LET THE LORD BE YOUR DEFENSE
"But the Lord has been my defense, and my God the rock of my refuge."
Psalms 94:22 (NKJV)
Imagine being a poor widow, a stranger in the land and holding one of the lowliest jobs in society. That was Ruth’s situation, so it would have been easy for her to feel vulnerable and defenseless. But because she trusted the Lord (Ruth 1:16), He placed her under Boaz’s protection.
Boaz, the owner of the field she worked in, commanded his young men saying, “Let her glean even among the sheaves, and do not reproach her.” (Ruth 2:15) What he was saying to his men was this: “She might be a gleaner, but because I care for her, treat her with respect and make sure she is not put to shame.”
Boaz is a picture of our Lord Jesus. If you are feeling vulnerable and defenseless right now, imagine Jesus commanding His angels, “Watch over this one who belongs to Me. Make sure he is treated with respect and not put to shame because he is someone I love and someone whom I died for.”
God’s Word tells us that if God is for us, who can be against us? (Romans 8:31) No one who has set himself against us can prevail because when God is for us, His protection is upon us. That is why I have never answered any of the poison email messages which I have received in the course of my ministry.
My attitude is this: Jesus is my defense. If He does not defend me, it means that there are things in my life that are not to be defended, and I would be glad to find out about them now rather than later. On the other hand, because I take the Lord as my defense, and He defends me, what can those who are against me do to me?
When you defend yourself, you have only your two hands and your own human resources. But when you let Jesus take up your defense, He defends you with His nail-pierced hands and His legions of angels! The results will be amazing.
Beloved, the Lord is your defense and refuge. Trust Him to defend and protect you!
Thought For The Day:
If the Lord is your defense, what can those who are against you do to you?
By Joseph Prince
Please say this Prayer of Faith if you want or need more of God in your life:
Dear Heavenly Father,
I repent and come before you just as I am, with all my sins and faults. I confess
Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior. I believe in my heart that you sent your Son,
Jesus Christ to die on the cross for me and on the third day you raised him from
the dead. I thank you Lord, for receiving me now, forgiving me, healing me,
protecting me, making my life brand new, and for writing my name in the book of life.
In the powerful name of Jesus I pray. Amen.
