Calvary’s Shadow

When I was younger, I loved playing hide-n-seek. I don’t mean to brag but I was a great hider. Whenever me and my sister would travel to my grandmothers house for the weekend, my grandmother would always make sure to sneak in a game of hide-n-seek. I was the best at it because I had a sweet spot that no one could find me in.

Years later and I’m grown up and not much has changed. I’m still great at hiding. I’m just not as great as finding my sweet spot. There isn’t one human on this earth that doesn’t know how to hide. We just often fail to hide in the right place.

Where we choose to hide will either lead us to a place of Victory (Jesus) or a place of Defeat.


The Psalmist, David, made huge mistakes. More than once he failed God. He could have hidden behind all of his mess, but he knew where to refuge. He hid himself in the Lord, he hid himself in Calvary’s Shadow.

“He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say to the Lord, “My refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.”

  • Psalm 91:1,2
