THE LORD IS YOUR SHIELDStella Dhinakaran

Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding     (Proverbs 3:5)

The Dhinakarans “As for God, His way is perfect; the word of the LORD is proven; He is a shield to all who trust in Him” (Psalm 18:30; 2 Samuel 22:3). When we trust the Lord with our whole heart and acknowledge Him in all our ways, He will bring to pass everything concerning us (Psalm 37:5).

Just as the Bible says, when you trust God with your whole heart saying, “You alone are my help,” His presence will come upon you mightily. He will give you all the benefits which you expect to receive. The more you glorify God with trust, the more He will bless you. He shall be a shield to help you.

God personally and providentially led Moses and the nation of Israel as Moses completely trusted in the protection and guidance of the Lord. As he was leading the Israelites to the river Jordan, the waters which came down from upstream stood still and were divided. The Lord helped all the people to miraculously cross over to the other side (Joshua 3:15-17).

Yes my beloved, in all your ways acknowledge God and He will direct your paths. God is there for you always. Trust in Him alone in all circumstances. He will help you during challenging times and through all of the storms. He will help you to make the right decisions and lead you in the right way. He will be your security and help you to face any challenge! Even the Word of God says in Proverbs 3:5,6, “Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.” Yes, commit yourself to the Lord completely, placing your trust on Him and tell Him, “Lord, not of my ways; but by Your word guide me; You alone are my hope and my shield.” He shall surely guide you!


Prayer:

Loving Lord Jesus, I trust You with my whole heart and commit my ways to You. I wait at Your feet patiently for Your help. I place my complete trust in Your power. There is nothing that You cannot do. Please deliver me from my afflictions and prosper me. Bring to pass everything concerning me according to Your will. In Jesus’ matchless name I pray. Amen.
