My Knight in Shining Armor

Throughout this year, each day of the month, I'm "Treasure Hunting" in a Psalm. I've created a "Ponder Every Morsel of Truth" Book to record the truths as I learn them. The twenty-fifth of each month, I'm studying Psalm 121. Here's what Treasure I found today.

The Lord is your keeper; the Lord is your shade on your right hand [the side not carrying a shield]. Psalm 121:5 (AMP)

The Lord is your guardian. The Lord is the shade over your right hand. Psalm 121:5 (GW)

The Lord ·guards [watches] you. The Lord is the shade ·that protects you from the sun [at your hand, your right hand]. Psalm 121:5 (EXB)

Keeper: A primitive root; properly, to hedge about (as with thorns), i.e. Guard; generally, to protect, attend to, etc. -- beward, be circumspect, take heed (to self), keep(-er, self), mark, look narrowly, observe, preserve, regard, reserve, save (self), sure, (that lay) wait (for), watch(-man). 

God is my keeper, my protector, my guard! He’s my rescuing knight! 

God is bedrock under my feet, the castle in which I live, my rescuing knight. 2 Samuel 22:2, Psalm 18:2, Psalm 144:2 (MSG) 

Knight: champion, hero, supporter, paladin, savior, cavalier, champion, chevalier, companion, gallant.

I have a “knight in shining armor”—really something MUCH better—I have a GOD who guards me! The God who created all, the Almighty One, the all-knowing, all-powerful God is protecting me, watching over me, is guarding me. WOW! 

To create a positive day, I only need to realize that my “knight in shining armor,” my God, is standing guard!
