Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; Psalm 23:4.  I used to think this verse referred to the time when we would be led into eternity.  Then I realized the Hebrew meaning says a death-like shadow or deep shadow.  Other biblical translations refer to it as a time when we go through a trial of deep darkness, like the darkest valley.   Notice, it says shadow.  A shadow can’t harm you.  Yet, it can make things look so big and scary… until light shines on it.  Remember, when you were a little child walking along and your shadow looked so big?  But, in reality, you were very small.  Our problems can seem so dark and monumentous, until we remember God is in charge.  He’s sovereign, above all and in complete control.  Everything is a simple fix to Him.  He can make a way where there seems to be no way.  I John 1:7 tells us to walk in the light, as God is in the light.  Meaning, looking steadfastly to Him in faith, bringing Him all our dark valleys and fears, while His light exposes and dispels them.   This allows our faith to be bigger than our fears.  Then, we can rest under His magnificent shadow… which truly reveals Him.  Psalm 91:1&2 says…”He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow (protective shelter) of the Almighty.  I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress;  My God in Him I will trust.”  ebHeb
