Sunday Scriptures — Shields Up

By Sandy Kirby Quandt

There is a phrase from Star Trek which I’ve begun telling myself. No, not “Beam me up.” I’ve decided to say, “Shields up!” whenever I feel under attack.

Toxic people surrounding us? Shields up!

Improper thoughts? Shields up!

Frustrated plans? Shields up!

One too many disappointments? Shields up!

Unbearable work situation? Shields up!

Unfavorable doctor report? Shields up!

If man-made shields were good enough to protect the Starship USS Enterprise against the attacks of the Wrath of Khan, Romulans, and Klingons, then I am convinced nothing can stand against our much superior Shield of God.

Feeling under attack? Shields up, my friend.

This God — how perfect are his deeds, how dependable his words! He is like a shield for all who seek his protection. 2 Samuel 22:31 (GNT)

I wish you well.
