God is Our Shield - Even As We Shield Our Corgis
In Genesis 15:1, God tells Abram, 'I am thy shield... .'
When I am out walking Lu, my Corgi, I am constantly on the look-out for any threats that might endanger her; I am her shield.
I usually walk Lu in the dusk of the day, when it's not so hot, and there aren't so many folks over in the park. However, lately, I'm finding that there is another dog who frequents the park around this same time - a dog that has tried to hurt Lu in the past, (and, thankfully, Lu escaped unscathed).
So,these days, when I'm taking Lu out for a walk in the park, my eyes are constantly watchful for this particular dog, because I know it is a threat to my little babe; if I'm not watchful, what belongs to me could be mercilessly attacked.
This is the same with the Lord, except His perspective and awareness is infinite. He knows what threats exist when I do not, and He has promised that when I trust Him He will protect me. When I believe Him, when I believe His Word, then He will go before me and be my protection.
So, the next time you walk your Corgi into the park, and your eyes scan the scene for any possible threats, remember that the Lord does the same for you - every moment of every day - when you are walking in belief of His Word and His promises.
Note: This passage of scripture arises from the situation described in Genesis 14:18-23, when Abram refuses the riches from the King of Sodom - which were rightfully his. He chose instead to look to the Lord for his provision and protection, and because of this wise choice the Lord told him, 'I am thy shield and thy exceeding great reward.' (15:1)
