Isaiah 32:2 -- On Shadows and Service

"And a man shall be as an hiding place from the wind, and a covert from the tempest; as rivers of water in a dry place, as the shadow of a great rock in a weary land."
Isaiah 32:2

The man in this verse is a symbol of Christ, and I really love the imagery here of Christ being our relief... a place out of the wind, a shelter in the storm, a river in the desert, or a shadow to rest in when we are tired. :)  He is all of that for us when we reach out to him for help.

I think that these are also things that we can aspire to be for others.  We won't do as well as Christ does, of course, but part of walking with him and following his path is helping him in serving and helping others.

Today, let's turn to Jesus Christ in our need, and let us also reach out to others in need and provide what assistance we can.
