"Expect to encounter adversity...you live in a deeply fallen world... (I empower) you to live on a supernatural plane by depending on Me...(when)coming face-to-face with impossibilities...cry out to Me...Watch Me work on your behalf...under the shadow of My Almighty Power." Psalm 91:1 (241)
Living in this "deeply fallen world" can be deeply disturbing. I much prefer God's original, supernatural 'Plan A' where we were created to be living in Eden, before the fall of man, feasting on fruit trees, enjoying exotic animals, a perfect life partner and having fellowship with our Creator in the cool of the day.
But sin has so tainted our world that living supernaturally, in this world, is impossible...unless we learn how to live empowered! I found that the empowering place is "under the shadow of the Almighty" not under my own abilities! So when faced with adversities, difficulties and impossibilities, I must realize all the more my inability and His great Ability! So the very things I dread (adversity, difficulty and impossible situations) help remind me to stay exactly where I am suppose to be...
Under the Shadow of the Almighty...dmc
