The LORD is your guardian; the LORD is your shade; he is beside you at your right hand. The sun shall not harm you by day, nor the moon by night. The LORD will guard you from all evil; he will guard your life. The LORD will guard your coming and your going, both now and forever. Ps 121
Oh how that tempter is always right there, sitting on our left shoulder, trying to get us into trouble. He’s there in what we listen to. He’s there in what we watch. He’s there in what we think and say.
But we DO have a protector! The LORD is our guardian! And unlike the rest of the fable – the Lord is not sitting there on our right shoulder – He’s deep within our very hearts. We don’t need someone shouting in our right ears as someone else is shouting on our left. We KNOW, at that very moment, when we are being pointed in the wrong direction. And then we have the choice. God gave us free will because He loves us so very much! So we can choose to listen to our inner protector, or not. And OH, it is SO very freeing when we listen. What an awesome life obedience is, because God loves us and ALL He’s about – is our good. And for that we give Him thanks!
