Genesis 15:1 After these things the word of the Lord came to Abram in a vision, saying, “Do not be afraid, Abram. I am your shield, your exceedingly great reward.”
A shield is a protective weapon used in battle to protect oneself from being injured or wounded by the opponent. God has covenanted with us to be our shield from the attacks of the enemy.
Psalms 115:9 O Israel, trust in the Lord; He is their help and their shield.
Psalms 115:10 house of Aaron, trust in the Lord; He is their help and their shield.
Psalms 115:11 You who fear the Lord, trust in the Lord; He is their help and their shield.
We are the seed of Abraham and this promise is also for us. David counted more on the Lord to protect and defend him than his weapons of war. On countless occasions, David escaped the attacks of his enemies the Lord's shield. David knew this promise to his father Abraham so well that he boldly confessed that the Lord is my shield in Psalm 28, in verse number 7 and again in Psalm 144 in verse number 2.
Its prayer time. When we pray according to His will, He hears us.
Heavenly Father thank you that I am a seed of Abraham and a partaker of every promise you made to Abraham through Jesus Christ. Oh Lord be a shield around my family, health, business, marriage, finances and everything rhing that concerns me in the name of Jesus. Amen.
God bless you.
