7 the LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in Him, and I am helped. Therefore my heart rejoices, and I praise Him with my song.
I am really not sure what I want to say. I keep typing and erasing what I’ve typed. I do not know what God wants me to know, or you to know from this verse. It is so beautiful. The part(s) that stand out to me most, is God being our strength and sheild.
I looked these words up…
Strength: mental power, moral power, courage
Sheild: something that protects
Trust: reliance on the integrity, strength, ability, etc., of a person or thing: confidence
I’m a person who likes to look up stuff! But see how it helps? The Lord is our mental power, our moral power, our courage to make it through the day. He is also the thing that protects us mentally, physically, emotionally, spiritually throughout the day.
Onto trust…Do you rely on His integrity? His strength? (My goodness) His ability? We should! That is something that we all need to work on. I know that I don’t always rely 100% on God to do the little things for me, when I should.
My church is going to Mexico in a week and a half. Keep us in your prayers. Pray that God will help us keep Him as our strength and song, and be able to show that to the people that we are going to minister to.
