Topic: Your Sun and Shield [Joel and Victoria Osteen’s Devotional 10 August 2019]
“For the Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord bestows favor and honor; no good thing does he withhold from those whose walk is blameless.” – Psalm 84:11, NIV
Scripture says that God wants to be our sun and shield. What does the sun do for us? It lights our way, it keeps us warm, it nourishes the plants of the earth so that we can have food. The earth is sustained by its relationship to the sun, and God wants to sustain you through your relationship with Him. He also wants to be your shield of protection against all the fiery darts of the enemy. He wants to light and direct your path.
Are you ready to receive Him as your sun and shield today? Have you been relying on something or someone else to be your protection or give you direction? If you have, decide today to lean on your heavenly Father. Open your heart and receive all He has for you. Receive His favor, blessing and protection today. Let Him be your sun and shield as you move forward in victory all the days of your life!
PRAYER FOR TODAY:
Father in heaven, today I open my heart and mind to You. I receive Your blessing and favor and ask that You direct my every step. Show me Your ways so that I may walk with You today and always in Jesus’ name. Amen.
