Reason to Rejoice
Psa 5:11 But let all those that put their trust in thee rejoice: let them ever shout for joy, because thou defendest them: let them also that love thy name be joyful in thee.
Psa 5:12 For thou, LORD, wilt bless the righteous; with favour wilt thou compass him as with a shield.
Don't you remember the old days of sci-fi when every space ship and many super heroes had a force field? That invisible shield that popped into place at the push of a button or at the whim of a voice command? Now that was really keen!
Praise God for the reality of the force field of the believer, the shield of favor that surrounds each of those made righteous by the blood of Christ.
Ah yes, we are safe in the hand of Jesus, Who is held in the hand of the Father, then wrapped and sealed in the Holy Spirit and then guarded by angels too boot!
And because we are defended by our Sovereign we need to ever shout for joy. AND, one day soon, the transporter will be activated and we will be made immortal in the blink of an eye.
The Sci-Fi Channel can only dream of such stuff!
