Prayer: YOUR BEST PROTECTION There are times in life when you need protection. It may be the difficult circumstances, it may be dangerous people, it may be the enemy who would desire to defeat you. In those tough times it is good to know that God has made provision for the help that you need. He is your shield! He does not just provide a shield, but He IS your shield. God has promised to bless the righteous by surrounding him as with a shield. (Psalm 5:12) What better protection could you have than God Himself to be your defense. A shield can deflect the attack of the enemy. A shield is strong, impenetrable. It can save you from injury and even fatal blows. The LORD is my rock and my fortress, and my deliverer, my God, my strength in whom I will trust, my shield and the horn of my salvation, my strong- hold. Psalm 18:2, 3 You can be sure that God knows when attacks will come. God is aware of your deepest need. He has a better view of danger than you have. You can put your trust in God to protect you from the enemy. Do not let fear overcome you. God spoke to Abram and gave him assurance. Do not be afraid, Abram. I am your shield, your exceeding great reward. Genesis 15:1 The Bible speaks of the shield of salvation (Psalm 18:35); the shield of faith that will quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one (Ephesians 6:16.) Also, Godís truth is your shield and buckler (Psalm 91:4.) When you are faced with overwhelming situations, call on God to be your shield. You can trust that He will defend you. For the LORD God is a sun and shield. The LORD will Give grace and glory; no good thing will He withhold From those who walk uprightly. Psalm 84:11 Joyfully, Joyce
