I was wishing family a happy Mothers day today and my Grandma recommended psalms 91 of the Bible and Tanakh.
So I would enjoy the time to look at it with you and consider it.
He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
This makes me think of a family tree.
Who is at the top of our family tree? (highest)
God (Yodh He Waw He) (יהוה)
A secret is unknown to someone or someones.
I am not sure what my exact birth number is in our family.
It is a secret to me.
Abiding to the shadow of the Almighty seems to be to follow the protection of the almighty one, our Heavenly Father.
Our Heavenly Father in the 10 commandments protects all life.
Abiding by that is to honor it and it is good.
With all good religions considered.
One thing they have greatly in common.
Do no harm.
These thinkings are possibly distant connections, but still love flows from the scriptures and that is profitable.
Another consideration is abiding by the creators shadow possibly equals to have the creator as a role model as a shadow is the image of the origins of it.
We are made from the image and design of our creator so it is possible it is like saying “Try to be like him” or “Try to please him”.
My last consideration is that it could be a reference to obeying the 10 commandments. (some sources claim there are 11 I think)
The word abide stands apart in my view of the comprehension of this verse and it means to obey (in benefit).
The result of my studying of this verse simply refreshes my passion to have our creator as a friend, role model, and leader.
My goal is to be a good descendant that pleases him in having a hopeful future.
Of our family we deserve a pleasant quality of life, and for our creator, it has had a lot of effort put into it.
❤ Happy Mothers Day, Much Love ❤
