#117 - A Conversation w/ Rep. Julie Emerson on Closed Primaries

“When you abide under the shadow of Shaddai -- the Hebrew word that means God of the Mountain, God the Destroyer of Enemies, God the Self-Sufficient One, God the Nurturer of Babies and God the Almighty -- you are hidden in the strength of God Most High. He’s the hope that holds me and the stronghold to shelter me, the only God for me, and my great confidence. He will rescue you from every hidden trap of the enemy, and he will protect you from false accusation and any deadly curse. His massive arms are wrapped around you, protecting you. You can run under his covering of majesty and hide. His arms of faithfulness are a shield keeping you from harm.”

This passage is a reminder that we are safe when we hide ourselves in the Lord. He’s the Self- Sufficient one who protects us, cares for us and destroys those who try to harm us. Hiding ourselves in the Lord doesn’t mean hiding from our responsibilities or duties to act. It means that we clothe ourselves in the Lord. The picture is that we are so wrapped in communion with Him, in prayer, in worship, in reading and consuming the scriptures that because of our closeness with the Lord, He becomes our protection and armor as we go out to the work He’s called us to do - and as we go out to take ground in this spiritual war.
