Would you like to have a protect close to you each day? Would you like that type of security, not only in the substance globe, but in your spiritual existence as effectively? I have very good news for you. You can have that defend. Your God guarantees to be that almighty protect to all who will have confidence in in Him.
Just like hand shields who utilized their earthly shields to deflect the blows of the enemy, so you can deflect the attacks of your spiritual enemies.
Psalm 5:eleven-12 points out this:
“But permit all people rejoice who set their have confidence in in You allow them at any time shout for joy, because You protect them allow those also who really like Your title be joyful in You. For You, O Lord, will bless the righteous with favor You will surround him as with a shield (NKJV).”
There is your guarantee. God will be your defend. He will safeguard the righteous.
Does that imply that God only protects individuals who are ideal-people who obey Him without having fail? No. The “righteous” in this passage are those who have trusted in Jesus Christ by yourself for salvation. The righteous are people who are declared “not responsible” by God since they have acknowledged Christ’s atonement for sin on the cross. The righteous are those who trust in Christ’s ideal righteousness, put to their account.
If you are in that group, then you have a protect-a divine shield that in no way fails. Of course, you may have troubles. You might have issues. You will have temptations and you will sin. Nevertheless, you will be secured by God. He will only permit occur to you what is in His excellent program and purpose for you. You is not going to always comprehend what is likely on in your lifestyle. That is why He asks you to stroll by faith and not by sight. Just preserve trusting Him.
What a glorious real truth to ponder. The hand of the residing God upholds you, Christian. You can walk in religion and have confidence in in Him. You can obey Him since He has your greatest pursuits in brain.
Observe how many times this passage tells you to “rejoice” and to be “joyful.” People are peculiar terms in our working day and age. But for the believer, these are quite genuine things. Even in the midst of trials and tribulations, you can rejoice in the Lord and thank Him for getting your protect.
Join me in a prayer of thanksgiving and praise to God the Father, God the Son (Jesus Christ), and God the Holy Spirit. Even when you can not see His hand functioning in your daily life, make sure you preserve on believing that it is there. God is the shield that protects you these days and permanently. Amen!
