This passage from Psalm 28 really resonates with me:
The way I see it, and Lord gives me the strength that I need each day, and protects me from the custom-made spiritual attacks – on my emotions and/or on my thoughts – from the enemy, which are designed to keep me off balance and questioning God’s good purposes in my life.
What a relief it is to know that God is the one who both empowers and protects me from these fiery arrows! True, the fiery arrows will come – sometimes in a very unrelenting fashion – but they are unable to take me out of the game.
Dear Lord, I thank You for being My Strength and Shield. As a result of Your great love and initiative toward me, I can trust in You and begin to walk in the logic-defying joy that can only comes from having a relationship of complete dependence upon You. Thank You for never leaving me alone! In Your name I pray, Amen.
