But thou, O Lord art a shield for me; my glory, and the lifter up of mine head.
But let all those that put their trust in thee rejoice; let them ever shout for joy, because thou defendest them: let them also that love thy name be joyful in thee. For thou, Lord, wilt bless the righteous; with favour wilt thou compass him as with a shield.
Psalm 5: 11, 12 (KJV)
The reality, joy, and privilege
of having Jesus Christ gloriously
dwelling within our hearts
is worth more than all the
treasures and pleasures of
this groaning, sin-filled world.
For Jesus Christ alone is
our shield, our glory, our
divine, holy, and precious
lifter up of our hearts, souls,
minds, and lives. For Jesus Christ
alone is our boast, crown, jewel,
honor, pride, hope of all hopes,
our shield, our glory, our praise,
our beloved, Holy, fierce defender
and the lifter up of our heads!
Therefore beloved brothers
and sisters in Jesus Christ,
we can always triumphantly
rejoice and have lavish hope
for Jesus Christ alone is
our earthly and eternal
treasure of all treasures!
Therefore rejoice and
revel in this mighty, majestic,
magnificent, and miraculous
Biblical truth, “But thou O Lord,
art a shield for me; my glory,
and the lifter up of mine head!
Amen, Amen, Amen, and Amen!
