Verse For Thought:
For a few moments I would like to direct your thoughts to the following phrase, “he is a buckler to them that walk uprightly.” A buckler is any means of defense or protection according to dictionary.com. Well now this is going to get good.
God defends and protects them that walk uprightly. Let me ask you a question, “How is your walk with God?” Most of us would have to agree that it needs improvement. More improvement for some than others.
God protects them that walk uprightly. That means as long as we are striving to do right and grow in knowledge while trying to walk closer to God. When we sin we ask God for forgiveness as soon as possible. Then we turn from it with the intention of not returning to commit it again on purpose.
If this is true then God is defending and protecting us. This is so important because we need him defending us continually building a protective hedge about us. So that we will have a fighting chance when the devil tempts us to sin.
Remember this one thought, “God’s protection around us every moment of every day defending our every step against the sin in this world is what we need.”
Are you walking uprightly so that God is protecting and defending you?
