Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him. ~ Proverbs 30:5
How precious are God’s Words! I recently read about a Chinese Christian who prayed for a Bible. He prayed for many months before finally receiving a copy. It was delivered at night so that the couriers would be less likely to be arrested by the Communist government for simply having a Bible. I’m sorry to say that I don’t value God’s Words the way I ought to. I often take for granted the privilege of owning my own copy – in fact, many copies! – of God’s Holy Word.
This verse also says that those who put their trust in Him have the greatest protector of all. Better than a Glock, better than the newest high-tech security system, better than a hundred armed guards is the Lord! Nothing goes without His notice. Not one of His children can escape His watchful care.
God’s Words are pure, His arm is strong, and His grip never loosens.
Blessed be the name of the LORD from this time forth and for evermore. – Psalm 113:2

How do people live without that shield? I feel very sad for them, and I long to open their understanding as to what they are missing. They don’t have that strong tower to run into! Like you, I know I do not treasure His word as I should. I want to have a greater hunger and thirst for every pure word.
Ah yes! If only it were in our power to open their understanding! Thanks for commenting. Love you!
