Right now, in the shade of God's holiness, is there something that could be better? My friend, if you want things to be different, to be better, then you will have to change what you think, feel, and do. It's simple, but not necessarily easy. It is also daring. And since you are shaded by God's holiness your prayerful choice is blessed and guided. So, what is the one thing right now that you'd really like to be better in your life? Write this on a piece of paper and write under it these three -- think, feel, do. Now stick it someplace where you'll see it each day.
Each time you look at the item on your paper, think to yourself, "Lord, this is shaded by Your Holiness." In this way you move your goal for betterment into the shade. Emerson, a great word sleuth, said, "Great people are they who see that the spiritual is stronger than any material force, that thoughts rule the world." Changing our thoughts changes the way we feel and what we do. God's holiness helps to cast out negativity, doubts and fears. In the shade of God's holiness we are spiritually refreshed. Shaded in Christ Jesus.
The Lord is your Keeper; the Lord is your shade at your right hand. Psalm 121:5
To God be the Glory!
