I am pretty sure that I would not be around anymore if it wasn’t for my Jesus being a shield to me. Time and time again He has protected me from an enemy too big for me, fought my battles for me, sheltered me from a tornado that would have swallowed me whole, kept me from the deep scars that fires bring. Yes, I have faced the enemy, and the tornadoes and the fires, but He has always been there, like an umbrella over my life. Yes, I felt like a worm in front of an alligator, a mere human tossed in a storm, a child in the fiercest of fires, but He was there with me, shielding me with Himself. He is my shield indeed.


I am pretty sure that I would not be around anymore if it wasn’t for my Jesus being a sword to me. Time and time again He has fought my battles with His Word as His Sword, taken the offensive with it and destroyed a jungle that sought to choke me, deathly wounded the evil darts meant to destroy my mind, held an enemy at bay with the threat of His power. Yes, I have gone through some serious stuff, but His sword has always been there, like a watchman over my life. With Him as my sword, I have cut through the thickest of brush to make it to another place; I have walked through many lions’ dens, and I am here to tell about them. He is my sword indeed.


Jesus, He is amazing that way. He is my Protector and the One who defends me. He shields me and He fights for me. Jesus, He is the Great Shepherd Who always has my back.

My Shield and my Sword indeed. He alone knows how to be both.
