The Overshadower

The Overshadower…

The Hebrew scriptures speak of Jesus coming at the sunrise. Isaiah 60:1 says, “Arise, shine; for your light has come.” In Malachi, “The Son of righteousness will rise with healing in his wings.”

What happens when the sun rises? When the sun rises, everything else, every other light fades away. The moon becomes like a faded ghost. The stars disappear. That’s who Jesus is – He’s the One who overshadows everything else.

If we turn to Jesus and see Him in His glory, if you see God face to face, everything else fades away because it’s so brilliant. That means your problems will fade away. Your worries will fade away. Your sins will fade away.

Let Him overshadow everything else. Let His love overshadow your fears; His beauty overshadow the world around you; His joy oveshadow your temptations; His righteousness overshadow your sin, and His presence overshadow even your very life.

Get so caught up in seeing Him who is the sunrise that the rest fades away. And when the rest fades away, then you are really seeing Him.

But for you who revere my name, the sun of righteousness will rise with healing in its rays. And you will go out and frolic like well-fed calves. Malachi 4:2

Today turn your heart, mind and focus to the sunrise of the Lord and let His light and love overshadow every thing else.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always
