The Lord is My Strength and Shield
November 25, 2020
Psalm 28:7 (NLT)
7 "The Lord is my strength and shield. I trust him with all my heart. He helps me, and my heart is filled with joy. I burst out in songs of thanksgiving."
God has given us weapons that are ready and available to us. These weapons will give us strength on the battle field. Right before Psalm 28:7 was penned, David was going through some desperate times and he reminds us that God is our strength. He is our shield, and He will supply us with protection keeping us out of the grip of our enemies.
David cried out to the Lord, and God heard him, and God answered him. Do you trust God like David did? Do you believe that God will hear you when you call out on His name? David said, “I trust him with all my heart."
Today, we say that the world is going crazy, but this is not the first time they have shouted out insults toward God; telling Him that they don’t want him in their lives anymore. They are trying to kick Him out of our schools, governments, business, even our homes. Still, like David, we can rejoice as we burst out with songs of thanksgiving! Can I get a witness from somebody today? Be encouraged knowing you have the best Helper in the world waiting to help you.
Father, I will praise You for You are the one who hears me when I cry for help. You supply me with strength and protect me, keeping me from harm's way. My heart is filled with joy as I stand in Your presence with a grateful heart. Thank You, Father, for helping me with all of my bills, and continually bringing health to my family, my friends, and all those that I love. Thank You for Your word that encourages me and gives me hope with great expectations because You are faithful to us. In Jesus' name, Amen.
Blessings on the journey, and remember that the best is yet to come.
