Typically one may shadow another to learn a new trade, duty, or responsibility. This consists of following, observing, and asking questions to assure understanding and attain assurance. When you abide in and stay connected to God, you cease to labor and relax in His arms. In this secret place is peace and protection from all opposing forces. The shadow of Almighty God is your rear and front guard. He does what you cannot do and is with you always.
