“We wait in hope for the Lord; he is our help and our shield.
In him our hearts rejoice, for we trust in his holy name.
May your unfailing love be with us, Lord,
even as we put our hope in you.”
Psalm 33: 20-22
We often think of God helping us, but have you ever thought of the Lord, as your shield? Kind of cool huh?
When we look at the next line, we see that God wants us to have our hearts rejoicing. The two lines are very much connected. When we are we rejoicing in God, He becomes our shield! Yay! He is our protector.
And here, our waiting in hope is that active trusting, and having faith in Him, that we’ve mentioned before.
And I love the prayer at the end, asking that His unfailing love be with us! Amen!
Lord God, these lines say it all. Help us to trust in you, with our hearts rejoicing. Be a shield for us Lord God, and may You be with us always. Amen!
