The Lord is my Strength and my Shield (Ps 28)
Whereas last week we considered God as a stronghold, this week we consider God as your strength and shield. They are parallel themes and the Psalm gives us a model for our own prayers.
So, do not lose heart or the will to pray. We need God to answer, and he will. Why? Because we are always in danger. It may not always feel as though this is the case. When circumstances seem to be comfortable and good, we must not be fooled and the opening of the Psalm helps us understand why.
