Sun And Shield

TEXT: ‘for the lord is a sun and a shield: the lord will give grace and glory : no good thing will he withhold from those who walk uprightly’ Psalm 84:11

The lord is sun and shield to the believer. He shines forth his glory and favour upon us and surrounds us with that favour as a shield. Shield in this context serves two functions – firstly it preserves us from harm and secondly, it keeps us grounded in God’s favour.We are entitled to this because we are the righteousness of Christ Jesus (2 Cor 5:21) and so we can be sure that all things work together for our good.

God is constantly working to ensure that his plans for our lives come to reality, and so whether we understand what is happening or not, the bible said to trust in God and give thanks in all things (1 Thess. 5:18). Better days are ahead.

LEARN and APPLY: Blessed is the man who trusts in God, whose strength is in him.

Pray: Father we are so blessed to have You in our lives. We ask for the wisdom and strength to hold on to You always and we pray that you continue to favour us, in Jesus’ name Amen.
