The past few days I have talked with so many people who appear to be waiting upon the Lord for a big answer to a long time prayer. Also, I have noticed that many of my friends and loved ones are experiencing vigorous spiritual attacks from the enemy of our souls. During those many conversations I have had with various people, I just keep hearing the Lord say to me: “Greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world”(KJV).-1 John 4:4
We MUST remember that God has already won this battle. HE is so much bigger than our problems, requests and ANYTHING the devil can throw our way.
So, let us keep our chins up during this fight. Lift up your shield(which is our Lord) and fight on. God will deliver us all no matter how dire our circumstances appear to be.
Let the Holy Word of God give you some hope today. It says: “My shield is God Most High, who saves the upright in heart.”-Psalm 7:10(NIV)
The poem below depicts the long struggle this life can be. It can ebb away at our hope if we let it; or, we can continue to lift up our shield(God) and continue one more step.

My Shield Will I Lift Up
a poem by Chris
The money-changer’s hand comes to snatch my coin
But my shield will I lift up.
The flaming arrows seek to destroy
But my shield is God Most High.
A rock was placed to watch me stumble
But my shield I throw aloft.
I keep my heart faithful and humble
For my shield is free from rot.
The valley is dark and the path is narrow
And my shield is my defense.
Thieves they come to seek my marrow
But my shield is quite immense.
When one step further is one too much
My shield blocks the fray.
When to my chest my faith I clutch
my shield knows the way.
So onward and upward to battle I come
Bringing my shield to peril’s door
Having no fear of my enemy’s drum
I hoist the shield once more.
