23 Nov He is our Shield – 11/23/20
Proverbs 30:5 – “Every word of God is flawless; he is a shield to those who take refuge in him.”
Do you need a shield, a protector? Do you long for safety and stability amidst the chaos and confusion? Do you crave peace? A hiding place? A place that won’t feel like trying to cross quicksand. Then rehearse God’s promises. Search through His word. Learn more about His character. Ask the Spirit for insight. See that God is who He says He is. God does what He says He will do. And long for Him above all else.
David says, “How sweet are your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth!” (Psalm 119:103). God’s word IS flawless and learning it leads you to intimacy with, and confidence in, Him. He truly is the only shield that will never fail you. Keep your eyes on Him and not this world. He is your only safe refuge.
Father I am grateful that you know the beginning from the end. You never make mistakes, and You are always on your throne. I praise Your name and thank You that, even in hardship, You offer me a place of safety under the shadow of Your wing. You know me and love me and use literally everything—even pain and hardship—for my good and Your glory; if I will only turn it over to You. You alone are worthy of my trust. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
