God is Your Sun and Shield

February 7, 2019

Scripture Promise: Psalm 84:11
For the LORD God is a sun and shield; The LORD gives grace and glory; No good thing does He withhold from those who walk uprightly. 

There are 5 promises packed into this one simple little verse.

Let’s jump right into them.

First, God is your Sun.

Few things are more relaxing and peaceful than a warm sunny day. Sitting in the sun seems to warm you all over. When God is your sun, you never walk in darkness. The scary shadows of the night disappear in the light of the morning sun. Things are always clearer in the sunlight. Since God is your sun, you never walk in darkness, are warmed by his presence and have clarity for the road before you.

Second, He is your shield.

I’m not sure how big God’s shield is, but I’m sure it must be a big one! What could possibly harm you when you have God’s shield surrounding you? Fear disappears when you know that God is shielding you on every side.

Third, He gives grace.

Grace is God’s unmerited favor. Grace is not getting what you deserve. Because of the grace found in Christ, you have forgiveness of sin, and entrance into His presence with fear or shame.

Which leads us to number four; His glory.

You can experience his glory and presence because of His grace. The glory of God is synonymous with the presence of God. You can experience his glorious presence now, and for all eternity in heaven.

God Brings Good Things Into Your Life.

Finally, as you walk in His grace and glory, you can be assured that He is bringing good things into your life. In fact, He won’t hold back one blessing for those who walk in fellowship with Him.

There you have it, five promises packed into this one simple verse.

Since God is our sun and our shield, you need never walk in fear. If you are struggling with fear today, maybe this would be a great verse to memorize.

Let’s review it more time.

For the LORD God is a sun and shield; The LORD gives grace and glory; No good thing does He withhold from those who walk uprightly. – Psalm 84:11 (NASB)

Confess this with me.

Father, thank you for being my sun and for being my shield.
Thank you for your warmth, your light, and your direction.
Thank you for your protection throughout the day.
Today You are pouring over me your grace and glory.
Keep me close to you and every blessing you have for me.
In Jesus Name, Amen

    God had been my sun and my shield in all of my going out and coming in, through sickness, death and life’s changes. He is the source of my strength. If it had not been for the Lord on my side, where would I be?
