A Shield About Me

On Sunday morning in the second service we were singing the old song based on Psalms 3:3, “A Shield About Me”.  My wife, who was leading worship felt impressed to linger for a while on this song, which was the last in our list.  It contained both a statement of faith, and the response of worship.

I later preached on the triumphal entry, it was Palm Sunday after all, but I included the prophetic word that Jesus spoke over Jerusalem, and the episode of Jesus driving the merchants, and money changers out of the temple.  I refered to judgement against the city, and in the temple.  I connected these to a warning that judgement could come against our country, and even against Christianity.  Would anyone deny the presence of sin in our land, or in the church that calls itself Christian?

However, the good news is; for those who are trusting in the Lord, for those who are faithful and obedient, God will be a shield about them.

    No matter what is going on in our lives, it does not take God by surprise. When we commit our lives to Him, we we give Him complete reign in our lives, then everything must go through Him in order to get to us. He is that shield. Sometimes I can forget that – especially when what it going on is painful. Yet God is still on the Throne both over the earth and over our life. ”

    He is the glory and the lifter of my head!”
