Thou Oh Lord are a SHIELD about me. (Psalm 3: 3)
The Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower. (Psalm 18:2)
When the enemy comes in Like a flood, the battle belongs to the Lord… (1 Sam. 17:47)
When we are attacked by the enemy of our souls, the one who comes to rob, kill and destroy us, we are admonished, by Paul, to put on our armor. (Read Ephesians 6) This is something I do daily and sometimes throughout the day. When we put on our armor we are putting on Jesus. He is our salvation, our righteousness, our truth, our peace, the author and finisher of our faith, and He is The Word of God.
There something else that hit me when I was going through a very severe attack recently. These usually come as unwanted thoughts and can be very disconcerting as they come from nowhere. These are, in my opinion the fiery darts that Paul talks about.
These thoughts had come in like a flood and it was at this moment, The Spirit of the Living God impressed upon me this praise song: Thou oh Lord are a shield about me. Then, He gave me the other two scriptures.
What impressed me was this. The Lord Himself is our shield. He is the one who covers us as we are really no match for enemy on our own. It is His power, His might that we call upon. It is His battle not ours. Yes, we have authority in Jesus. I understand that, but in the end it is He who is our rock, our high tower, our fortress, who is a shield about us.
So with that in mind. Whatever it is that faces us we must understand that He is our shield. He will protect us and save us and He will present us before His presence with singing.
Are you being attacked? Pray out loud: Lord, be my shield today. Cover me. Set me apart and bring your peace to me so that I may serve you and the people you bring across my path.
Thou, Oh Lord are a shield about me!
