Our Strong Defense


"But let all those rejoice who put their trust in You;

Let them ever shout for joy, because You defend them;

Let those also who love Your name

Be joyful in You.

For You, O Lord, will bless the righteous;

With favor You will surround him as with a shield."

Psalm 5:11-12 [NKJV]


God is our Defender!

He is our strong place, our fortress.

He is our rock.

He surrounds us and protects us,

Like a shield surrounded Roman soldiers of ancient times.


In this we should be joyful.

We should shout for joy knowing that God is in control.

God has our back.

God will protect us.


Yes, we should shout for joy!



"But the Lord has been my defense,

And my God the rock of my refuge.

He has brought on them their own iniquity,

And shall cut them off in their own wickedness;

The Lord our God shall cut them off."

Psalm 94:22-23 [NKJV]
