“Your Truth is My Shield!”

“He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.” Psalm 91:4

Lies swirl in all directions like tornados set on a rampage. Cities, countries, and people are ripped apart due to their devastating results. But it is truth that steps in and says, “Not so.”

Not so, because God’s Word, God’s truth says something more than the destruction seen. Truth declares the truth, and nothing else. What He, the Father, has spoken, is the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.

Lies have been in the enemy’s playbook since the beginning, but truth beckons us to lean into what it says, apply it to our lives, and let it be our shield and guard.

When we open the pages of truth, we see in it something beautiful and fantastic. We see as it was always meant to be. Where lies seemed to have destroyed, truth steps in to reveal more: more love, more right, more restoration.

Lies produce ugly results, whereas truth will introduce peace, joy, love, happiness, and all those other beautiful fruits the Spirit ushers into our lives.

“Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth” Colossians 3:2. Set your heart on His unfailing truths that will never falter, or fail, or fade. It will always stand the test of time and the testing of anything we will ever face.

This world, and all the lies it fosters, will all be as nothing. Truth stands read today to take its place in your life so that you can have the best life possible, right now, in Him. Let His truth be your shield today and combat all the lies that are around.

“Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him.” Proverbs 30:5

Psalm 25:5 – Lead me in thy truth, and teach me: for thou art the God of my salvation; on thee do I wait all the day.”

Psalm 119:160 – “Thy word is true from the beginning: and every one of thy righteous judgments endureth for ever.”

John 8:32 – “And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”

John 16:13 – “Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.”

Ephesians 6:14 – “Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;”

“Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” John 14:6

Times of wilderness wandering can be hard,
and at times quite dismal. There is dryness in the
wilderness. It’s a place where one travels
where no fruit seems to grow and everything
around us seems sparse and without life.

Look up, dear child of God, because even in
these times, God is carrying the heart that
trusts in Him through their wilderness traveling.
In times of barrenness, when we may not see
or understand the whole picture, God is never
far from His children. As a man carries his
child to safety, so too does God for those
who hold on to His will and His way, and He
will see them safely to the other side of any
desert that may be before us.



Even in days of adversity, as hard as it may be,
we are called to stand. We are called to plant our
feet firmly on the foundation of our Lord Jesus
Christ and refuse to be moved. We are called to
“hold fast the profession of our faith without
wavering” (Heb. 10:23).

When we are threatened by enemies, God
has given us the adorning of holy armor to
cover us in times of battle. Therefore, dress in
truth, righteousness, and the gospel of peace.
Dress in faith and salvation, with much holy
prayer. Take up the “sword of Spirit, which is the
word of God,” (Eph. 6:14-18) that we might be the
victorious children of God we are called to be.
