Sustain: to keep (a person, the mind, the spirits, etc.) from giving way, as under trial or affliction.
But You, O Lord, are a shield about me, My glory, and the One who lifts my head. I was crying to the Lord with my voice, And He answered me from His holy mountain. Selah. I lay down and slept; I awoke, for the Lord sustains me. Psalms 3:3-5 NASB
Cast your burden upon the Lord and He will sustain you; He will never allow the righteous to be shaken. Psalms 55:22 NASB
I will say to the Lord, “My refuge and my fortress, My God, in whom I trust!” Psalms 91:2 NASB
Lord, You have been my stronghold, And my God the rock of my refuge. Lord, You are my rock and my fortress and my deliverer, My God, my rock, in whom I take refuge; My shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. O my God, in You I trust, Do not let me be ashamed; Do not let my enemies exult over me. Psalms 94:22/Psalms 18:2/Psalms 25:2 NASB
🌹In God, whose word I praise, In God I have put my trust; I shall not be afraid. What can mere man do to me? Psalms 56:4 NASB
Our soul waits for the Lord; He is our help and our shield. For our heart rejoices in Him, Because we trust in His holy name. Psalm 33:20–21 NASB
Our shield is our trust in the God of all creation. No matter our circumstances – the highs and lows; the good; the bad; the downright awful; the joy; the pain – our heart rejoices. God, my soul waits in silence for You only; From You is my salvation. (Psalm 62:1) But I have trusted in Your lovingkindness; My heart shall rejoice in Your salvation. Psalms 13:5 NASB
Let Your lovingkindness, O Lord, be upon us, According as we have hoped (waited for) in You. Psalm 33:22 NASB
“According as we have hoped in You”. That is quite the statement. Our hope, waiting on the Lord, trusting His shield is protecting us in every circumstance in life, that He is our protector. . . What is your level of hope in God?
🌹The Lord is my strength and my shield; My heart trusts in Him, and I am helped; Therefore my heart exults, And with my song I shall thank Him. Psalms 28:7 NASB
Blessed be the Lord, Because He has heard the voice of my supplication. The Lord is my strength and my shield; My heart trusts in Him, and I am helped; Therefore my heart exults, And with my song I shall thank Him. Psalms 28:6-7 NASB
Who do you turn to when life becomes overwhelming? In whom do you trust with all the pieces of your life – the good, the bad, the ugly, the disappointments, the struggles, the highs, the lows? Has He heard the voice of your supplication because you cried out to Him? If you do, He will help you. Your heart will exult your God and you can’t help but to thank Him.
But You, O Lord, are a shield about me, My glory, and the One who lifts my head. Psalms 3:3 NASB
🌹He put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God; Many will see and fear And will trust in the Lord. Psalms 40:3 NASB
