Hold Up Your Shield


Psalm 89: 18
“For our shield belongs to the Lord, our King to the Holy One of Israel.”


What is a shield used for? It is used to protect oneself from harm or danger. I, therefore, ask you; how are you using your shield? What belongs to the Lord should be used to glorify the Lord. How can a shield glorify God? It can glorify God when it is shared! There is so much going on in our world that is dangerous to our brothers and sisters, it is time we pull out our shields! Our shield must help protect others, as they too are children of God, precious in his sight. So why should they suffer alone?

How can we use our shields to protect others? We can use our voices; speak out against injustice! We can use our dollars, financially support relief, do not spend money with companies that promote division and hate! Use technology to ensure no wrong goes without documentation! Use your God, pray for the suffering and hurting,but pray also for the enemy!

The time is now! Hold up your shield, sisters and protect one another! Keep one another safe from harm whether that harm be verbal or physical. Keep one another safe! Why? Because you are equipped by Jesus Christ, our Lord to protect God’s children.

May peace be with you!
