a sun and shield

Psalm 84:9-12 (JDV)

Psalm 84:9 Look at our shield, God; gaze on the face of your anointed one.
Psalm 84:10 Better a day in your courts than a thousand anywhere else. I would rather stand at the threshold of the house of my God than live in the tents of wicked people.
Psalm 84:11 You see, Yahveh God is a sun and shield. Yahveh grants favor and honor; he does not keep back a good thing from those who live with integrity.
Psalm 84:12 Oh, Yahveh of Armies! Fortunate is the person who trusts in you.

God and his anointed one are both shields, protecting us from harm. God is also a sun, beaming down warmth and goodness and light. Trusting in our God is not a gamble. Just standing at the threshold of his temple is better than having a personal home without him.

LORD, we appreciate you. We count ourselves fortunate to be able to trust in you.
