We all have times in our lives when we need a shield put in front of us.
God is our help and our shield.
I have a secure feeling knowing that my God is my refuge and he also is my shield. He shields me from things to protect me when I need protection. It gives me a peace knowing this.
In Psalm 18:30 it says, " As for God his way is perfect; the word of the Lord is flawless. He is a shield for all who take refuge in him."
I don't doubt that God's word is flawless. His words are true. Yet there are times I have to remind myself that my trust should be put in Him and that I should walk by His words.
In our world today, with all the violence we would do well to remember that He is our refuge. He shield is in front of us, His children.
Perhaps in the morning we could pray this prayer.
Oh Lord my God, I know your way is perfect, that you are leading me today and that your words you say are flawless. You are my shield today and I will take refuge in you. Amen
