow worry (Ps 23:4), we need the shadow of wings (Ps 36.7)” – John Piper

Psalm 17:8 NIV … Keep me as the apple of your eye; hide me in the shadow of your wings.
