In this second form of the sacred shadow, the sense of awe gives place to that of restful delight in Christ. Have you ever figured in such a sense as the sitter beneath the graceful shade of the fruitful tree? Have you not only possessed security , but experienced delight in Christ? Have you sung, "I sat down under his shadow, sat down with great delight; His fruit was sweet unto my taste, And pleasant to my sight"? This is as necessary an experience as it is joyful ; necessary for many uses. The joy of the Lord is our strength, and it is when we delight ourselves in the Lord that we have assurance of power in prayer.

Here faith develops , and hope grows bright , while love shines abroad all the fragrance of her sweet spices. I think the best specimen of it, for it occurs several times, is in that blessed psalm, the sixty-third, and the seventh verse: "Because you have been my help, therefore in the shadow of your wings will I rejoice. Does not this set forth our Lord as our trust in hours of depression?

In the psalm now open before us, David was banished from the means of grace to a dry and thirsty land, where no water was. What is much worse, he was in a measure away from all conscious enjoyment of God. He says, "Early will I seek you. My soul thists for you. We also have come into this condition, and have been unable "to find any present comfort. Light, there was none; we were altogether in the shade, but it was a warm shade. We felt that God who had been near must be near us still, and therefore we were quieted. Our God cannot change, and therefore as he was our help he must still be, our help, our help even when he cast a shadow over us, for it must be the shadow of his own, eternal wings.

The little bird is not yet able to take care of itself, so it cowers down under the mother, and is there happy and safe.

The Right Hand of God

Disturb a hen for a moment and you will see all the little creatures huddling together, and by their chirps making a kind of song. Then they push their heads into her feathers, and seem happy beyond measure in their warm abode. When we are very sick and sore depressed, when we are worried with the care of pining children, and the troubles of a needy household, and the temptations of Satan, how comforting it is to run to our God- like the little chicks to the hen- and hide away near his heart, beneath his wings.

Oh, tried ones, press closely to the loving heart of your Lord, hide yourselves entirely beneath his wings. Here awe has disappeared, and rest itself is enhanced by the idea of loving trust. Turn to Isaiah , " And he made my mouth like a sharp sword; in the shadow of his hand he hid me; he made me into a polished arrow; it his quiver has he hid me. This undoubtedly refers to the Savior, for the passage proceeds: "And said unto me, you are my servant, O Israel, in whom I will be glorified.

Then I said, I have labored in vain, I have spent my strength for nothing, and in vain: yet surely my judgment is with the Lord, and my work with my God.

And now, says the Lord that formed me from the womb to be his servant, to bring Jacob again to him, Though Israel be not gathered, yet shall I be glorious in the eyes of the Lord, and my God shall be my strength. And he said, It is a light thing that you should be my servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob, and to restore the preserved of Israel: I will also give you for a light to the Gentiles, that you may be my salvation unto the end of the earth. Our Lord Jesus Christ was hidden away in the hand of Jehovah, to be used by him also, a polished arrow for the overthrow of his enemies, and the victory of his people.

Every one of you who will speak a word for Jesus shall have a share in it. This is where those who are workers for Christ should long to be- in the shadow of his hand, to achieve his eternal purpose.

We ought to be as arrows of the Lord which he shoots at his enemies, and so great is his hand of power, and so little are we as his instruments, that he hides us away in the hollow of his hand, unseen until he shoots us forth. As workers, we are to be hidden away in the hand of God, or to quote the other figure, "in his quiver has he hid me": we are to be unseen until he uses us.

Then a cloud formed, overshadowing them, and a voice came out of the cloud, "This is My beloved Son, listen to Him! While he was saying this, a cloud formed and began to overshadow them; and they were afraid as they entered the cloud. While he was still speaking, a bright cloud overshadowed them, and behold, a voice out of the cloud said, "This is My beloved Son, with whom I am well-pleased; listen to Him!

The angel answered and said to her, "The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you; and for that reason the holy Child shall be called the Son of God. Over all, not a bad ending to a decent series. The characters are still interesting despite not developing much, and the war takes a few unexpected turns.

The one thing that really bothers me is that I had a clear "aha! It felt like a missed opportunity to tie the Over all, not a bad ending to a decent series. It felt like a missed opportunity to tie the series together. I kind of lost heart in this series of book after the 2nd which seemed way more christian fundamentalist than the first book. However, the story piqued my interest enough to get the 3rd book to find out what was really going on. I think that I feel rather disappointed witht they way that some of the "mysteries" were resolved and were not thrashed out enough to give a credible wind up to the trilogy.

That said, some parts of the story were excellent but weighted down in the main by some ve c That said, some parts of the story were excellent but weighted down in the main by some very stilted passages.

Nov 26, Mick rated it really liked it Shelves: fantasy. This is the conclusion of the Fire of Heaven Series. While I still recommend it, especially if you read the first two, I have to say it is the least enjoyable of the three. I'd like to explain why this is but I can't do it in any detail without giving away plot points. Lets just say it wasn't as rewarding as I would have hoped.


It is still a great read full of intrigue and fast pacing with perhaps the most action of the three novels. May 11, Felicity rated it it was ok. My mother gave me this series of books to read. There are a lot of descriptive battle scenes and an underlying religious message. Most books take me about a 3 days if not busy to a week to read. Each one of these took me a month. It was good enough to keep reading but it didn't hold my attention for long periods of time.

I like to be swept away by fiction. Unfortunately that did not happen with these books. Dec 07, Connor Ferguson rated it really liked it Shelves: strong-protagonist , awesome-villain , good-support-characters.

In this, we finally understand all of the characters fully, hero and villain alike. The protagonist has been struggling with very real internal problems for a while the exact same problems I have with religion, in fact , and finally finds a good solution. There is a lot of loss here at the end, but the end is perfect for the villain and his henchmen, and has good triumph over evil in a way that mostly avoids cliches. May 09, Aisha Mahmoud rated it really liked it Shelves: fantasy. Really good. Not as good as the first two but still I could not put it down. Loved it. Some Christianity in it but not extremely so.

Very exciting and interesting with many surprises. My only frustration is my library does not have his second series.

Eventually I will have to buy it. I am loving his writing. Characters that had been signposted as having a bigger role got sidelined. Shame, because the first book, scene-by-scene was perfect. The publishers forced him to produce books 2 and 3 a year apart; the first took 13 years to write.

You have to hate publishers who kill the goose thinking they'll get the golden eggs. Sep 01, Brennetta rated it it was ok. I didn't think this was a terrific series but I enjoyed it. This third and last one was definitely the hardest to get through and at times I almost put down to never pick up again.

That was how each book was.

Jun 15, Sue Robbins rated it liked it. Really well done epic fantasy trilogy. The world-building excellent and believable, and the character development is solid. The story is mostly interesting, although slows a bit in book 2 and the latter part of book 3. Still, one of the better representations for this genre. Sep 27, Aeklipse rated it it was ok. It was interesting at first but alot of questions were left unanswered it seemed. It was a little of a struggle to finish.

The story was ok but some characters were not fully developed. More or less it wad an OK read. Aug 02, Fred rated it it was amazing Shelves: fantasy.
