Strength and Shield

The nation had turned against David and in Psalm 28  he brings before God in prayer his situation. He trust in God to help overcome his enemies (v. 4-5). Our problems may not be as serious as David’s in this psalm but if we face a need or challenge, God will bless us with strength.

Verses 6-7 can be our own prayer if we use our experiences as stepping-stones along the path and believe our prayers will be answered. Like David, let us give praise to the Lord for being our strength and shield (v.7).

This day, think of issues or problems you are currently going through and lift them up before God in prayer. Leave them in God’s hands, believe He will hear this prayer, and be your strength and shield.

About Mark Shields

Mark volunteers as a member of the media ministry team at his church. A few years ago, he started an on-line Bible study guide called “This Day with God Devotional”. He uses this as a tool in his journey through the Bible. We live in a very busy world with busy schedules so this tool has helped him continue with daily Bible reading and study. Each of the studies are designed to help apply our faith in the work place, at school, or at home. Join him on this journey or check in every so often to read his thoughts.
