God as our shield continued

Daily Thought

Your Word for 18 April 2024

Psalm 91:11
‘For He will command His angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways.’

the Lord is your shieldGOD NEVER FAILS
He is a shield to each one who will trust in Him.  This shield does not just cover one area of our lives.
The problems with shields are that they only protect you on one front. Our Heavenly Shield will never fail us no matter what side the problems may come from.
Psalm 3:3 ‘You, LORD, are a shield around me, my glory, the One who lifts my head high.’
HE is a shield that goes right around you – even on your blind side.

Psalm 5:12 ‘Surely, LORD, You bless the righteous; You surround them with Your favor as with a shield.’

Just like with the ozone shield around the earth where there is no alternative, so it is with God, He is our only shield our only alternative.  Every other thing that you think is a shield will fail you, but He will remain faithful.  Human wisdom and human power cannot compare.  He is the only sure, enduring and everlasting defense and shield to us His son and daughters.

Psalm 7:10 ‘My shield is God Most High, who saves the upright in heart.’
