A Powerful Shield

Life has a way at coming at us fast, and before we know it we are in the midst of something that we do not even remember how we got into it.  When we are bombarded with things it feels like we are being loaded with weight that is almost impossible to carry.  It is in these times of heaviness and despair that we must look to The Lord for our hope and our help.  There is no reason that we should be walking around with our heads hung low because we know that The Lord is with us even when it does not feel like it.  

The Scripture reminds us, The Lord is a shield about us, our glory, and the lifter of our heads.  I encourage you today to remember that when life is coming at you fast, The Lord is a shield around you.  When there is danger from every side pressing hard against you, The Lord is a shield around you.  When you seemingly have more enemies than friends, remember that The Lord is a shield around you and what is trying to come against you cannot get to you, because The Lord is protecting you.  

No matter what it is that you are going through you do not have to have your head hung down, because The Lord is the lifter of your head, and He is your glory.  When trouble comes your way, look up.  When problems come to weigh you down, look up.  When you do not know what else to do, look up and know that The Lord is always with you.  The Lord is my shield, my glory, and the lifter of my head, and no matter what is happening around me I will not fret or fear because I know that The Lord is with me.  

Since I know that The Lord is my everything I have no doubt, “It’s My Year To Get My Thing From My God!”

Prayer

Lord thank you for being my shield, my glory, and the lifter of my head.  I know that you are always with me and I will always give you praise in all that I face.  In Jesus Name Amen.
