Verse of the day.
As for God, His way is perfect; The word of the Lord is proven; He is a shield to all who trust in Him.
The mere mention of a shield brings memories of a soldier’s armour. A shield is used protecting usually the chest regions. However, a soldier’s shield does fail; in fact most times, you find images of a dead soldier with his shield by his side. It failed him. BUT, there’s just one infallible shield – GOD.
As for God, His way is perfect…
There are people who try to be shields; some with good intentions, others with not-so-good intentions, but the fact remains that NONE of them come close to God. God’s way is perfect, cannot be faulted. Other shields are the converse, nothing near as perfect as the shield that is God (2 Chronicles 32:8).

The word of the Lord is proven;
To be proven is to have been put to test, and confirmed as having authentic claims. God is big on His word (Luke 21:33), so when He says I am your refuge and strength, He means and honors it; when God asks you to be still, then be still! for He is God Who is well familiar with all that has been and will be!
He is a shield to ALL who TRUST IN HIM.
Is God your shield? Do you trust in Him? Does your confidence lie in your natural abilities and astuteness which can only survive so long? These won’t be your refuge when the real storm rages.
You can’t take as much care of yourself as God can.
Father, You are my hiding place, my infallible shield.
