Psalm 84: 11-12
11For the Lord God is a Sun and Shield; the Lord bestows [presents] grace and favor and [future] glory (honor, splendor, and heavenly bliss)! No good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly.
12O Lord of hosts, blessed (happy, fortunate, to be envied) is the man who trusts in You [leaning and believing on You, committing all and confidently looking to You, and that without fear or misgiving]!
Beloved it is an awesome place to be found in Christ our Lord! It is such a place of grace and favor; that when we come into the presence of the Almighty God, it should be our desire and request that He would look upon the Christ, The Anointed one of God and bestow His grace and favor and glory upon us for Christ’s sake.
Beloved, when we walk in the footsteps of Christ and do those things that are right in His sight, then God will recognize the Christ in us, and He promised not to withhold no good thing from us!
Beloved, if God be our God, he will be to us a Sun, to enlighten and enliven us, to guide and direct us. In this present world, we face many dangers, but have faith in the Living God, he will be to us a Shield, to secure us from the fiery darts that come to kill, steal and destroy us. When men see the peace of God abiding in us, in spite of our trials and tribulations, we are to be envied by man. We give God the glory, because as it is written, the Lord, our God is our Sun and Shield. It is He that shines in our darkest of places and protects us from all the darts the enemy shoots our way. Beloved, God’s Glory is His goodness toward us! It gives us that “perfect peace” that passes all understanding. That is why the Psalmist says, “O Lord of hosts, blessed is the man who trusts in You.” It is the believer’s pleasure to be made into the image of the Christ, the Anointed One of God, and looking with great expectation to live in His presence forever. Therefore, let us continue this journey walking uprightly; and trusting in God to give us those things which is good for us.
