But thou, O LORD, art a shield for me; my glory, and the lifter up of mine head. Psalm 3:3
Let this be our confession in times that seek to challenge us…in times when it seems we are all alone; walking through the fires…defying the odds as we wade into the waters of adversity…let us keep our gaze always on the fourth man in the fires with us. Let us make this verse our confession always.
For the Lord is our shield and exceedingly great reward. He is our light and salvation…He is the reason we persevere and succeed…He is our motivation to rise up always no matter how many times we are put down…He is our strength and song.
The Lord is our shield of protection against all the advances of darkness in this fallen cosmos. He is our standard lifted to spoil the ranks of the enemy. He is our wisdom that defies the wiles of Lucifer…our chariot of flaming fire surrounding us with cherubim’s and swords unsheathed…He is our shield!
Nothing can get past Him. We have an impregnable defense in the Lord. No fire can harm us. No water can drown us. No device can touch us. Because our sure defense is the Lord…He is our shield!
Thank you Lord.
