Up from the Death Shade!

[Saturday, January 21]

“Even in times when it would seem that certain destruction is near, I will bring you up from the shadow of death. For light is being cast upon the shadows of evil and you will come to a place of sure deliverance.”

Prophetic Scripture:

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me (Psalms 23:4).

The phrase shadow of death literally means “death shade.” The best way I can describe it is like a Pink Panther cartoon I once saw. Pink was going about his business when a little rain cloud appeared above him. Everywhere he went it kept raining, but only on him. He tried to escape, but it just followed him everywhere, keeping him under a dark cloud.

That is what the shadow of death is like. It is as if you are under the cloud of impending disaster. However, Psalms 23:4 says that we don’t have to fear a death shade because of God’s presence. Remember two things: First, it’s only a shadow. Shadows can’t hurt you, they just indicate that something is there. Know that if the devil has been limited to mere shadow-casting then something is preventing him from actually touching you! Second, remember that shade always disappears when light is cast upon it and the Lord is casting light on those shadows today. Stand with confidence in the light of God’s presence and watch those shadows of death disappear!


Dear Lord, I thank You that I am free from the shadow of death. I know that Your presence is with me, casting a light on every situation, and nothing is able to harm me. I come out from the death shade in the Name of Jesus and I refuse to be fearful any longer! Amen!
