God's Got Your Back!


Did you know that Scripture says God's "got your back"?

In Psalm 3:3, the psalmist writes:
"But you, LORD, are a shield around me, my glory, the One who lifts my head high."

The Treasury of David says, "The word in the original signifies more than a shield; it means a buckler round about, a protection which shall surround a man entirely, a shield above, beneath, around, without and within."

I love that. 

I need that kind of shield because sometimes I deal with difficulties that seem to come at me from all directions and even from within - from my own thoughts. How wonderful to know that if I'm willing to take up the shield of God, He will protect me from anything life or Satan aim at me.

"Take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one." Ephesians 6:16
