"Refuge, Protection and Shield"

 

“Refuge, Protection and Shield”

 

But let all who take refuge in You be glad; let them ever sing for joy.  Spread Your protection over them, that those who love Your name may rejoice in You.       Psalm 5:11

 

This is part of a Psalm of David, and David KNEW about troubles, a lot of his life was consumed with TROUBLES, some of which he brought on himself, because of the sins that he allowed to affect the intentions of his heart.  Yet, he still WORSHIPED the LORD GOD, and was known as; a man after God’s own Heart.  He sought God’s FORGIVENESS, because he KNEW that his sins would alter his relationship with God, and they would keep God’s intervention away from David’s perils.

 

However, when David faced such perils, he KNEW where to find REFUGE and PROTECTION for his weary soul.  Singing was/is a big part of PRAISE, and David did his fair share of SINGING PRAISES to the ALMIGHTY GOD.  Here we see that he ENCOURAGES the TRUE BELIEVERS to SING for JOY, because they have REFUGE and PROTECTION through God.

 

Not only is God the REFUGE and PROTECTION, but He is their SHIELD.  The ONLY WAY for mankind to experience GOD as their REFUGE and PROTECTION and their SHIELD is through His Son, the LORD JESUS CHRIST, who provides a RIGHT RELATIONSHIP between mankind and God. 

 

So, in order for a person, who has NOT given their HEART and LIFE to God, to be able to experience GOD as their REFUGE, PROTECTION and SHIELD, and to have an ETERNAL HOME in Heaven, with ALL its BLESSINGS, instead of HELL, with ALL its HORRORS.  You MUST be WILLING TO TURN AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle, and TURN TO GOD, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART.  CONFESSING your sins to Him, and asking Him for His FORGIVENESS.  BELIEVEING, with ALL your HEART, that JESUS died for YOU, and that He is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God.  Then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and let Him be your REFUGE, PROTECTION, and SHIELD. Then SING for JOY, and be able to REJOICE, because His PROTECTION is over those who LOVE His Name.  Do this NOW, while you still can.  He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!

Mood: hopeful
