Shielded from Every Device of the Enemy

“His truth shall be your shield and buckler.” Psalm 91:4
Psalm 91:4 starts with “He shall cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you shall take refuge:” and ends with this proclamation:  “His truth shall be your shield and buckler.”  What is the shield and buckler?  A buckler refers to a small, round shield used for close-contact fighting.  A shield is much larger, one you can dig into the ground and hide behind when spears, arrows, or rocks are being launched at you in a bigger attack.  So whether it is a small or big attack, His truth–your shield and buckler–covers you completely!
In Ephesians 6:16, it tells us to, above all, take the shield of faith to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one.   Why?  Because the shield of faith will cover you all around.  Amen!  That is why the devil is after your shield of faith–he wants to make you doubt God’s Word, which is His truth.  Once you take up the shield of Faith, his attacks against you cannot prosper.  So lift up your shield!
As you listen to messages about Jesus’ finished work and your faith is being built, your shield is also being built.  Even if you are found in the wrong place at the wrong time, the Lord can protect you when His shield of faith surrounds you and you are placed under the shadow of His wings.
