God Is Our Help and Our Shield

He is their help and shield. — Psalm 115:9
Read Psalm 115:9-15
Psalm 115 is a psalm encouraging God’s people to trust Him and worship Him alone. Apart from God, no one is deserving of honor and devotion. Idolatry is a trap that anyone can fall into. There will always be the temptation to worship other gods, such as our job, riches, or even ourselves.
Knowing that putting our faith in other gods is futile can help us renew our faith in the true God. The psalmist urges us to look to God as our only source of support and protection. We can have a confident assurance when we make Him our help and shield. The Lord remembers us from the past and continues to remember us in the present and future. “It is his nature to bless, it is his prerogative to bless, it is his glory to bless, it is his delight to bless,” Spurgeon wrote in his commentary. “He has vowed to bless, and thus be sure of this, that he will bless and bless and bless without ceasing.”
What hinders you from putting your trust, confidence, and reliance on God?
God’s blessing is for you!
