Psalm 3:3 (NASB) "But You, O Lord, are a shield about me, My glory, and the One who lifts my head."As we began to solder the pipe together, we had to first put a shield around the wood that was exposed! Today we find God's Word speaking to us about the Lord being our shield and our glory and the One who lifts our head! Crawling around under the cottage and trying to solder pipe can lead to a dangerous situation. If we allowed the heat of the torch to touch the dry wood, we could have burned the place down. In life, we will face heat, it may come to us as struggles, temptations, trials and if we don't put the shield of our Lord around us, we may just get burned. The shield we used while soldering deflected the heat and allowed us to get the job done. Putting the shield of our Lord around us can and will deflect the attacks of life. The question is, are we standing behind His Shield?! Let's not get burned out there but keep our eyes focused on the lifter of our heads! peace, tom
