My Shield Today and Through Eternity

Meditating on Psalm 110.

The Lord said to my Lord,
“Sit at My right hand,
Till I make Your enemies Your footstool.”
The Lord shall send the rod of Your strength out of Zion.
Rule in the midst of Your enemies! (Ps. 110:1-2)

These past few days saw me engulfed in indescribable grief, followed by fears that made me tremble as the onslaught of illness attacks bound me in bed, suffering yet again, then capped by more copious tears as disappointments, frustrations, fears, body weakness and sickness, hopes and prayers converged in one overwhelming moment. Illness, problems in the family, uncertainties – would they ever stop?

My prayers last night were marked by more tears, agonizing ones. Each pained sentence was punctuated by, “Help me, Lord!” It is during crises that our faith in God is as real as it could ever be.

Reading Psalm 110 this morning strengthened and comforted me. It reminded me that my Savior and Redeemer is always and forever will be strong and mighty for me and my family. He lives forever – why should I be afraid and grow faint? He is with me today, and He will see me through the end of time, vanquishing all my enemies which are sickness and suffering, problems and painful disappointments. Then He will gently guide me into eternity.

I might be linking up with these lovely blogs.
