"Strength and a Shield"

“Strength and a Shield”

The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in Him, and He helps me. My heart leaps for joy, and with my song I praise Him. The Lord is the strength of His people, a fortress of salvation for His anointed one. Psalm 28:7&8

God can and will be your STRENGTH and your SHIELD, in ANY situation. However, you must belong to Him in order for Him to be your STRENGTH and SHIELD. Then after you belong to Him, you MUST TRUST in Him for the results of your situation. He wants to HELP His children when they are distraught about anything that has become a burden to them. He is waiting for you to come to Him and implore His HELP, because when we do it exemplifies our TRUST in Him.

If you already have a healthy relationship with Him, and He has been your STRENGTH and SHIELD, does your HEART leap for JOY and do you spontaneously break out with song as a way of expressing the JOY and THANKSGIVING in your HEART for ALL that He is and does for YOU? If not, you should, because He inhabits our PRAISE.

King David says that the Lord God is the STRENGTH of His people. Those who are God’s TRUE CHILDREN should be MUCH in PRAYER for their NATION. We are facing PERILOUS TIMES, and EVERY nation NEEDS to turn to God to be their STRENGTH and SHIELD.

There is definitely POWER in the PRAYERS of God’s children. When we pray with FAITH, God moves mountains of DESPAIR and HOPELESSNESS. So why don’t we PRAY EARNESTLY for our beloved nations, all around this SIN-SICK world? David, when he was King of the nation of Israel, claimed that God was a FORTRESS of SALVATION for him. A place of STRENGTH and SAFETY, a place David could run to and be saved from his enemies. God can be your FORTRESS or REFUGE in PERILOUS times. He can and will be your STRENGTH and SHIELD when you come to Him with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART, CONFESSING your sins to Him and asking Him for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING that Jesus died for YOU, and is in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God, then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and with a TRUSTING HEART, let Him be your STRENGTH and SHIELD and a STRONG and MIGHTY FORTRESS of SALVATION for you. Do it NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!

Mood: hopeful
