Dearly beloved in Christ, I greet and bless you in the Name of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. The auspicious life giving word of the Lord, for today is from the book of 2 Samuel 22:31, ‘He is a shield to all those who trust in Him. ”
The Lord is a shield to all who trust in Him. Many children have endured losses. You are thinking, ‘What is this life full of pain and agony? . You are weary and frustrated. The devil is shooting arrows in many children’s lives. That is harming your body, mind and life. The reason is because you don’t have a shield. There is no shield to shoot down the arrows of the devil. The witchcraft that some do, against us penetrates into us like an arrow and is shattering our lives. The reason is the absence of the shield. Many deadly diseases are coming towards us. It is penetrating into us and is bringing losses, struggles, sufferings and financial crisis. The reason is the absence of the shield. So, why is the shield necessary? Arrows will come towards us, but we need a shield to stop all those arrows aimed at us. If we have a worldly shield, we can stop it to a certain level, but if the Lord himself is a shield to us, He will stop everything and protect us from all harm and danger.
If you are given a shield, you will be able to stop only the arrows that are shot at you. However, we do not know how the devil will spread a trap for us. Only the Lord who can look over us in all directions can be our real shield. That is why the Lord is telling that He will be a shied to all who trust in Him. If the Lord is our shield, He will be the security around us. The Bible says, that the Lord will dwell in the midst, like the wall of fire. He will protect you from all harm. But the Lord is not a one-way shield; He is an all-rounded shield. So trust in Him. Don’t put your trust in worldly things like money or material or a person, but in the Lord. None other than the Lord can be our protection and shield. So, trust in the Lord and ask Him to be your shield. He will raise a wall of fire around you and will dwell in your midst and will perform miracles for you.
Prayer: Loving Lord, we thank you! From this day change all the situations that cause pain to some children and give them divine deliverance and peace. I pray that You alone will be the shield for your children. Let them trust in You rather than anything that is worldly. Let them say, ‘The Lord is a shield to me’ He is a shield to me and my family’. May You be their shield and protection. Save them from all disaster. May they be safe and secure as You are the shield to them.
