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.
O Lord of hosts,
blessed is the one who trusts in You! Psalm 84:11-12
In these two short verses, we find promises for those who walk in God’s light:
- Light. God shows the way we should go.
- Shield. God provides His protection for His followers.
- Grace. God bestows His favor upon His children.
- Glory. God gives honor, a weightiness or fullness, to those He calls His own.
- Blessings. God creates a blessed state in the one who trusts in Him.
My prayer for you:
Lord, bless, I pray, Your dear children. Shine Your light on their paths and protect them with Your mighty shield. Pour out Your fullness upon them and keep them on Your righteous path. Lord of hosts, fill Your dear children with the blessing of great faith as they trust in Your great faithfulness. For You are our glory, our might, and our strength. We love you Lord.
