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.
When the shifting shadows of adversity come to hide our Father’s goodness and light, then it is time to get out of the shadows and into the Light. It is easy to feel overwhelmed by these shadows that come to convince us that our Father does not have good and perfect gifts for us. These shadows shift and shape into images of fear; causing us to cower as they try to overshadow truth.
If the shifting shadows of adversity are dictating your posture then it is time to stand up and move out of the shadow and back into the light. Jesus is light and no shadow is big enough to hide Him. Shadows always appears larger than the figure actually is. This is also true when the enemy comes to cast a shadow of doom. It looks larger and more hopeless than it actually is. Now is the time to get into the Light and let His shadow overshadow you from these shifting shadows.
The Father of Lights has every good and perfect gift that you need and desire. He loves to give good gifts to His children but sometimes we need to come to Him to receive them from His hand. Don’t cower under the adversity but boldly approach the One who has overcome all adversity.
Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
