….his truth shall be thy shield and buckler. Psalms 91:4 King James Version
Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. I Corinthian 13:6 New International Version
Let’s continue with our uncovering of the truth being our shield and buckler. In the scripture above in I Corinthians, it tells us that Love(God the Father) rejoices with the truth. We already know that His truth is our shield and our buckler. So Love (God the Father) rejoices in that which shields you. That means that God the Father rejoices in that and with that which shields you. That also means that The Father just doesn’t cover, surround, protect and defend you. He rejoices in that which covers, surrounds, protects and defends you. He takes great joy in protecting you. Since the Father delights in protecting you, this should give you a greater level of confidence, peace and rest. You can rest in His protection. All this protection comes out of THE TRUTH. This makes this next scripture even more impacting.
I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth. 3 John 1:4 New International Version
That word walking in the verse is the word peripateó. It means to live, conduct your life, walk around. This means that this is the way you live ALL THE TIME. When you think of living in the truth, this means you walk around ‘conscious of the truth at all times’. You walk around KNOWING that you are ALWAYS HEALED. You walk around KNOW that you are ALWAYS PROSPEROUS regardless of what your bank account looks like. You walk around KNOWING that nothing can happen to you just like JESUS. The Word of God says in I John 4:17 that ‘as He is, so are we in this world.” This truth in I John 4:17 is a shield and a buckler to us. We are seated in Heavenly places with Christ Jesus. When you are conscious of this all the time you began to live the same victorious life Jesus did and by His Words, His Truth you do even greater works than what Jesus did. I didn’t say that, Jesus did. Think about that.
All the ‘blessed’ to you. Shalom!
