Isai 25:4 For thou hast been a strength to the poor, a strength to the needy in his distress, a refuge from the storm, a shadow from the heat, when the blast of the terrible ones [is] as a storm [against] the wall.
What Divine compassion is suggested here! The burning heat that pierces to our very heart as Satan uses all of his powers to overcome us, --- and then, suddenly, the "Shadow" that seperates us from the burning blast and our heart is cooled and restful! What has occured? Our Lord has revealed Himself and in the shadow of His wings we rejoice and are comforted. We hear His voice speaking to us, and, lo, it is the cool of the evening!
Blessed Lord, overshadow us with Thy presence today, and let the cool breezes from the secret place of the Most High refresh our souls. Amen.
