2 Samuel 22:31 (NLT)
31 “God’s way is perfect.
All the Lord’s promises prove true.
He is a shield for all who look to him for protection.
2 Samuel 22:31 (NIV)
31 “As for God, his way is perfect:
The Lord’s word is flawless;
he shields all who take refuge in him.
2 Samuel 22:31 (MSG)
31 Every God-direction is road-tested.
Everyone who runs toward him
Running for cover usually takes place when something nasty is happening, right? Lightning, bullets, Richard Simmons, etc. But what do we do with all of the usual “stuff” that our days consist of? We’re not living in perfect harmony – actually, there’s a ton of dis-harmony in our daily lives. How do we get protected to live through that?
Run for cover. This cover though lets you stand tall out in the open. Run for cover in His words. I find it amazing how, in the middle of raucous discord, strife, and basic insanity, God’s words bring peace, clarity, and safety.
Run for cover behind a shield of sanity. Run for cover behind God’s wisdom. Run for cover behind the strength of The Way, out in the open, standing tall, fearlessly, knowing he shields all who look to him for protection.
