to Sun & Shield–a website where I will post my thoughts, notes, and other writings pertaining to God, Christianity, the Bible and many other topics from a Christian viewpoint.
I chose Psalm 84:11 as the focus scripture for this website–“For the LORD God is a sun and shield: the LORD will give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly.” It explains concisely who God is to me. He is my sun because, like the sun that helps me see physically, he helps me see spiritually the path he wants me to walk in and he gives me insight to discern lies from truth and evil from righteousness.
He is my shield because he protects me from things, situations, and persons (spiritual and physical) who want to do me harm since I belong to him. In the midst of my walking in him, he grants me the grace to be who he wants me to be and when I live in that, his glory surrounds me. Additionally, as I walk upright (in obedience to his commands), he showers me with all kinds of good things that enhance my spiritual walk with him and help me grow closer to him.
My prayer is that this blog will be an inspiration and admonition to all Christian brothers and sisters that stop by. If you see anything on this blog that you feel can be used to edify fellow believers where you are, you have my permission to use it freely. All I ask is that you give me the credit for any work that I originated and that my work is not used for monetary gain. All of the information I post here is free of charge since I believe that whatever I share that is of the Holy Spirit is what God gave to me without charge. Additionally, with us living in the end times, it is important that Christians have as much truthful information as we can get without worrying how much it may cost financially because a lot of Christians aren’t wealthy enough to purchase everything that may be of help to them. So may God bless you as you read what I have shared and may you be encouraged to search the scriptures to see whether the things I speak of are in agreement with God’s word.
