You have become accustomed to reading My word without pondering its deeper meaning. You read but fail to apply the antidote to the problem that you are facing. Stop and meditate on the truths contained therein. Quiet yourself from all the noise pollution around you. Become like a child again and rest in My presence.
For surely I am a shield around you when you choose to stay under My protective covering. I am a good Father and I am always looking out for you. Whatever you are going through I have already been there, for I am outside of time as you perceive it. Decree My promises to you over your circumstances and watch Me move on your behalf. Do not bow to unbelief, fear or cynicism, for I am the God of suddenlies. Think of all the turnarounds in My Word and believe that I will act on your behalf as well. For I am not a respecter of persons. Rise up once again, My child, for I am with you in all your ways of obedience.
Psalm 3:2-4 The Passion Translation (TPT)
2 Listen to how they whisper their slander against me, saying:
“Look! He’s hopeless! Even God can’t save him from this!”
Pause in his presence
3 But in the depths of my heart I truly know
that you, Yahweh, have become my Shield;
You take me and surround me with yourself.
Your glory covers me continually.
You lift high my head when I bow low in shame.
4 I have cried out to you, Yahweh, from your holy presence.
You send me a Father’s help.
Pause in his presence
Proverbs 30:5 The Passion Translation (TPT)
Every promise from the faithful God is pure and proves to be true. He is a wrap-around shield of protection for all his lovers who run to hide in him.
Ephesians 6:16-18 The Passion Translation (TPT)
16 In every battle, take faith as your wrap-around shield, for it is able to extinguish the blazing arrows coming at you from the Evil One! 17–18 Embrace the power of salvation’s full deliverance, like a helmet to protect your thoughts from lies. And take the mighty razor-sharp Spirit-sword of the spoken Word of God. Pray passionately in the Spirit, as you constantly intercede with every form of prayer at all times. Pray the blessings of God upon all his believers.
