God is a Shield
LISTEN NOW! John and Pat discuss how God Himself is our shield and how there is safety in Jesus. The Bible tells us in Proverbs 30:5 that “Every word of God is flawless; he is a shield to those who take refuge in him.” They continue to discuss how many people today have become more and more fretful over so many things ranging from terrorist attacks, sickness, stress and everything in between. They further discuss that God himself is our shield and continue to discuss the imagery of a shield and how God would describe Himself in such a way. When thinking about a shield they discuss how a shield is primarily a defensive weapon and it is designed to block and receive the swords and knives that would normally strike the person. They further discuss how God is so willing to get between us and the very thing that is heading directly to us aiming to do us harm. It is said that a boxer has a good chance of winning a match if he can avoid getting hit. Today many people and believers alike are getting bombarded on a daily basis and one of the main reasons is because they have stepped outside and away from God’s protection all the while they are quick to claim scriptures they don’t apply to their lives. They continue to discuss that just because a scripture is true doesn’t mean that it applies to everyone. Yes it’s true that an umbrella will keep you from getting wet but of course this applies to the one who actually opens up the umbrella. Yes it’s true that a coat will keep you warm but it keeps the person who puts on the coat warm. God’s word becomes true in your life when you have done two things; one accepting the God of the Bible and applying the truth in God’s word to your life. Put on Christ and make Him the Lord of your life. He desires to be your protector. Make Him the Lord of your life today.
