Our God is really a shield. He alone deserves all the glory for the immeasurable protection we have enjoyed over the years, even during the period of this severe pandemic that is ravaging the whole world (Exodus 15:1-2).
He did not allow our households to run helter-skelter, looking for help where there is none. To Him be glory and honour forever!
1.0 What is a shield?
A shield is a person or thing providing protection.
▪ A Shield is a form of defence. The very nature of a shield is to protect you from danger, risk, or other unpleasant experiences. It prevents something from happening to you or attacking you.
▪ A shield is a cover that protects whatever is behind it or beneath it.
2.0 God is our shield!
Oh, what fortunate people we are to have the Almighty God, the creator of the whole universe, the author of life, Alpha and Omega, the sovereign God as our shield. Brethren, we have nothing to fear. He is our cover and protector and defence.
He is also;
1. Our strength and help - Ps. 28:7-8, Ps. 115:9
2. He is our rock, our fortress and deliverer - Ps. 18:2-3
3. He is our shield - Gen. 15:1, Ps. 33:20, Pro. 30:5, Ps. 3:3
4. He is our shield and sun - Ps. 84:11
5. He is our defence - Ps. 89:18
Brethren relax, God is in control (Ps. 37:7, Lam. 3:26, Ps. 62:5-7).
With Christ in the vessel, we shall smile at the storm!
