Every word of God is flawless; he is a shield to those who take refuge in him.
I love, love, love this verse. I've read it everyday for the past two weeks. It makes me want to speak His Word out loud all the time! As I have meditated on this verse, I can just see His Word becoming this shield around me as I speak it out.
Why should we put His Word inside our hearts and minds? This is the answer. So it can become a shield around our life....protecting us, restoring us, encouraging us, healing us, giving life to our situations. When life comes at us...the Word, the flawless Word of God comes out of our mouth and we run into it and take refuge.
Don't you just love that we serve a God who is a refuge to us? I do. Where would I go when I needed help? No one here on earth can protect me and keep me like Jesus. This verse motivates me to put more of His Word inside of me. I want the Word to be the first thing that comes up out of me when I am squeezed by this life. I want it to spill out of me onto others so that they can take refuge in Him too.
The beautiful, inspired, powerful, Word of God. Go get some of it!
