Your Shield and Buckler
He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wing shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.
- Psalm 91: 4
When you are living your life on God's terms, God provides such protection that the devil won't even know your address! As long as you remain in God's kingdom. He is faithful to protect you. He is your sentry, watching over what He has entrusted to you.
"Verily, verily, I say unto you, If a man keep my saying, he shall never see death" (John 8:51). The word "keep" in the original Greek, means we are placed in a position of absolute protection.
Psalm 42:1 says, "As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God." animals seek the water for two reasons: to quench their thirst and to hide their scent when being hunted.
When we wade out into the deep waters of covenant living, we are surrounded by His presence, protection, and provision.
Abide in Him. He is faithfully watching over the health of your children, protecting your marriage, and guarding your property. No person or thing can protect you from the enemy's attack. Only Your loving Father can shelter you and give you refuge. Run to Him. Hide under His wing and find true security in His feathers.
Father, hide me under Your wing and protect me from all attacks and harm. Spread Your wing over my family, my church, my friends, and all my belongings. Amen.
