"The Lord is my strength and my shield; My heart trusted in Him, and I am
helped; . . ." (Psalm 28:7, NKJV)
The Psalmist, David, in this verse reminds himself of where his strength comes
from. He prays and acknowledges that he is relying on God to be his strength and
shield of protection.
We must do the same. We must remember that God is our strength and our shield
of protection. We must rely on Him to give us the strength we need to overcome
and conquer every struggle we may face. As David prayed and declared, we also
must pray and declare. Prayer is an acknowledgement that we do not know it all
and we cannot live this life without God. Therefore, we must declare in prayer and
confess that we need Him to be our strength and shield.
Do not attempt to live this life in your own strength. None of us has enough
strength or knowledge to make it in this life without God. The good news is that
we do not have to try to make it on our own. Know that God will be your strength
and your shield. All you have to do is just RELY ON HIS STRENGTH.
