Darts of Shame

Verse of the Day

The LORD is my light and my salvation– whom shall I fear? The LORD is the stronghold of my life– of whom shall I be afraid? [NIV] Psalm 27:1

….

If you truly believe that the Lord truthfully is that stronghold, that fortress of your life, where you are shielded and protecting from every form of danger or attack, then that knowledge, that assurance is enough to make you unafraid of what might be happening around you or even out there. There may be rumours circulating at your work place that there may be job cuts on the way / that your contract which is coming up for renewal may not get renewed, don’t let that bother you. You may be believing God for that life partner, starting a family/children, that settlement in your marriage, that establishment, materially and physically, and it all appears not to be forthcoming; and because you are getting on in age for that reason you or others around you may have started to see your life as incomplete; again I say to you, have no fear. You will never suffer shame or humiliation. Yes, trials will come, for a time, but because you know the Lord is that shield, protecting you from all forms of tribulations, that assurance is enough to quench the fiery darts of shame and disgrace when thrown against you. Do not be afraid, the Lord who is your light and salvation will not let them harm you! #Verseoftheday #Devotional #Jesus #DartsOfShame
